    Hey there, I was hoping maybe I could get an answer here...

    So, ever since I soft-modded my Wii back in... like 2008, My Super Smash Bros. Brawl disc will not spin in the disc tray. Brawl is the ONLY game that does this. All the others spin and eventually either say it can't read it, or load the game. When I put Brawl in, I can hear the machine start up, but it just like, cuts it off, and it stops spinning.

    I did find a way around this, using Gecko OS. Every time I select launch game, it forces the disc in the tray to spin. For some reason, after about (And it HEAVILY varies) 15 times (Longest I've counted was 47) of selecting launch game, the game will finally launch. Now, obviously this isn't practical, because, well, I'm probably screwing up my disc tray, and, two, because Gecko will freeze after about 9 times after launching the game.

    I don't THINK it's the disc, because I have tried about 3 other discs that my friends were gracious enough to let me borrow theirs.

    If I could get any kind of information on this, I would be forever grateful and appreciative. Thanks a bunch.

    Rip the game to a hard drive. The program is called Configurable USB Loader.

    It sounds like your Wii is struggling with discs (dual-layer discs in particular). You might try cleaning the laser. I would also look into USB loading as the_randomizer mentioned.

    My USB version of SSBB also freezes at random points in the game in CFG. Ripped from a clean disc, maybe my settings are wrong for the IOS? Any help is appreciated. :S

    Make sure you're using the latest d2x cIOS from ModMii and make sure you're using the latest version of CFG USB Loader MOD. If you still have problems, then it's likely a bad rip.

    Sounds like a dual layer disc problem. My launch Wii hasn't been able to read dual layer discs since 2008.

    Ah, okay. Thanks for all the help, guys. I really appreciate it.
    I'll try the CFG method. Thanks again!
