    Wow, I believe its time I update to a new loader. I believe my sister's Wii is using usbloader but an older version.

    it's useless if you want to use external DVD Drive to play the games, just use a HDD instead
    if you meant Movies then that's a different story, none plays movies via external DVD, you have to convert the DVD into files nd play then via MPlayer CE plugin in wiiflow or via HBC

    You're both wrong. Is not pratical, tricky and probably not so useful but it can be done (and i did it, only to do "everything the wii can do") but the now outdated uLoader can boot games from an external dvd drive (and i know that a certain number of requests were made to @Cyan to add this feature to usbloader gx) and wiimc too can read dvds :)

    I can confirm we got multiple requests for that support. it was asked on the issue tracker of googlecode, and is also on sourceforge. I don't know how to do it and don't have any external USB disc readers, so I never looked at that request.

    more surviving than alive.
    I don't have enough time to do all I want, and sometime even lack the knowledge (I'm not a good developer, more a tweaker of existing code, it's harder to create something new)

    I think you're underestimating yourself, you're doing a great job, constantly updating and improving this wonderful loader.

    "best" is very subjective and the reason why this thread exist.
    You can google or simply search this forum for their official threads - stickied even.

    I tried using postloader, because of it's NAND capabilities, but I couldn't get it to detect real NAND games and GameCube games, no matter what I tried. I wonder if those few people using postloader have those features working?

    (PS: also WiiFlow doesn't detect games. USBL GX and cfg_usb and neek2o are working fine, including emunand)
