I need some help with my wii :S
it's been running original and backup discs all this time
and now it only reads original discs
whenever I boot a backup disc it says disc not found, try eject clean and put the disc again
I had Dios Mios installed a while ago does that have any impact?

Please help.

It could be the lens is dusty or possibly the laser assembly isn't focusing as well anymore or may be burning out.

I was going to post the same thing after reading the OP.

On the bright side USB loading on the Wii is really really good. If the disk drive dies or no longer reads backups, at least you can buy a smallish external hard drive for less than 50 bucks and just stuff a bunch of games on it and enjoy one of those fancy loaders. The down side to that is I hear GameCube loading from USB isn't that great? Or maybe I am remembering wrong from years ago and it has changed? I emulate GameCube these days as Dolphin is fantastic and looks gorgeous on a 1080P screen with filters and stuff.

Yeah I think I'll move on to load from USB :(
I have used the Wii Leans Cleanning Kit but it didn't help much, I can't even read original SSBB

The d2x-v10beta53-alt-vWii.wad enables you to play backups from disc. Your wii will only either play from external sources or from backup discs. You can't do both. You probably installed DiosMios wad or something over it and need to reinstall

Yeah I've been playing games from HDD or from discs I've had before setting up USB Loader GX.
I really think it's something done with the DIOS MIOS installation :S

BTW I used to be able to run backup discs from disc channel.

Beta53 isn't really a good idea to use. It has compatibility issues with some NAND and disc titles.
