    is there any way to run games stored on an external HDD?

    similar to flatmii but directly with a hdd and no hard mods?

    I have a question too, can you run Blu-ray on the wii? With softmod plz [​IMG]

    No serious, you cant run games from HDD, the wii needs its drive (unless you have a modchip)

    Search. The answer is no.

    No. The Wii has the wrong kind of laser. Blu-ray drives use a blue laser. DVD drives (and the WOD drive) use red lasers which cannot read BD-ROMs, BD-Rs or BD-RWs.

    I don't know if it will be possible since the release of the cIOS usb 2.0. Hopefully they would be able to implement it into backup loading. One can always dream. [​IMG]

    Dream for a WiiZii, it can't load from USB, but from a SATA-HDD...if they will ever release it...

    I think this will come earlier than a Soft-Hack...

    No, you are not funny. And this guy ask for a thing that is actually possible to code, but not done (yet).

    a few months ago if someone would have asked about running a backup game without a modchip people would have made fun of him/her !!!! now if someone said is it possible ? people will say what a noob have you been in the closet for the past 7 months [​IMG] and I'll say this as long as there a code and many awesome coders and crackers it is all possible ( every Nut have a Cracker ) [​IMG] peace

    i think it was crediar who published a video of a working hdd/sd backuploader a couple off month ago. actually it was a proof of concept with its limitations but never the less it worked. he deleted the vid very fast but maybe somebody knows a link to a copy of it.

    i am sorry if it wasn't crediar and the vid was published by somebody else. but that's what sticked in my mind. feel free to correct me!
