    4.3 external dvd drive?

    i have a 4.3e black wii and have just stumbled on to an artricle about hermes uloader:


    that seems to suggest i can run an external dvd drive with that loader to bypass the d3-2 p.o.s in my wii, i ask because i have one available

    also a boot2 q.

    im on 4.3 so dont have boot2 can you downgrade sm to a lower version to restore boot2? i want some animation and other bits and the reccomendation is dont touch if no boot2.

    thank you,

    adey

    Did you hijack someone's account? If not then you already know not to post external links and you know what the deal is with usb loading. If you have managed to forget then I suggest you look at the must read guide for noobs linked in my signature.

    and....... NO, you cannot get boot2.

    Ok, that makes sense then. Yes, you can use an hdd. Look for the fat32 guide and the compatibility list.

    hi skellinator, this IS adey. i was out on the lash last night, and declan was babysitting for me. sorry about the confusion : ) i gave him free reign of the house and pc logs me in on auto.
    thanks for your reply but i think you may have misread what he is asking, he has a black wii so no dvd media can be used, but he does have an external DVD DRIVE he has also found a loader that says it can load from ext dvd drive (uloader by hermes) but cant find anything recent about it, so the question i suppose is;
    will uloader work with a wii that has had the softmod any wii treatment (any conflicts with ios cios anything like that as it reqiures a specific one, so would he have that allready, and if he doesnt would installing it upset any of the features added by the guide?
    many thanks as allways
    adey

    nevermind skell, thank you anyway mate, i suppose ill just keep trawling the net see what i can find,
    it seems that it is the propper thing but im thinking that if its sorta fell out of use as better loaders have come along then there may be ball ache to be had using it now, but its the ext dvd function, it just dosent seem to be on any other loader and it would be right handy for our declan
    the search continues...................
