    Hi!
    Is it possible to run games from an USB DVD Drive?

    USB DVD drive ?

    You can run games from USB OR DVD

    edit: you mean a DVD drive that plugs into the USB port?
    In that case: I think uLoader can do that

    I have heard ppl report success with this method, but it still acts as a usb device in the sense that you cannot play gamecube backups. I guess if you have one laying around it is good, but I wouldn't go out and buy one as a choice for a usb device.

    Dunno why they do that when they could use a USB external instead. Wouldn't an external DVD drive be subject to the IOS reload bug too?

    I think they do it because there are still a few games that do not boot via USB i.e CSI Deadly Intent, im not sure about the IOS reload bug to be honest with you, maybe someone who uses this method could clarify?

    No. If you use a USB DVD Drive then you still can't use games like CSI because you're still booting from USB, just not from a HD

    Just a heads up that i edited the title to include "DVD Drive" so people wont think this is just another external USB drive question (as i did when i came in here lol)
