    I heard that the newer Wii's are unable to read DVDs at all, is this the case with Black Wii's? My friend wants a black Wii, but only if he can mod it and play DVD games, not from a external HDD.

    Anyone know?

    One word, no
    They can't read burned discs or dvd videos
    In many words, if you want to spend money to buy the wii and then money to replace the dvd drive then yes......but otherwise no..

    Gambia, The
    Black Wiis are just THE example for Wiis that can't read DVD-Rs. All white Wiis sold in 2010 can't read DVD-Rs either!
