    Wii No DVD rom problem

    Hi All,

    My DVD was nackered so I removed it from the Wii unit.

    Is there a way to play games from the USB drive with a DVDrom installed. Everytime I try & load a game from WiiFlo or USB Loader GX I just the the black screen

    *An error has occurred eject disc wii*

    How can I get past this?

    Thanks

    You should not have removed the DVD-ROM from Wii.

    Put the drive back in...even if it's only so you can play from the usb loaders, it doesn't need to completely work.

    I don't have the original drive anymore.

    I have a sundrive but where the ribbon connects to the sundrive it's been accidentally ripped off

    Any other ideas?

    You need to have at least the motherboard for the drive connected, I've done it, the usb loaders won't work if you don't have it there.

    upload picture to show "that bits snapped off...." before any possible idea can be raised.
