Greetings all! I am in desperate hopes that someone can help me. I have a 4.1u sofmodded with Maui Frog's Softmod Any Wii guide. I recently re-softmodded it with all the latest updates. Also, I installed a brand new drive because I thought my issue was stemming from a bad drive/laser. Anyway, I am unable to play retail original games via the disc channel AND i cannot play backup games via neogamma! I receive the black read error screen. But, my console plays original retail dvd movies perfectly! I haven't tried a blu-ray movie. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening or what is causing this issue? Is it bad firmware? Does the laser read dvd movies differently than game discs? I greatly appreciate any help that is offered! Thank you.
