    I have EVERYTHING installed but the DVD movies still will not load. I am assuming that I am playing the wrong type of DVD;s. I have not burned any DVD nor plan to. I want to play original DVD's such as Rush Hour 3. Mplayer CE says "mounting DVD" then stops and freezes on main screen after loading. Can someone please explain this to me? I have IOS 202 installed and Mplayer CE installer.

    Your thread title asks a different thing than your post.

    I don't think we can really link you to DVD movie downloads, cause it's pirating and it's not allowed here.

    Maybe you should use WiiMC instead of MPlayer-CE, you know? Just because it's well known that the compatibility is better (but still not perfect) there?

    If you want a 100% working DVD-Player, buy one for around, I dunno, we can get one here for 20$. Dang, Problem solved, and the lifespan of the Wiis Drive saved.

    I had this same problem with 'shop brought' DVD's - even though I had ios202 installed by NUS Auto Downloader, but it got fixed when I RE-install the ios202 from the WiiMC download page

    Have you tried that yet ??

    Which one of the two links that you gave me should I download and put in my apps folder? Then I will try it out and see if I get the same problem.

    So you have both of those links listed on your SD card? Or just the second link? I have already soft-modded my Wii thanks to Wiihacks help.

    And I have only downloaded the IOS 202 installer based on the second link. Do I need to download WiiMC 1.04 and the other files listed or just the IOS 202 intaller?

    I think I best try & explain what I did

    Firstly, I had already softmodded my Wii using 'completesolutions' guides & 'pimp-my-Wii' program (found in post on GBATemp), & installed 'WiiMC' first THEN the 'ios202 installer' (from the 2nd link) to allow to play DVD's - & it actually worked BUT I had some problems getting the USB HDD to work so......

    .... I used the program/guide etc from the first link to Re-Softmod my Wii.
    This got the USB HDD to work but I found that I couldn't play DVD's afterwards - having the same message you are getting so......

    I then downloaded the '202 installer' (from the second link) AGAIN & installed that.....

    ....Now I can use my USB HDD for backups AND Play DVD's


    Hope that clears it all up

    so I should only download the second link then? How do I check if the USB HDD works? All I want to do is play virgin bought DVD movies regularly on the wii. I don't have any USB things connected to it as it is too complicated for me.

    Then don't worry about it - just try re-installing the 'ios202 installer' (from 2nd link) & see if it fixes your 'invalid DVD' fault

    I only wanted the USB so that I could place backups of my paid for games & be able to play them without having to keep changing disks

    Alright I will just download the ios 202 installer and see if it works this time. If not I will complain again. I will delete what I have downloaded in the first link then.

    Well I'm stumped - I haven't had as much trouble as you seem to be having...
    ....However, a Google search may've come up with some possible answers

    (I'm assuming you're trying to use WiiMC to play the DVD's)

    When did you buy your Wii??
    another post I found said
    have you tried cleaning the laser in the Wii ?? - I found a very long post with this info in it
    Other than that - I'm totally stumped
