    Hi there. I have a 4.3U Wii. It is fully homebrewed and is a white model.

    Today I decided to rebuy a game I lost a long time ago. I got Disney's Epic Mickey (used). Odd thing is, I put in the disc, and it says that my console needs to update in order to play this game. I didn't update my Wii and instead shut it off. I'm afraid someone wrote content to the disc that could mess up my Wii.

    Now, I know that a virus for the Wii is a little far-fetched, but hey, you never know.

    This doesn't happen to any other game disc I put in.

    So... what do I do? Should I accept the update? Is there a chance that I just don't have a compatible c/IOS, and it needs to get one, or is it really something harmful to my Wii?

    The only way to avoid the update at this point is to power off the system.

    Well if it really worries you that much, just get a backup loader and install epic mickey. You have a physical copy of the game so it is ok to have a digital backup of it.

    Hey! No Worries HeroicGamer i have been in the same situation before
    so lets says you got Cios and usb loader and other homebrew things
    basiclly what the system update does is that it deletes those cios so you will have to reinstall them
    So Basically
    system update = Deletes CIOs = BADD

    hope this helped sorry for bad use of words :)

    Just either dump it or download it. Whatever floats your boat and then use your favorite loader. I prefer either USB Loader or WiiFlow.

    Alright, thank you all! I'm glad it was nothing too dangerous, I just wanted to be sure. c:

    Although, you all have been saying to play it on a USB loader such as USB Loader GX or WiiFlow. I have both of those loaders, and they work very well. I think buying the game twice is enough to let me keep a digital copy of it. Thanks again!

    My Wii asks me to update too all the time.
    It's in the old old old 4.3U
    So... :creep:
    No worries.


    Actually, if I choose: "Update" it appears the update bar, it fills up to the end, it resets my Wii, and everything's still the same.
    Still won't let me play physical Wii Gams through the Disc Channel though. :unsure:
