    Well ...
    i just softmodded a friends wii

    1. i placed twilight hack on his 3.1 wii (the same i used for my 3.2 wii)
    2. run zelda and installed homebrew channel
    3. installed cIOS and than WiiGator GammA

    well now the problem only half of the games work -.- while on my wii they all work ... allways disc read errors

    did i do something wrong ? i cannot remember doing anything else with my and my cousins wii.


    do the wii's have different drives which some better/worse at reading discs ?
    or does it have something to do that he has 3.1 and i 3.2 ?
    should i update his wii to 3.2 ?

    Id say that the issue is the wii dvd drive. Some wii drives are very picky with media types and quality, where others seem able to read anything you throw at them. Try using a different type of media with his wii and see if that fixes things. I've noticed on my wii, that waninkoko's Cios Rev7 better reads backups than wiigators, even though the backup loading code is supposed to be the same.

    Get dvdinfopro and do a pi/po scan. If you get 90% or better, it's really not the media's fault.
