    Question External DVD?

    Hi,

    I have a softmodded 4.2E with the D3-2 drive so no backups in the internal Wii drive.

    Currently running CFG USB Loader to run backups from HDD. Working great, but which USB Loader will let me use an external DVD drive?

    Also with whichever loader I can run from Ext DVD, can i run backups burned from the iso, or do i still need to create a standard data disc with the *.wbfs files on it?

    Thanks for your help guys..

    uloader 3.5 and higher version support USB DVD drives which you can get here
    Code:

    It runs backup dvds burned from isos as you probably want anyway since you mention it

    There's really only one choice there, and it isn't the USB DVD

    But you can dump them all to your USB HDD, and still have room for 100s more.

    Don't get stuck into thinking you must run the backups from only a USB DVD drive, using your PC you can get them to the USB HDD as well.

    Yeah very true, I'll be getting a new USB HDD anyway, Im looking at a WD passport 500GB.
