My wii is a model # RVL-001 white wii with all the GC ports running system version 4.3u. The SD card which has my apps/homebrew & roms on it is a Kodak 2GB SD card (not SDHC.) The USB thumbdrive that has the wbfs wii backup I was trying to play today at my friend's house is a 8GB Sandisk Cruzer model SDCZ36E-008G. I can also tell you that when bootmii was doing the system scan it does when backing up the NAND, it only found maybe 5 bad sectors. I recently installed the homebrew channel, bootmii, & priiloader, all newest versions as far as I can tell. I followed the tutorial on this site and everything seems to be ok, I installed a couple VC wads and some other homebrews. After playing Snes9xGX or another game for a while the wii COMPLETELY shuts off, the LED on the front isn't lit up at all, 100% DEAD. After unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in the wii can turn back on and everything is fine. (The first time I thought my wii might have bricked, but I guess it's not.) This has happened a number of times at this point. If I leave my wii alone with the red LED lit (connect24 is OFF) it has yet to go dead. It only goes dead after I've played a game for a while. If I unplug the powercord and reconnect it to the Wii and try to play a game again right away it will go dead a bit quicker. However, if I just leave the wii alone for a while it will be fine later and stay on alot longer. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?
