Not sure if this is the right forum, as it deals with both hacking, backup loaders, and hardware mods Anyway, I have a 1st generation PAL Wii that I got two days before launch. This Wii has been modded with a Wiikey (v1) which has been updated to the last firmware (1.9s). I used to be able to play both Wii and Gamecube backups without any problems, straight from the disc channel. Then the softmodding community took off and so I also softmodded my Wii. I've re-modded it with ModMii, and I am now on the very last system menu and every IOS and cIOS is updated to its latest version. USB Wii loading works fine with USB Loader GX. I tried to play a burnt Gamecube disc (DVD-R) through the disc channel, and all of a sudden this does not seem to work anymore. Haven't done it in like two years, but I felt the need for some F-Zero GX . When I insert the DVD-R, the Wii recognizes a Gamecube disc in the disc channel. When I click start the game should be launched, but instead the drive 'clicks' once (a reset) and for some reason the Wii also resets: I am presented with the Health & Safety warning and are then back in the Wii system menu. Which, again, shows that a Gamecube disc is inserted. I've spent today by installing a cMIOS (always had a 'official' MIOS) and eventually DML and Neogamma to load Gamecube games from SD-cards. This works... But it's quite a hassle. I can also start the Gamecube game from Neogamma (it resets the drive, then launches the game). For the record I tried to run a Gamecube backup through the disc channel again (hoping cMIOS might help in some way) but again the drive just 'clicks' and the Wii resets. So, Neogamma works, but I just want to insert my Gamecube backups from the Disc channel and go. I have no idea why this wouldn't work because it used to work perfectly (thanks to the Wiikey). Anyone have a clue?
