I've been searching for this problem here and elsewhere, for over a day before posting, can't find it. After alot of troubleshooting along the way, I think I have everything working, except that it doesn't. When I boot up, the LED stays on solid like it should and I can play normal nintendo discs fine. However, I still cannot play my backups. I usually get an error saying that the disc cannot be read I need to read the operations manual, and sometimes I get a black screen of death. I've quadruple checked all my connections, resoldered my wires to the wii, tried different burning techniques and burned two different games (cause that's all I have) at 4x and 2.4x speeds. My chiip is in the socket correctly. I do not receive any errors from avrdude. I ran BrickBlocker on my backups as well, could this have caused a problem? I also tried the OpenWii firmware and cannot tell that I have a chip at all using that, no LED activity. I am using TDK DVD+R 1-16x discs. Could the problem be the DVDs I'm using? They're listed on the chiip site as working. The two games I have backed up are Call of Duty and Tiger Woods if it matters. I have the GC2-DMS chipset. In other words, I cannot find a problem other than it does not work. Any advice is appreciated! I don't have a camera available at the moment for solder connections, but like I said the LED is solid.
