    DVDR Reads on new Wiis w/ D3-2 Chipset

    I have been reading the wonderful guide to softmodding the 3.1-4.1 Wiis by Dogeggs, and I was wondering if there has been a work-around that would allow my Wii to play DVDR.

    I have a virgin LU70 Wii with System Menu 4.0U.

    Thanks.

    There is no software-based solution for the hardware programming in the D3-2 chip. After you softmod your Wii, you can play backup games on an external USB HDD.

    These will be your relevant tutorials:

    Thank you.

    Is playing backups from an SDHC card a possibility at this point?

    emclinux is correct, you can play either a compressed or noncompressed game ISO backup from the SDHC. A typical Wii game ISO is 4.37 GB. You can also elect to format an SDHC card in the WBFS format and use a USB loader to play from the SDHC card.

    Most of the loader applications offer a menu from which to select your load source: disc, SD, USB.
