Does it load the disc with USB loaders, but not with Disc channel? If so, It could be caused by console/sysmenu region mismatch. check if your console has region changed before.

If it just doesn't load, well It's time to replace your drive. Wii is very old so It is very reasonable to happen, and you can find them easily at either ebay or aliexpress. You can also get a broken wii with working drive and swap it, and keep another parts as a spare.

USB not getting recognized seems like your drive's problem- Does it happen with every drives you try? Did you try to use a new cable, If you're using HDD? If it always yields a same result, You could try to replace onboard USB ports.

Seems like your Wii has some problems, possibly caused by softmodded in a wrong way. Did you buy a used, pre-modded one?

You can install BootMii on IOS. Run the HackMii installer, install BootMii on IOS, boot to it and restore your nand.
Ensure that the NAND Dump is from your Wii, not others.

Yeah but The case is My Boot2 is v4 bootmii as Boot2 is not installable. Bootmii doesnt allows restoring The nand if is booted as an Ios.

Aah, right, you need GC controller to do that...

Well there's not really much you could do. at least off-brand GC controllers aren't that expensive(besides being absolute trash for gaming), You can grab one. It is also useful when you have to access Recovery Mode, so I recommend it.

Nice!

If I remember correctly, It will prompt you "It is too dangerous to proceed this in IOS BootMii. If you're really sure that you wish to continue, enter Konami Code." Or some sort. Basically all you have to do is to plug in your GC controller in port 1, and enter Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start. This is a well-known konami code, and putting this will start nand restore on your IOS installed BootMii.

Yeah. I thought so too. even though applying MAND backup is considered very safe thing, there's always a chance where it could go wrong.

But then again, Region changing and tampering with IOSes are way much danger. Simple mistake could straight lead your system to full brick or worse, and since Your Boot2 is not vulnerable it won't be easy to recover it. So if you don't know what you're doing, I really don't recommend it, unless you're proceeding with experts.

You could just carry one and use your Wii. since It still can boot games and there are no symptoms of bricks, It is fine.

But if you want to fix it, It's time to get help from other expertises. Run SysCheck on your Wii and post the results here.
