    Netflix Disc

    Just a question, are there any benefits to copying our Netflix disc to USB Loader and running from there instead of running it from the disc itself? Just a question! Thanks!

    Well it is about the same benefit as backing up anything else to usb I guess. If playing original disks, is what you want to do ,then no reason to back-up to usb.
    If using a usb device, to make back-ups of your original disks sounds good to you, then you would want to do it.

    Understand, was just wondering if it would make anything run faster like the streaming of a movie or going from menu option to menu option. Didn't know if it did. I actually backed up every game I own and I guess ill just leave the Netflix disc in the Wii at all times for the wife to watch a movie when she wants huh? Thanks!

    Had to have been in last few days. I seen another user report this as well earlier.
    I don't know why they didn't just do this to begin with instead of shipping out a disk lol

    I just saw it about 10 minutes ago, after finishing a softmod for a friend. I was just making sure all of his channels worked properly and there it was!

    Wow, this is nice to have. I also like the new layout much better than the original. I copied it to a HDD because of the annoying sounds the disc made while trying to watch a movie, but now I won't have to keep it plugged in. Too bad it is only available in the important nation (USA) and Canada. J/K

    By the way, Nintendo just released this today.
