    Question State of GC backups on newer Wiis (firmware 4.2 & D3-2 drives)

    I just wanted to confirm my understanding of this situation for these Wiis.

    Links removed. Please no linking to other sites

    Is this all correct and have I missed any information about other methods for GC backup USB loading in the works?

    Your only option as of now is to buy a WODE to play GC games from usb since your wii can not read backed up discs due to the new chipset.

    If you could source an older drive (or rather the small PCB/logic board attached to said drive), you could at least still play'em on your Wii if you did a swapout. Still ain't USB, but it's something as an alternative to a WODE (if budget isn't a consideration, by all means buy a WODE!)
