    I own a black Wii (not sure on a particular model number or anything), but I was wondering if there was any way possible to play burnt backups? Software mods, modchip, custom DVD drive (or maybe just swap a drive out from a white Wii), anything.

    I've read articles back in 2010 that state it isn't possible, but can't really find anything newer still stating such (perhaps this just means there's no way to do so still?)

    Cant be done without swapping out the drive. Softmod it using Modmii and play all your backups off usb.

    I have some SATA/IDE-to-USB converter adapter (Vantec I think), but any attempts to read off of USB with it in result in a freeze seemingly (tried WiiFlow, and two other USB loaders). I'll try looking into that a bit later though.

    But if I somehow acquired the DVD drive from an older Wii, would that alone (and softmod) be enough to play backups, or would I also need to flash it or modchip it?
