    Can you run a backup loader without a DVD drive in your Wii?
    Will the state of the DVD drive affect game loading? (in general)

    Someone replaced his DVD drive with a HDD drive on time, it's on here somewhere.
    I can't find it though. Don't know the outcome too, but it's definitely been tried....
