    Hey Peeps,

    I need some help. One minute I'm told that a roms DVD will work with GenPlus without modchip the next minute i'm told differently. I finally decided to try this myself. I already have the HBC channel installed on my Wii. First I installed the custom IOS (Rev 02). Then I burned a disc with roms in Nero. Here's the prob. When I go to load the disc in GenPlus, my drive starts up and then I get a failure notice. If the DVD method is supposed to work without modchip, am I burning my disc wrong??? I would really appreciate the help of anyone without a drivechip who has DVD reading from GenPlus working. Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    That works without modchips? I was almost positive it needed one.

    As I understand it, it still needs a modchip. The custom ios only enabled the software part. But the hardware still checks the dvd too.

    OK I just stuck in a random burned DVD+R Apparently the first mini disc was a 1.4gb DVD+RW and the second disc was a 4.7GB DVD-RW The Mini starts to spin when i click load disc but you get weird drive noises. The 4.7 GB disc spins and gives the same sounds as a loaded Wii original but you get the same failure notice after a few seconds. I poped in a random DVD+R a few seconds ago just to see if it would try to access the files on it but yet again the same failure notice. This disc also gave the same type of loading sounds as a Wii original. Honestly I'm just trying to get to the bottom of this so I can share this with others like me (peeps who have the HBC but dont have drive chips). I guessing I should try a DVD-R next just the heck of it [​IMG]

    Is there any difference depending on when you insert the disc? Perhaps the System Menu rejects it, but maybe try inserting it after you boot the homebrew?

    you need a chip. The DVD block rejects anything other than legit discs. Mod chips force the drive to authenticate. Cios simply lets you read the full DVD unencrypted AFTER authentication.

    you still need a chip, emulators just never had access to the drive, with the IOS30 or what ever the homebrew channel ran on(IOS21 now i beleave) so it needed a special IOS to "unlock" the drive, the "new" genplus uses this IOS version. others dont
