Ok, just as the title says, I can't play any games throught backup launchers.

I just followed the "Modify any Wii 4.2 & below" guide and everything went perfect (after removing all traces of cioscorp 3.3)

I am currently on 4.2U and I've tried neogamma R7 and R8 betas.....all with the same results.

I burned the games at the slowest speed and increased each time to the fastest speed.....none work (verbatim discs)

I've tried other loaders like softchip too but still, disc could not be read....


Any suggestions? Are there other cios' that I need to install? I knew I should've stuck to my 360 and not even screwed with the dang wii...GRRR! All these headaches because my wife wants to play "Press Your Luck" on the damn thing! FML!

If you have a newer wii, they are incapable of playing backup discs due to a new disc drive that is being used. However, usb loading still works on these wiis.

your wii most likely has a new d3-2 chipset, which basically means u can't play backups, here's a vid with more info if u want (but as mentioned above, usb loaders still work, and they're way better anyways)

this is on a korean wii, but the chipset will have the same restrictions regardless of region

Oh well, I guess I'll have to format one of my drives and just use a USB loader...
