Why don't you go ask them? Did you even bother to read the forum rules? External link stricken.
I'm attempting at making a somewhat portable Wii. I've yet to take my Wii apart as I'm waiting for some tri-wing screwdrivers to arrive in the mail, but I assume the disc drive adds quite a bit of weight. I've already got everything working with my hard drive, so the disc drive isn't even being used. I assume that it adds quite a bit of weight so why not remove it? I just don't know if the Wii will act as normal if it's taken off.
I came across this thread somewhere else, where I don't bother to ask for assistance - instead I came here. It seems that even some channels won't work if there's no disc drive. Is there a cIOS or something that can make the Wii think that it's still connected?

I actually did read them. Unless I've missed something, it says I can't post links to illegal material, which I did not. Apologies if I missed a rule, but just because I broke one does not mean I didn't read any at all.
Instead of bumping & hijacking that old thread, I asked in a new one on that forum and this one as well. That thread I linked to was specific to the thread starters situation, which was different from mine. So to edit my post and mock me saying I didn't "bother to ask for assistance" was unnecessary. Instead of jumping at the first opportunity to show your "power" and trying to make me look like an idiot, you could have pointed out my error and tried to help me with my question.
Anyways, my response probably just killed this thread but I'd still appreciate any kind of help with the disc drive question.
The Wii will not function without the DVD drive very well, no Wii games, channels, WiiWare, vc, not USB loading works. You can remove the drive and only leave a functional drive board AFAIK, that would work giving room for an internal HDD.
