    I did some research and found out that Nintendo disabled DVD reading with some of the later Wii model releases. I was wondering if there is some way to circumnavigate this (as I want to burn gamecube games to dvd's). Thanks.

    nope...not without replacing the drive with a DVD-compatible one.

    I have heard of some success in replacing the DVD drive in a newer Wii with one form an older Wii, but I have not done this myself. However, GameCube USB loading might be just around the corner.

    It's not usb loading, it's loading via SD-Gecko.
