    I have a 2nd that doesnt have a disc drive inside but assuming it needs one to play wii games of usb? I tried installing dx cios to both 249 and 250 and still nothing. It can play gc games fine and it has gc ports so right now im having it as my gamecube. Is there a way to play wii games without the disc drive?

    nope - you need a drive. You can get away with stripping the drive and leaving the controller board in but you need that at a minimum

    Weird, is that a WiiFlow (Lite) thing or does it happen for all loaders?

    Yeah I’m pretty sure it is for all loader since it is not the loaders that need the disc drive but the games themselves.

    This thing doesn't happen to me on GX. (Then again I use d2x cIOSes, which I heard doesn't have this problem.)
