    Ok, so I can't use the disc channel (or Gecko OS) to play my original Gamecube games. I have soft-modded my Wii.
    Here are my Wii mods (or what I used to mod my Wii):
    Preloader
    Starfall
    cIOS CORPS (before cIOS installer)
    cIOS installer
    mIOS installer (v8)
    IOS downgrader

    I just want to get my GC games to work through the disk channel, instead of going to the GC backup loader every time.

    Yeah, I am.
    All my games were store-bought.

    when installing the latest cMIOS, try v5. also try installing it so you can run them through the wii backup launcher as well (i think its x on the gc controller). i found that games seem to run better when used through that way instead of the gc backup launcher, for me anyways.

    If you have cioscorp installed and enabled gcn backup loading via the gamma launcher, it causes the disc channel to load the backup launcher screen with a disc read error before launching your legitimate game. At least that happens to me with WiiGator's patched MIOS from the latest gcn launcher release (0.2).

    yeah, that is normal. won't affect the game however. It will launch and play just fine.

    I've only used the ones from WiiGator. I'd try his latest one like I said.

    Well, I'm still having the same problem, it might be the preloader that's causing this.
