    recently my media player stuff stopped working on my wii

    i have a bootmii backup but am curious what it overwrites

    basically wondering if i use restoremii with my backup does it fully make my wii as it was on the date of the backup or are only some things changed?

    try reinstalling the Media Player, bootmii isn't worth the risk. there is a small chance you could brick your wii

    It will change your wii too the state it was at when you backed it up. If your wii still functions then
    you shouldn't restore. Install cIOS202 along with Wiimc.

    basically, i lost my dvd playback sometime in the past month i noticed it a few days ago when i installed ios 202 but after uninstalling it it still didnt work (basically the menu's run really quickly and in many movies the sound is inaudible aka either really fast and high pitched or really slow and low pitch)

    have any of you heard of this?

    so if I made a bootmii backup now I could go back to my old one to check if DVDs work ruli g out if it is software or hardware then comeback to my new backup then right?

    alright, I'll give it a shot when I get home and report back

    EDIT: so i tried and it still didnt work, so you guys think my laser is dying?
    how is that possible the console is only like 3 years old
    my dreamcast's laser just died 3 months ago!
