Have new D3-2 Drive Wii... Can I Play Gamecube Backups from SD or USB Gecko?
First off... I hope I am posting in the right place as I am not sure if there is a section for this. Admins, feel free to re-direct this if necessary.
Now onto my question...
I currently have a new Wii (purchased one week ago from Sears) that is a United States 4.2U wii. A friend came over and softmodded it. After getting homebrew on it, we tried 2 versions of neogamma and found that I have the new D3-2 drive.
After searching for a while to play Gamecube games without a USB HDD, I came across this thread on another forum below:
Playing backups through SD Gekko!! [Archive] - MaxConsole
After reading about it, I did further research and then I saw an actual Wiihacks thread on SD Gecko here:
SD Gecko seems like it's a viable option for playing Gamecube backups on my D3-2 Wii, however the older posts date back to 2007, and I am wondering if SD Gecko would even work on a new Wii due to the firmware updates Nintendo likes to issue. Does anyone know if SD Gecko will work on my new Wii (or if it will even boot Gamecube games on my Wii through SD card for that matter)? I read everywhere on the forums how the USB slots get "disabled" when a Gamecube game is played... and I am assuming the same thing happens with the SD slot. Yet, SD Gecko claims to work on the Wii. What do you guys think about this possible Gamecube backup idea?
