Hi all, Pardon for the call for help, but I was wondering if anyone has had the same issue I was having...and if they did, what did they do to resolve the issue. To start, I have a launch wii softmodded with the following US 4.1 firmware Seagate freeagent GO 250GB USB HD HBC 1.06 hermes ios 222 & 223 (ios222 using38-37 & ios 223 using 38-60) USB loader GX rev 75X (I can't recall the last digit on the revision) preloader .29 JODI Wanin's ios38 rev14 To be honest, I never tried to load a backup from DVD after the USB hard drive was originally installed. Well, recently I upgraded the firmware to 4.2 using Zector's safe firmware upgrade program. All went well with the update, I believe. I wanted to be able to play dvd backups as well as my USB backups, but was unable to. Reading about the disc channel, I saw posts explaining that the new System Menu has have ios70 trucha patched....so I went and used the "Modify any Wii 4.2 & below" sticky. I followed the tutorial as instructed, and I also used DOP-iosv8 to trucha ios70, but was unable to get the backups to load in the disc channel. I read that preloader might help...so I configured preloader to use ios70 for the SM, but got the corruption screen. I was able to use ios249 for the SM, but the disc would show and play in the disc channel, but the USB HD would power down. I checked the power saving feature and it's diabled when connected to my pc. If I use ios60 in preloader for the SM, the USB HD works as expected, but the disc channel does not. I've tried the other ios(es) but wasn't wable to get the disc channel and USB HD to live in harmony. Anyone have any ideas on how I can remedy this issue?
