Well, it is like this: I got myself a hacked wii. It is supposed to play wii and gc backups. I've been given a burnt zelda:tp which works alright. To side note: I have no idea how it was burnt (device, media, software, anything), but it does work. I do not know what has been done to it prior to myself buying it, whether it is chipped or not, for example. My problem is that I can't burn a playable gamecube disc. I've used ImgBurn and CloneCD (it worked best for my PS2) a TSST and an Optiarc devices, burnt to a dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd-rw (+r,-r are indian made Verbatim) at 1x, 2x, 2.4x, 4x. The game I'm trying to burn is Tales of Symphonia CD1. Here is what i know about my console: current firmware 4.0E Initially there were Homebrew channel 1.0.3 and a Neogamma r7 Wiihack while trying to update a homebrew channel does NOT install. As far as I know that means there is a cIOScorp installed but I'm not sure Since I wanted the games to load from a HDD I've installed: IOS236 IOS249 Hermes 222/223 Configurable USB loader I don't know whether it was necessary or not, though, but now I can play Muramasa from a USB-flashcard and I'm totally OK with that. I know you can't do the same trick with a GC game so you have to burn it (don't tell me about the SD-adapter, I don't have it) And here I'm completelly stuck: the best I could do is to get is to get Neogamma to recognise the game but after that it flashes with a green screen and I get a hard reset wich is unfortunate since I got myself a wii mostly to play GC games. Also I'd like to know, if there is a way to find out what exactly is installed/modified on the console, like whether there is a chip or not, what IOS are hacked etc. Thanks in advance for any help! P.S. the TOS iso is most likely fine since I've managed to launch it through Dolphin... at a verrrry slow speed though. MAJOR UPDATE: Installed cIOS37 & 38 r19 Installed cMIOSWiiGator Installed latest Neogamma as a homebrew NOTHING CHANGED, still get a green screen flashing Well, tomorrow I'll go get a tested sample burnt GC game to see if it works for me and if it does, then I'm doing something wrong. Still, any suggestions about what else can be wrong are welcome and thaks for your answers, everybody! UPDATE: Burnt a dvd-r copy of red steel 2 on TSSTcorp drive, doesn't launch through Disk Channel, but does run via Neogamma. There is a major intro slowdown on 4x-written medium and a slight to no slowdown on 1-x written one. Will try a dvd+r and a different drive, but unless Wii switches to a different laser for GC-mode the drives and media I'm using are fine. Also, I've only used 8cm discs for burning thus far since I don't have any small ones to try, nothing ever mentions this to be an issue, but still... With everything listed above installed, is there anything I can lack? I wonder... UPDATE It was unable to read a tested sample of a GC game, so it's like that: It does understand dvd-r burnt wii games It does understand usb-hdd wbfs wii games It doesn't understand burnt dvd-r GC games It doesn't understand DVD-RW at all (says something like a reading error) So, WTF can this be, anybody?
