    You can't play GC isos on a modded Wii.
    Takes a 5 second google search to figure that out.

    You need to install cMIOS as well - WiiGator's latest is probably the best, although I haven't done anything with GC backup loading in a while.

    You should be able to get the necessary stuff from FileTrip.

    You're wrong...Sort of. You can't play GC iso's on newer Wii's (without SNEEK). If you have an launch Wii you can. But chances are you don't. Sorry.

    That makes a difference?
    I haven't heard of any way to play GC ISOs.
    I know I tried when i first softmodded my Wii. Till I googled it wasn't possible.

    Neogamma and Wii Backup Loader (older but still works with GC iso's) are the most up-to-date (I THINK) applications that can play burnt GC games. Other than that, I'm not too sure.

    Are you sure cmios is installed? Does Neogamma give you an error? If so what does it say?

    ...Seriously?

    Don't burn your GC games with DVD-R's, use +R's

    Back in 2009 (I think) Nintendo realsed the "newer" Wiis with D3-2 drives (Most likely what ur Wii is) that disables backup loading through the disk drive!
    U would need the 2006-2008?? Wiis in order 2 do that! lol

    I know u can still hack the D3-2 Wiis 4 USB Loading, but that doesn't work 4 Gamecube games/ISOs unfortunately!

    Lol.. maybe that's why it don't work.. I've been using DVD-R's.. DVD+Rs may just be what i need to finish this.. I don't see what the difference is though.
    I have the old wii, when it first came out.

    No, DVD+R isn't going to help, it will just ruin your lens faster. By "DVD-R" it means burned DVDs.

    Switch to a USB loader or get an older drive.
