    Is it fathomable that since i installed cios36 rev9, and usb2.0beta 2, (IN THAT ORDER) that i may be getting completely random DRE 349 and in turn, usb loader giving random error -2 after opening DVD. should i run anytitledeleter, delete 36rev9, and reinstall it?

    my backups are touchy ever since i did this.....

    yes i put a game in the drive to rip it otherwise i would get NO DISC................................................,im not having a problem running games, the problem is USB loader is giving error -2 when tryin gto rip games. But if you mess with it enuff it will finally do it. Also games give DRE 349 in gamma until i fiddle with it enuff. the question is: Does overwriting cios36 with every revision since birth have anything to do with why my wii being fickle about reading games that read fine with rev8

    yes i put a disc in when i tried to rip it...........

    If your getting the error on launching, try ejecting the disc first... or is the error during ripping?

    ive been searching all day nobody seems to get error -2. all im seeing is not a valid wii disc, but im not getting that one. Ive heard of something messing up when trying to overwrite an ios and that possibly if i deleted ios36 and reinstalled it, that maybe it woulb be cleaner than going from rev3 overwritten all the way up to 9, maybe its just now screwing up bcuz ive never got dre349 untill i installed rev9

    unpatched 1:1 backups, and one retail game. but this wouldnt explain why sometimes thewy work sometimes they dont ONLY after a 36rev9 install,
    Again im askin if overwriting the cios36 multiple times cause any problems.

    Right Behind You! Uh Oh!
    a bug i found is that if you install a game with the IOS249 patch it can mess up OTHER games that USED to work [​IMG] so be careful installing patched or decrypted games they are not very good for the USB loader [​IMG] I use 1:1 PAL and NTSC games with NO FLAWS on my NTSC-U 3.2U console.. (I even played A PAL version of Rogue Squadron today from the 1.1 USB loader with no problems at all!) so avoid ios249 patched games they sometimes DO work but often for some reason can effect previously installed titles...

    BTW metroid prime 3 and red steel are problem titles as of 1.1 USB loader i have originals i installed that wont work!

    vettacossx have uheard anything about errors from overwriting an ios too many times, and if i were to take anytitledeleter and delete ios36 and reinstall 36rev9 would it have any adverse effects on me?
    I havent installed any backups at all yet because it gives error-2, buti know i do have some 249patched games but havent tried any. i think im just getting disc read errors and it seemed to all start after rev9

    It appears that if you delete a game from the WBFS partition and then install more, it can cause games to get corrupted randomly even though they worked before. Try reformatting your WBFS partition and reloading your games, and NEVER DELETE!
