Can I replace a D3-2 DVD drive with an older one?
I recently bought a Red Wii and I soft modded it. I also went to pick up a 100 pack of DVD-Rs, I burned a couple games and tried them. None of them booted, I figured out that the Red Wiis come with a D3-2 Drive which is unable to read DVD media.
If I replace my D3-2 drive with an older one like a D2E, would I be able to load DVD media?
yes. And for around the same cost you could instead purchase a USB HardDrive and load with that. No discs to burn, much less hassle, much more convenience!
I know that I could buy a good HDD for the same or less as a new drive, but I just want to be able to play DVD-Rs too. I spent money on them already, so, I should use them.
