    VC means virtual console games

    ret=-1 for DvD backup means Specific cIOS Missing solution Install the required cIOS! For your HomeBrew App!(backup loader)

    Your original information is not exactly informative. Is this your first time running backup games? Do you have a cIOS of any revision installed? Do you know what one is?

    Great now you're being a jackass. *rolls eyes* ppl aren't patient enough


    This usually means that your USB device is not being recognized, usually because its incompatible with Wad Manager.

    You are being rightly ignored because still you are providing insufficient information. You were asked which loader and you replied Wad Manager 1.5!
    Kindly explain exactly what you are trying to do for example you mention installing a wad - which wad exactly and where are you trying to run Wad Manager 1.5 from?
    Give a step by step of what you have installed in terms of soft modding your Wii - if you don't know then we cant help you!

    heh heh woops sorry as you can see im kinda new to this ill start from the beginning......

    i have a 3.2U wii with wads already installed on it cause i installed them idk what you mean by loader b/c im using an sd card (if your talking about usb) anyway i downdraded using cios downgrader b/c i wanted to get to a point where i didnt have as many steps (you kno to make it easier on me cause im kinda slow) i have followed every guide so far and have used just about every app there is and i still get the same error message..... ret -1
    i noticed i only get this message when i install ios249 is there a component thats supposed to go with it or something? and when i uninstall it i get error message -4011 or something like that so i figured im screwed b/c i cant get it to work regardless

    is that enough info b/c i could give you more but i think thats all the basics and my hands are getting tired

    btw what do you mean when you say loader cause i have no idea what that means
