    Hi folks,

    I'm a bit of a noob here, but I think I've managed the softmod process - however...

    When I try to load a backup game, I get the Disk Err (1178) error message.

    I've checked my wii's s/n, and found that it doesn't have the d3-2 chipset.

    I've got the homebrew channel working, installed cIos etc, but just can't seem to get a game to load.

    Another point - don't know about the relevance of this - but I've not been able to load an additional channel yet - using a wad file.

    Finally - when I try to boot stuff through boot mii, it tells me that it 'failed to boot the selected file'

    Can anyone offer any assistance?

    Thanks a lot.

    Make sure you follow this guide. Try installing Priiloader along with the hacks.ini on the root of the sd card. Enable BLOCK DISC UPDATES. Then install Darkcorp to play burned games from disc channel. If it shows a question mark when you put the game in after darkcorp is installed, then you have a d3-2 drive.
