    hi i haven been trying to get one of my old dead wii (dead DVD drive and settings corrupted) to work with usb loader gx

    i know this is a pretty broad problem but i have been trying for 2 days here with no love

    firstly it was a launch wii on 3.3u

    i used punch out to update to 3.4u to restore the system menu/settings menu
    i used bannerbomb to install bootmii/HBC
    i used trucha bug restorer on IOS15/36
    i then installed cIOS rev14
    lastly i updated to 4.0 using waninkokos updater
    i installed the USB loader GX through WAD manager 1.3

    so basically i am at the stage right now where GX loads, can see the games on HDD and will load but i ALWAYS get an 'error has occurred' message or black screen on every game iso and every wiiware

    ANY help would be greatly appreciated since i am basically ready to give up and order a replacement DVD drive for this wii

    THANKS!

    do you have bootmii or preloader installed? a NAND backup?

    does the dvd drive make any sound? or is it completely dead?

    thanks for a fast reply!

    yes bootmii is installed as boot2
    no NAND backup

    DVD drive totally dead and in fact no longer inside the wii at all
