    My Wii is hard-modded (you know, mod-chip, drive-chip however its called)
    and soft-modded (you know, banner bomb, HBC, wads, cIOS, IOS...).

    i did latest soft-mod 2 days ago using ModMii tool for PC etc...
    Before that i had old mods installed on my Wii, it has problems because mods are outdated, but it worked normally, and Discs COULD be read when i put them in disc drive (say GameCube games, Wii games..but i have external HDD so i usually use drive for GameCube games) but now, after i hacked my Wii all over with new things, when i put any DVD in it (except original...duh!) it said:

    -Well for Wii discs it said something like "ERROR 001, unauthorized device has been detected" etc... and i need to power off Wii by holding power button for 7-10 sec. (complete freeze)

    -And as for GameCube discs, it loads the game credits, few sec. and than it said something like ""Please insert a Nintendo GameCube disc" ..or close the lid..idk, i cant remember, but the point is i cant run games from discs anymore..
    i can install them via USB loader GX to external HDD directly from Wii (not via PC) if that info is useful.

    Also, i don't know what Mod-Chip i got inside of Wii, but the guy i bought it from said its some cheapest, but it do the job (well not now! ...i really hope i can do something my self without bringing my Wii to a service)



    So i appreciate if you guys can help me, please :)

    I figured newer software (games and/or official IOSs) were detecting the modchip. I was PMing him and from the sounds of it he's running an older cheap modchip that he knows little about as he didn't install it. I've dealt with only a couple of Wii modchips, so I couldn't help him.

    Yes that, hatks for understanding. @atkfromabove its not laser because it was working fine and it still is if you read my post where i said that GC games load but that at some point it sait to close the lid, but Wii games go error 001... i must open up my wii and see what modchip i got and if someone has solution untill i open it up please, post here. :)

    Well, the laser could be going bad, it's not uncommon with Wiis. Still, if you can still dump your discs just fine with USB Loader GX, then that gives you a work around and some confidence the laser is still fine.

    the laser IS fine, and i think i wrote that up there saying that i can dump games from wii to external HDD.
    Also the laser is almost unused, its like new.

    I am now going to open up my wii to find mod chip model

    I had the same thing happen to my wii. I thought it wasn't the laser either but I replaced it and it fixed the problem. You could try to load up MIOS v4 that has helped some people with their game disc errors.
