    I recently installed USB Loader GX with a view to installing all my games on HDD. I started with COD3 and that was slow, but seemed to work OK. Since then, when I put a disc in the Wii, GX recognises the presence of a disc, but says it's not a valid Wii disc.
    The Wii itself has no problem with the discs I put in, so I thought it might be a glitch with the program. I installed Cfg USB Loader and exactly the same thing, except neither will now recognise COD3 either.
    Any ideas why the Wii's quite happy to run the discs but the USB loaders think the discs are invalid?

    Do you want to play them? If you want to install them you can only use retails. If you want to install backups you can use wii backup manager.

    I was hoping to have a central repository for all my games - i.e. on one HDD, so the idea was to port all the DVDs across to the HDD and run them all from there rather than keep swapping discs over.
    These are all originals, nothing copied, so I really don't understand...

    Which IOS are you using? The best combination you can try is cIOS249 v17 and configurable usb loader.

    Just checked the system and in configurable USB loader (v62) it says I'm running 249v17...

    My lad tells me there's a Wasabi chip in the console - would that make a difference?

    No joy unfortunately - my hdd is dual partitioned into NTFS and WBFS. CleanRip won't recognise either

    Man, you got me hungry for wasabi. :/

    you could always download the ISOs of the internet, it's pretty much legal as long as you own the original copy. alternatively, you could use a friends wii, and install HBC and use your games to rip to your HDD

    easiest would be to disable the modchip (temporary if needed) imho

    Just had a look through the config options for the Wasabi, doesn't appear to be any to 'hide' or disable it so I guess I'm pretty much out of options....

    Thanks anyway everyone

    The idea of downloading the iso from the internet seems like the best idea mentioned in this thread so far. It doesn't help you find the cause, but it sure is a solution. And it might be legal too, because you own the original.
