    I installed cIOS's to play backups and USB loading, I haven't even played a backup yet.
    But I noticed on retail GC games (loaded through the system menu disc channel), I get disc read errors.

    Do cIOS's effect retail gameplay?

    No. I don't know why you get a read error on your retails, maybe your drive doesn't work properly or the discs are broken.

    well ,I actually replaced the drive not too long ago, and the disc doesn't look very scratched.

    It depends what cIOSes you install. DarkCorp overwrites the IOS the disc channel uses for retail games with cIOS. If you just install a cIOS, it's in a certain slot and only used when the IOS/cIOS in that slot is loaded. The slots used by regular cIOS are 249 and 250 for Waninkoko's cIOS and 222-224 for Hermes cIOS. And retail games load IOS slots < 100.

    have u tried loading retail wii games?

    the disc reading channel depends on the system IOS to read discs.

    Did you install Wiigator's cMIOS? That's the one that does actually mess with retail disks through the disk channel.
