I've been working through this the whole day. Downgraded my Wii from 3.3U and everything. Even had to walk to the local Wal-Mart and pick up some Sony DVD-R's (sorry they didn't have Verbatims) with my last $12. I've googled and looked through this forum for answers, but to no avail. Disc: Sony DVD-R's Disc Burner: TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H552B updated to latest firmware. Disc Burner Settings: Tried everything from 2x - 8x. Some I redid twice with verification. No dice. Wii Firmware: 3.2U with new Mii Channel / IOS51 & Wii Shop cIOS: I have multiple, but the one I'm trying with backuploader and SoftChip is IOS 249. Not exactly sure which version, whichever was the one that came with that Downgrader pack. I believe it was IOS16-64-v257-prod? ISO: The only backup I'm concerned about working is Tatsunoko versus Capcom. Haven't done anything to it. Also, if it makes a difference, I'm not using channel versions of the loaders. I prefer just loading it off HBC. With BackupLauncher gamma it's giving me Disc Read Error 384, but manages to get the game's ID. With SoftChip, it's giving me an "error opening partition", but also manages to get the game's ID and some other info. I'm open to any ideas, but the last thing I want to do is buy more things. I have 25 Sony DVD-R's left. Gotta make the most of 'em. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. Sorry if I'm lacking info, just tell me what you need to know.
