    External dvd drive with usbloader, is it possible?

    I have a softmodded 4.2E Wii with the new board, the one that doesn't allow to read recorded dvd-r, so as I read I can only run backups using an external hdd.

    My question is: using usbloader, can I connect an external dvd drive to load recorded dvds? Like instead of reading through hdd, to read through an external dvd drive?

    My mistake. I just got pwned by peet.

    It is possible, my appologies I misread posts which said it wasn't possible for GameCube games.
    I have to say that's pretty incredible. I wonder how many games are supported by Uloader.

    peet is correct with version 3.5 uLoader added support for USB connected DVD drives. Make sure to install Hermes IOS 222/223 ad uLoader 3.5 and 3.6 inactivate IOS249 as being unnecessary. Here is a link to uLoader 3.5 with Hermes IOS installer: uloader_v3.5.rar.
