Basically the title says it all. I have the original launch Wii model, but the disc drive seems to be failing (very noisy and doesn't always read discs). I can't afford to get it repaired right now, and I'm concerned they might swap the drive for the D-32 if/when I do. I use USB Loader GX for most of my Wii games, but don't have all of my original retail discs backed up on it. I also have some gamecube backups that I want to be able to play, so my question is: Can uLoader use an external DVD drive to play retail Wii games? Or retail or burned gamecube games?
