tl:;dr version: DM(L) didn't work on my Wii when I had my broken drive installed. It wouldn't read controller inputs. Only when temporarily replacing my DVD drive did DM work. However, when my broken drive is installed, DM doesn't work. Any ideas of what can be done? Long version: For about a year now, my Wii's DVD drive was broken. After the advent of DM(L) and Devolution, I was excited to finally be able to play my GameCube collection again. Unfortunately, Devolution's anti-piracy locked me out and DM(L) would load games, but would not read my controller inputs. Not having controller inputs is a known problem, and numerous sources said to try loading a Gamecube game normally to fix the problem. Recently, a friend let me borrow his Wii, and he gave me permission to swap DVD drives. Before loading up a Gamecube game normally through the Wii menu, I tried loading via DM and it worked perfectly. I tried loading a game normally via the Wii menu, and it again worked. Next, I put my original Wii drive in and loaded DM, but the games stopped working again. I'm posting this to see if anyone else experienced this problem. This is also just in case it's an unknown bug or if someone else has the same problem. I guess in the meantime, I'll just verify my games with Devolution while I still have my friend's Wii on hand. Thanks.
