    To protect myself from future problems i'm trying to get my repair disc to boot, but ive done everything as several guides said and still no luck.

    Story:
    Got a brand new UK wii, came with v3.3e preinstalled
    I downgraded via Anyregion Changer to 3.2e
    Installed custom IOS36 rev7 by Waninkoko, Installed custom IOS37 rev3 by Waninkoko
    Installed DVDx stup installer to IOS249

    Burned the Repair Disc .iso 1:1 at the lowest supported speed (4x) to a blank Memorex 16x DVD-R
    Videos on my Memorex 16x DVD-R's can be read by MPlayer perfectly, as if they were official but refuse to boot from loaders:

    - Disc channel - 'Unable to read the disc' (Obviously)
    - Menu patcher v1 (by Waninkoko) patched disc channel - 'Unable to read the disc'
    - SoftChip v0.0.1 pre-release r76 under IOS36 revision 1042 or IOS249 revision 2070 - 'loctl error (Dl_ReadUnencrypted)'
    - Backup launcher 0.3 Gamma by WiiGator (IOS249) - DVD read error (324)
    - GeckoOS - Can't remember exactly what it said but it didn't work either

    Any ideas?

    I think you need to install the gamma patch, IOS249, its only for v1 that you need the DVDx stub

    Doesn't do anything like that, search the wii backup disc, it saves a dump to SD of all saves, settings etc, gives users chance to change wiiID etc...it wont boot on fully bricked etc, it doesn't remove no channels nothing etc...

    Then why name it repair disc lol... Nintendo has some weird minds, oh well, basically a waste of a DVD-R disk if you decided to burn it...

    You do know that Waninkoko's cIOS's all install to slot 249 and that rev7 is the most current and rev3 is way outdated? Was cIOS rev3 the last thing you installed? Cause that cIOS doesn't have the DI commands.

    Wow this is a good forum, I didn't expeect to get a repsonce that quickly.

    To answer your questions:
    - The repair disc I was talking about is the 'Backup disc' that leaked from nintendo in the US.
    I called it 'repair disc' because if I said 'backup' the moderators might think it was a game backup.
    - And yes the disc is very limited in use but 'every little helps'.

    "I think you need to install the gamma patch, IOS249, its only for v1 that you need the DVDx stub "
    I did a google search and couldn't find the gamma patch, unless you mean the IOS249 actually is the patch.
    I believe I have Custom IOS36 rev7 by Waninkoko in the IOS249 slot.

    "You do know that Waninkoko's cIOS's all install to slot 249 and that rev7 is the most current and rev3 is way outdated?"
    I thought that because the IOS's that were patched (IOS36 and IOS37) were different you needed both.

    My action plan:
    1. Uninstall the custom IOS's and reinstall cIOS36
    2. I'm going to see if uninstalling the DVDx helps, but I'm guessing proberly not.

    Hopefully it'll work, if not I'll post the error messages here.

    That's why it's called the Wii Backup Disc, backing up all them hard earned saves you did on your wii etc....

    Back!

    Story:
    Used 'Custom IOS Uninstaller v1.1' to uninstall IOS249, reinstalled Custom IOS36 rev7
    Uninstalled DVDx then reinstalled using IOS slot 249.

    The results:
    - Backup launcher 0.3 Gamma by WiiGator (IOS249) - DVD read error (324)
    - Menu patcher v1 (by Waninkoko) patched disc channel - 'Unable to read the disc'
    - SoftChip v0.0.1 pre-release r76 under IOS249 revision 2070 - 'loctl error (Dl_ReadID)'

    It all mentions 'read', even thought the discs worked perfectly in MPlayer so heres more DVD details if it helps:
    The DVDs: http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/6362893/Memo...ox/Product.html
    The underside of the discs have a purplish colour like these discs have: http://shop.cd-writer.com/catalog/images/p...sddvd_rss16.jpg

    My Wii came with v3.3e preinstalled, did Nintendo sneak any patches in that a Wii updated to v3.3e might not have?

    man what you doin to that poor thing..lol

    start from scratch and follow one of the guides around here, i recommend either any of the following...

    Big Moe's
    DJ Taz's
    Emporer Of Canada

    any of these packs will leave you with a nice finshed setup.

    "start from scratch and follow one of the guides around here"

    I'd heard of Big Moes so I tried that, but.....:

    The results:
    - Backup launcher 0.3 Gamma by WiiGator (IOS249) - DVD read error (324)
    - Menu patcher v1 (by Waninkoko) patched disc channel - 'Unable to read the disc'
    - SoftChip v0.0.1 pre-release r76 under IOS249 revision 2070 - 'loctl error (Dl_ReadID)'

    Any other ideas? I'm sure it's a software thing, the discs can be read by Mplayer that should suggest that loaders are capable...?
