    Install a Wode without working Wii DVD drive?

    Wii DVD broke. Tried a new laser, no fix. Tried a new drive motor and I can't seem to get the torsion right on those size 6 torx tensioner screws because the damn thing keeps either grinding or just not spinning at all.

    So I'm researching Wode, and to me it seems if I was going to buy the $50 DVD drive to fix my Wii that won't run discs, I might as well front the extra 30-40 and just get a Wode instead.

    I can create my backups on another system and load them into the HDD and that should work without the DVD as long as I disable it enough to prevent the disc error protocols on boot up of the Wii, right?

    Let me know if I'm on the mark here.

    IDK, but posting this in USB HDD in and of itself seems less on topic than the WODE section of the site --- moved thread.

    Once you have installed the WODE there is no need for the optical drive at all. In fact I have taken my optical drive out as I do not want my kids to use the DVD's at all.

    Works fine.
