If you can boot homebrew, that should provide enough as a base to be able to play backups of your legally owned games. Make sure you back them up properly first.

Mediums to play backups from

Backups can be played from a large variety of mediums. These are listed below in order of best to worst performance and stability based on my personal opinion.
