    Not sure how it got submitted twice cause it's supposed to be moderated. I did submit it twice without knowing though.

    I never thought of hooking up a USB DVD Drive to play DVD-R ... I'm not having good times with this WBFS. Might be time to start mass burning.

    Why would you do this, though? Does this work on the LU64+ models? My older Wii has no problem reading backups in it's built-in DVD drive.
