    I've found a possible solution for loading disk backups having D3-2 drives!

    Hello again! I'm not trying to be annoying with ideas, but I think I've found a solution which I'll try to code...

    People still want to use disc backups instead of loading through USB. So, I think it's possible to do both things with an USB data transfer cable and a computer.
    The idea is to simulate an USB harddrive with the computer, being possible to read the disc through its own DVD-ROM; so, games could be loaded with Waninkoko's USB loader with cIOS.

    The concept is similar to FlatMii, but it doesn't require external hardware and opening the Wii.

    but I don't think the Wii could read data directly to the USB DVD drive... I think there should be an intermediary

    EDIT: I 've recently read that is possible... But if you have a PC next to the Wii, it'll be useful for streaming without flatmii (and it's cheaper)

    uloader 3.5 and higher version support USB DVD drives

    uLoader GBAtemp.net


    - Support for DVD USB Devices: It can run only DVD backups from .iso (original don't work because DVD drivers donīt support the Wii format). Remember you must insert a DVD to work at start the program.

    Mode DVD USB
    ------------

    At Start:

    - Run uLoader with a DVD device connected in the USB port and put a disc.

    1- while the device is waiting to be mounted it display the next message "ERROR: Can't Mount Device".

    2- if it use expensive time to get the DVD, maybe the DVD device canīt read the disc (unknown format or other problem). Try reconnect the DVD device or change the disc by other.

    3- if it display "ERROR: DVD Device Sector Size must be 2048 bytes" you are using a bad format disc (for example CD audio XD)


    In the DVD screen loader:

    - It work exactly as DVD Wii device: You can eject and change the disc as you want from the new device

    NOTE: in this mode you canīt load disc from the DVD Wii device how it is obvious

    Would be interesting if one could do a cIOSCorp type mod that could load from external DVD drives.
