    My Wii has like 3 years now. It has a lot of flaws, like the sensor bar that was bittten by my cat. I want to sell it and then buy a new Wii (black model).

    If I sell my old Wii, I can ask my parents to buy me an external disk drive to play backups via USB.

    Should I sell my old Wii and lose DVD disc reading to get a new Wii and move onto USB ISO reading?

    why not buy a new wii, and swap the disc drive...and maybe even the motherboard too. You really don't want to lose the capability of bootmii in boot2.

    Because the disc drive is very dull. It doesn't read some of my original games even.

    but dude what do you mean by "a lot of flaws"? because if the wii is working nice and the only things that are bad are minor things like the sensor bar I don't see the point of buying a new wii in first place.

    Edit: I miss your second post.


    If your previous wii does not read very well discs then you wouldn't be losing anything at all in your new wii LOL

    Honestly, if "only" the drive and the sensorbar aren't working anymore, I would buy a new sensorbar, and go straight to USB-Loading, without buying a new Wii. Should save you money, imo.

    It's a good advice but I bet that the OP really wants to buy a new wii and no matter what we say in the end he will discard the old one for the new.

    If I don't sell the Wii, I won't get the external disk drive.

    That's the problem.



    I think that I will keep the old Wii for the gamecube disc reading. Other opinions anyone?

    well, you could always buy a new wii and swap the logic card of the disc drive so then you have one with a fresh laser but is still able to read backup discs. But you really dont want to lose bootmii as boot2. It is a life saver.

    Just like I really don't need to have sex with my wife. We all know that having bootmii in boot2 is best and is the safest. And there are many people here that make bad mistakes. And being that the OP is asking questions like this then I would be safe to assume that he probably does not have a great understanding of how the wii works and so he is probably best to have bootmii in boot2.

    Don't get an external DVD drive, get a USB hard drive. Unless, of course, you have over 20 DVD backups with none of the original ISO's. Also, stop typing in blue!

    if you get a hdd, you can copy all your backups to the hdd with any pc dvd drive. Then you can feed the dvd s to your cat and enjoy games loading 4 times faster.
