I was running this little operation on craigslist, installing Wii modchips for 20 bucks... One day, some guy came in with one of those wiis that has epoxy on the drive chip... Long story short, I had to give the guy my Wii's DVD drive. So my Wii is now driveless... I've got HBC 1.0.6 on it, installed cIOS38rev17... I can run USB Loader GX and CFG USB Loader just fine, they detect my WBFS-formatted drive, they can see the game list, and even play the disc channel sound. The problem is when I try to run a game, I get a black screen for about 30 seconds, and then a standard disc read error message appears (Error occured. Eject the disc and reset your wii or whatever). What I'm wondering is whether the absence of a DVD drive could be causing the issue? I can't think of anything else... Could anyone help me troubleshoot this? Thanks!
