can I use a USB HDD if I install a modchip?
I am reluctant to softmod anything after following Doggeggs 4.2 softmod guide to a T and ending up with a brick.
I just want to attach a modchip to the DVD drive cable, no soldering, no tampering.
Looks like im out of luck, is there at least anything on the horizon yet that can tackle this?
I followed Messies guide to 4.2 modding and it was flawless ... Twice.
Good for you. I followed it with no problems untill I installed Preloader. It never rebooted my machine and then bricked it.
I cant reccomend anyone try the 4.2 update who has a black Wii.
After looking around I have found that I can buy a full new DVD drive forthe Wii for £30.
My question is, can I replace the whole drive without leaving any perminant marks or damage, and preserve the warranty? (obviously I would need to put the original drive back in)
How easy is it to just swap the entire drive?
"You have to take the Wii a part and replace the drive.
Use an USB DVD.
Use a USB HDD."
Since the CDR8164B can read Wii Discs.
Can I install it into a USB enclosure and use it to play Wii backups??
If not, what do ou mean by :"Use a USB DVD"
Thanks in advance.
I have an older Wii that won't read back-ups anymore. I want to buy a new dvd drive for the Wii what model should I buy? Is a D2C fine? I have a usb loader and it works great. I just want the back-up disks to work also.
