Hello,

I have had this problem for about a year and I thought I'd try to fix it.

My Wii U/vWii decides not to read any Wii games in their system menus. BUT, homebrew apps like Wiiflow read and rip the disk just fine. I have no idea why this happens.

Wii U games work normally, its just Wii games. The picture below is the error code I get in the Wii U System menu when I try to load a Wii disk. It spits out a region error but my CFW should bypass region locking. If I try in the vWii syestem menu I get an Invalid Disk error.

My console has CBHC 1.6 installed. About a year and a half ago I bricked my vWii and fixed it by replacing the slccmpt01 folder from a doner Wii U. I am POSITIVE Wii games booted before AND AFTER I put a CFW on it.

If anyone could help out I would really appreciate it!

Thank you so much,

mbucc9000

I know this won't fix your issue, but I recommend just ripping the disk to a USB using USB loader GX. It will save wear and tear on your disk drive and have faster loading times.

That's exactly what I did with all my Wii games lol. But I really want to play ctgp-r... I know there are alternative mods that can be turned into a .iso but I just don't think they are as good.

I know what you mean, I want to play ctgp-r but my disk drive is dead. Hmmm, give me a minute to think about this.
Thank you... Do you think if I replaced the slccmpt01 folder again something would change? I already tried a factory reset and that didn't do it either.

Oh, i didn't catch that when i read you post. Do you know if the slccmpt01 folder was from the same region wii u as yours? Using a different regions slccmpt01 folder have messed up your vwii's ability to read games. You could try replacing the slccmpt01 folder again with one from the same region. Are you NTSC USA? If you are i could give you mine.
