    i have a 3.2u wiikey launch wii with a dead DVD drive.
    it runs but cannot read from a disc.

    is there any way to get HBC and/or the USB loader installed?
    i can get it on the internet and the SD card works but nothing from the DVD

    thanks!

    If you're within the warranty and haven't opened it I highly suggest sending it back to Nintendo to fix. I find that sometimes they even fix things when out of warranty for free.

    Did you read the post?

    I don't think there's a way to do this without HBC and DVD Drive.

    Hi there, i have the same issue too.

    You can get a FlatMii chip and install HBC from ISO.
    Then i can use HBC to load SD Card with USB Loader.

    Hope it helps.

    I have both hbc+USB loader working but the loader won't boot games a/ a broken DVD drive. I have this problem and am waiting for an update that doesn't need it to load backups. Don't know if anyone is working on that type of version of the launcher yet.
