    Install the homebrew channel and WiiMC, I believe the new version of WiiMC can play DVD movies (but not back ups for some reason?) It can also play Divx movies and other file types off USB, I have not found any movies it will not play to be honest.

    Back ups of Wii games off the Wii DVD drive you will need either The Back up channel or Neogamma or Uloader. These are also loaded from the home brew channel on the Wii.

    I hope this helps a little [​IMG]

    Missing an IOS maybe? But you say back ups work from USB so probably not. (I am not expert and I only have my 2 launch Wii's that I used the tools on the net lol)

    A thought occurs to me, try unplugging the USB drive and putting your back up in the Wii then run Uloader (if your loading your apps from the SD slot of course.)

    Uloader should say something like "No USB drive detected switching to disk mode"
