Ok firstly i am a full noob (yes i know this is my issue and i shouldn't have dicked about with it) So i have a wii with a modchip & homebrew channel. Being bit fed up of tons of dics so i decided to try an old hard drive (on compatibility list) with usb loader gx. so installed it on 250 but the usb loader froze on initialize usb device. i uninstalled the wad and tried on 249 but again is froze. i did a bit of reading and the consensus seem to be i needed to update to d2x-cios-installer on 249 as 249 seemed not to be able to be updated but moved to this d2x. so thats what i did, or at least i think i did.......... using the online install guide form (http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-guides-tutorials/88654-d2x-cios-installation-guide.html) again i tried usb loader but it still froze. So i gave up thinking its more than likely that on HDD isn't compatible after all. and this is where my issues started! Now my wii will not recognise any disc, wii genuine, wii backup or came cube genuine. i have run sys check (http://syscheck.softwii.de/FDcHh3Lt) and then pimp my wii that gave no errors but updated several ios including 249 but that has not resolved it and the wii will still not recognise any disc's. Any idea how i can find out whats wrong and fix it please. REMEMBER i am 100% noob so please use clear instructions if possible. Thank you.
