No, because a patch won't fix the fact that the drive is incapable of doing it.

The drive is capable of playing DVDs.  Homebrew allows the Wii to do it.

I wish more people knew that.

Last year Nintendo realeased a new revision of Wii´s which made it inpossible to play dvd´s even with the homebrew apps but on Wii´s before that revision you can play dvd´s

Interesting.

I wonder how they managed to do that.  Maybe the hackers just haven't figured it out yet?

it disables to read dvd-r discs and only originals work.

 

Someone with a new wii have to use the USB to play backups.

are you talking games or dvds in general? i know burned movies still work as a friend of mine got a fresh console and the method i mentioned still works.

was it a black wii?

is white. i live in the US.

then its still a wii with the old drive the white wii´s with this new drive just started to show, the first ones were in black wii´s only. It´s Nintendo´s new step to try and stop playing burned games and it doesnt read dvd movies either.

Weve been working with them since they came out and no one has still manged to crack it, it seems to be coded into the hardware and if that turns out to be the case then no one will be bale to break it.

What do you mean by 'only originals work'.  Are you talking games, or movies, or what?

that was cracked with software about a week of it being discovered as the drive itself is a dvd drive and the wii disks are dvds with special codes on them the firmware tells the drive to not accept discs without the code. the community is fast. within one day of the last firmware that blocked homebrew instal attempts and removed homebrew there was already a work around.

Well I guess that answers my question.

I dont think it does since this was introduced with the black Wii´s and just started to show up on the white ones all the major people working with this havent found a solution so unless he is a hacker or knows one I dont think its true

this particular wii was bought about a month after the price drop. does that fall in with that or am i just lucky?

I guess you could say you are lucky but there are still lot´s of wii´s around with the old drive so it will be awhile before it becomes widespread.

So it would still play regular movies?  That's what this thread was about.

I don't care if it doesn't play pirated stuff.

No it plays only original games all else seem to have been disabled. I hope someone cracks it but the best out there seem to have given up hope so i wouldnt count on it.

it´s not about pirated stuff even if it can be used that way, its about ease of use as you can rip all your originalgames on a usb memory stick or usb harddrive and always have access to them without the need to switch discs and you can also add every game as a channel so its pretty cool feauture.

everyone at wiibrew appears to be using the old method, nobody has mentioned anything about this. last thing i heard like this was that mod chips couldnt be used anymore.

do you have a board on hand that i could link to, maybe get more people working on it?
