Can I hack and play backups with no/broken optical drive?
I used to have a Wii a year or so ago, but it was collecting dust so I decided to sell it. Now I recently got a PS3 and decided to hack it, and have decided that doing the same to a Wii could solve my problem of becoming bored with the system. So I have started looking for a cheap used system and have found a couple on eBay or Craig's List for cheap with broken optical drives.
I have read the tutorials and FAQs pretty well through and have a good idea of what I need to do but I have one question that I need answered before I drop some money on a Wii.
My question is will I have any problems, restrictions, etc. hacking and playing backup games/Wiiware/VC titles from an HDD with no or missing optical drive? I ask this because I know with a hacked PS3 it is recommended/required that you have any original game disc in the drive to play backups, and I was wondering if this is the case with the Wii.
