Hi All A friend of mine just bought a Wii and asked me if I could hack it for him. I hacked alot of Wii's in the past using guides on this forum. It was obvious this Wii had been messed around with before. It has a SD card slot mounted on the side of the Wii... I don't know why. I followed all the steps in this guide: https://gbatemp.net/threads/beginne...g-wiiware-vc-vackups-gamecube-backups.400975/ Everything went fine. Until i wanted to boot up a game from my HDD. The screen turns black and if i wait long enough an error appears: "An error has occurred. Press the eject button and remove the disc..." I've been searching for a while now, but i have no clue what I did wrong. I connected the Wii to the internet and used d2x cIOS to install the cIOS'es mentioned on this page: https://sites.google.com/site/completesg/backup-launchers/installation I noticed on the grid with installed cIOS'es the 222/223 were coloured. Does that mean a Hermes soft mod was installed? I have no clue. I have a Wii myself but barely touch it. I've tried multiple things: - Several USB loaders (confg. usb loader, usb loader gx,...) - Changing the IOS for the games to 249/250 even tried 222/223 Results are all the same... I really hope someone can help me out. My SysCheck results: Region: PAL System Menu 4.3E (v514) Priiloader installed Could not detect the drive date!

Can i use a defective DVD drive when using an USB loader? Thanks in advance!
