    Try to launch anything with this:
    new version:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?hxw2lhmtkom

    old version:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?nhm2itmdnzn

    And post the following:
    Your cIOS(botton right of the screen)
    If you already know if your drives accepts backups or not
    the 3 values



    I hope these 3 values allow to identify the "bad" drives so people don't need to burn 100 discs trying to figure this one out in future.


    "Good" numbers:
    0 2 537265446 (=0x20060526, Launch day Wii)
    0 2 537266439 (=0x20060907)
    0 2 537330195 (=0x20070213, D2C or D2C2?)

    "Bad" numbers:
    Need confirmation: 0 2 537397012 (=20080714)

    "My drive is a D2C(2?) drive." - And that means?

    It's either a D2C or D2C2 drive... Can't really tell the difference (not that it matters much nowadays), though I believe it is D2C2.

    Bottom line: It can handle disc backups.

    The 3rd value seems to be indeed some date, see translated to hex values. Now if i knew the earliest value for drives that can't read backups, i could add this info to NeoGamma + i could write a program that checks this and does not require a cIOS.

    If you are on 4.2, you have to delete the stub 1st and/or install a cIOS. I think there are enough other people out there who can post the info. I guess you already know your wii won't read backup discs. Check back here when you have a cIOS(for usb loading) or the test program is finished.

    Seem? I need real info.

    If you don't have a cIOS, then it has a reason why no backups work. There are enough guides here that explain well enough how to get a cIOS and everything running.
