    The DVD drive of my Wii is broken, it does not accept any discs but sometimes it allows me to play ISO from USB Loaders but other times the console gives me an error with the DVD drive.

    Is there any software fix for this?

    If not, what modchip do you recommend for this? I just want to play ISO from USB Loader. My Wii is a European console from day launch.

    I don't know, I can only check it tomorrow.

    Could the cIOS249 fix my problem?

    I'm seeing the Wasabi DX and Sunkey Lite for about 12 euros, not expensive. This modchips can act as drive emulators? If not, Wiikey Fusion can?

    It might fix it seeing as newer versions of 249 dont need a disc in the drive to run the games anymore

    Updated cIOS and USBLoader, softmod methods still require DVD drive to be fully functional. :\

    Does anybody know if Wiikey Fusion can act as drive emulator for broken drives?

    Yes but i think it only loads SD cards not USB drives. I would still go the WODE over any other chip

    For broken wii drives, SUNDRIVER is without a doubt a very good choice.
