    Idk if it's pozzible to completely remove it, but with priiloader you can enable a hack to move it, and put it out of sight on the last page of your channels

    I might be completely wrong as I don't know how people create preloader hacks, but I imagine one could be made to remove the disc channel... again this is all presumption based on the fact that other priiloader hacks can disable/alter major, important components of the system menu such as wifi, updates, and the backmenu.

    Just moving it out of sight is fine aswell. I'll check priiloader out, thanks.

    I've thought about it. My laser is knackered, so I can't use the disc channel anymore - might as well be gone. Viva la USB!

    And be prepared to pay a hefty fine if you installed homebrew...cheaper and better to install your own drives.

    Nintendo do not charge extra if they find homebrew, they simply refuse to fix it and send it back.

    and probably with 4.3 on it as well if they decide to fix it. just buy a new drive, they are like $40 bucks on ebay, or screw it all and go all usb. thats what i plan to do, a disc hasn't gone in my drive for months. only did to try to get rb2 customs working.

    Gambia, The
    You have to send a form with the problem of your Wii, your adress, date of buy and serial to Nintendo
    and you will get back this form incl. the right Wii. I sent mine 2 months ago. Before, I made an unmod an initialized my Wii.
    After i got it back, i recovered my Nand with the help of bootmii... No problem.

    You sure about that? There have been several reports of $200 bills for them finding homebrew...were they all fake?

    Ah. Thanks for that. I wasn't aware those were all EU reports.

    I'm in the USA, but never had to send my wii in (it had very light use until USB loaders came out), so I don't know.

    It's not that unreasonable to move the disc channel... With a softmodded Wii there is really no reason to keep the disc channel, especially if your laser isn't working. Even if your laser was working, you might want to get rid of the disc channel because you could simply use a geckoOS or NeoGamma forwarder instead...

    personally I've just set priiloader to load straight into CFGUSB when I turn the Wii on [​IMG] have all my usb games, access to disc load within the loader... and if I want to access wiiware games or emulators I just hit home and it takes me to the system menu where my disc channel is on the last page [​IMG]
