    Hey guys I know it's probably s total noob question, but I am having loads of trouble installing DVDx on my 4.2u Wii. I downloaded the DVDx installer 4.3 from the Homebrew Browser, and I always get an error installing the stub thingy in the program. I'm not really sure how to even begin on this project. I want to play DVDs on my Wii because it would be much more convenient than having to lug around a DVD player. What do I need to do to get this working? Help is appreciated.

    check to see if your wii can run disk, an check the numbers on the bottom, for sure lu64's will not run dvd's no matter how hard you try. you can always do what i did. i have all my movies backed up to my harddrive, an i use wiimc.

    Dont install DVDx. HW_AHBPROT flag in meta.xml replaced that. You need the HBC 1.0.7+ to use it.
    to read DVDs also you need a white wii that is old

    An older version of DVDX (not one that came with the hackmii installer) is needed for some older apps like ftpii and MiiKorean.

    If they do the checks properly, AHBPROT enables exactly the same hardware access as DVDX and should work. You just have to add the no_ios_reload tag to the meta.xml...

    that is if he has the right kind of cd drive, d3-2 i think is the ones that don't play dvd's no matter what , he'll have to switch out the drive, if he can find one, or do as i suggested an just use a usb harddrive/stick. an wiimc. using a usb drive is a lot easier, then doing it the hard way.

    Okay so I don't have an LU 64 Wii. I have an LU 51. WHat the heck is APBROT? What does it even do? I'm really confused now. I need an older DVDx installer? Reading DVDs is much easier than ripping them to a hardrive. I installed that IOS 249 thing I was linked to at Mediafire but DVDs won't play in WiiMC or Mplayer CE.

    Oh and oh yeah. I now no longer have USB2.0 support in WiiXplorer.

    you'll have to have ios 202 to play dvd's on wiimc if possiable. not 249.. if you could post your sys check.. it would help. an have you ran modmii before.. this could help you be less confused.

    WiiMC doesn't support 202 anymore. Instead it uses IOS58, even though it sucks compared to 202.

    Try setting WiiXplorer to boot with IOS202. I think it's at 58 by default, which sucks. I wish IOS58 had never been discovered.

    well then i guess your only option at this point is to use a dvd player or you can download to usb harddrive, as far as apbrot for wii x. re install it this will give it that function back. but if none of the media players are letting you use dvd's then this is the only option you have. or try installing 202 into 58.. see if this would work. use modmii to do it. in custom settings.. also i see 249 is still a stub, also try there to, get dx2 at 56

    Is IOS 249 used for anything? Should I put an IOS 202 in there? You're talking CIOS right? Because I heard that's what WiiXplorer uses.

    What did you mean by "dx2 at 56"?

    Also installing IOS 202 into the 58 slot...wouldn't that break USB 2.0 in other apps? Like WiiMC? And the Homebrew Channnel loads on IOS 58 I believe.

    Maybe I should delete my WiiXplorer config?

    249 dx2 at 56, is used for all the usbloaders if using one of those, or you can use, 223-250 it's just strange to still see a stub in 249. modmii has herme's 202 sitting at 57 .(not 202 (60). you could try that one, an see what happens. it's a v5.. as far as wiixplorer i don't use it so not sure if that would have the desired effect. i would just re download. an if it still didn't work as desired delete it. but thats me.. an me just being me, i would run modmii an update just to make sure everything is kosher. just goto the wizard an tell the program, your at 4.2 an want to stay there, an your wii is virgin. copy the wads to your wad manager.

    First, here's an old thread of mine about DVDx and the quirks involved installing it now, it should help you re-install DVDx.

    Second, don't install cIOS202 as IOS58! WiiXplorer still allows the use of Herme's cIOS202 for USB access instead of the stock Nintendo IOS58. You can read about the particulars over on the WiiXplorer website. Also on the WiiXplorer website is a great installer for Herme's cIOS202 which installs it as IOS202. As for cIOS249, most commonly a Waninkoko cIOS, or the modded D2X cIOS, WiiXplorer does not use them; they are used by select utilities like WAD installers and backup/USB loaders.

    I tried it. This isn't going anywhere...

    I think I'll just get USB 2.0 back in WiiXplorer.
