    I am having some very frustrating problems with my Wii right now.

    A while back, after hacking my Wii, I started using backup discs. One day, I suddenly discovered that some of my favorite games have stopped working on the backup loaders. I had made no changes to the system, it just suddenly started giving me errors. So, I then tried to reinstall the various cIOS, and things, and used several things to get my discs to load properly again. It worked great for a while, then randomly, it happened again. This time, I have tried to fix it with a variety of cIOS, and programs, all in vain. As it stands, some of my games will boot, and then give a disc read error while the game is loading, and some will just plain show a black screen, then the disc read error.

    I have tried just about everything, and I really need a fix. I have a party planned on Friday, where we all want to play some video games, and I would like to play some Goldeneye.

    I just want my games to work. My non-backups seem to work fine.

    Any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

    I've never tried loading backups from discs before so the only adivce i can give you is to try out USB Loading from a HDD. With modmii its a walk in the park as long as your follow the instructions and don't skip any steps.

    As much as I would like to use a HDD, I can not afford one at this time. So this is not really a solution for me. V_V

    Either way, you should run syscheck thru HBB and post your report and maybe someone with more experience in this field and help you out. Also what loader and its version you are using.

    What is syscheck and HBB?

    I have tried using Neogamma, softchip, Gecko, and Uloader, all with no results. Neogamma and Softchip used to work great, until it randomly quit on me... Twice...

    syscheck is a way to find out what IOS and cIOS you have installed on your wii (first link on google). Run it, and it'll install a small .csv file on your SD card. Please copy-paste it here so we have a clue what cIOS you actually HAVE on your wii. HBB is most likely a misspelled HBC (Homebrew Channel).

    Though if you use neogamma, only the cIOS in 249 really matters. Assuming you've got the latest version, it should say it in the bottom. In the ideal case, it should say "neogamma version R9 beta 47, cIOS249 with a base IOS of 56" (or something in those lines).

    uLoader works with Hermes's cIOS. Despite the fact that the interface is butt-ugly, the loader itself is quite decent. If you have the latest version (5.1E, IIRC) and you installed the included cIOS correctly, then it should work. And keep working.

    But to be honest, I doubt the problem is with the softmod. Games that black screen when starting may need another cIOS (uloader gives you the choice between 222, 223 and 224...for 249 you'll need neogamma), but the ones that start and then freeze somewhere...that isn't good at all. Especially if they used to work fine. The most likely chance is that your drive lens is starting to fail. Perhaps reburning a DVD will help, but I wouldn't trust that either (it probably won't take long before retail discs will start to fail as well).

    Sorry for your planned party, but I don't think it's wise to rely on backup discs to brighten it up right now (the chances of things going wrong increase with the amount of bystanders you have [​IMG] ).

    HBB is Homebrew Browser, an app that you can launch from your HBC. From it you can download other apps/emulators/utilitys straight to your SD card without any extra work. Heres a link HBB

    I'd say either bad burns, your drive is dying, your burns are decreasing in quality OR your drive is dying because of your bad burns. What media did you burn your games on?

    The problem with all of these hypothosis is that before, it would read fine, then it stopped. Then I reinstalled the stuff, and it worked fine for a while again... Doesn't sound like bad media, or disc drive to me.

    Also, I use Phillips DVD-R. They work really well for me. Out of the 3 I have tried, memorex, sony and Phillips, they work the best. I'll do the system check thing here in a bit.
