    Hi there,

    Is there any way i can run wii games from my PC. I have set aside a hard disk for the larger games and i don't have funds for a separate external hard drive.
    Could you help?

    No, it has to be an external HDD or flash drive.

    you can but you have to buy a flatmii, its an old product now, didn't go very far. its not really a good idea. you have to make sure the pc is on the entire time. if you're able burn a dvd. if not, get an external.

    or just buy an enclosure for the hdd you currently have.

    unless it's your main hdd, in which case you just didn't think the process through very well.

    There is one way that works, but it requires the original disc so that doesn't do you much good [​IMG]

    Unless you are a filthy pirate, that shouldn't be a problem... [​IMG]

    No, the disc has to be IN THE DRIVE for Riivolution to work, so that defeats the point of loading it from the HD at that point [​IMG]

    There is a way, if you unplug your HD from the computer while using it and you have a SATA/IDE (depending on the type of disk) to USB adapter and an extra power supply for the disk like this:

    Why don't you just do this? This seems like the smartest way and doesn't seem to be that costly.
