    what kind of games are you playing?
    original games? back up DVDs loaded with which loader? ISOs from an USB HDD, what kind of HDD and which loader?
    and also, which cIOS revision do you have installed?

    it sounds to me as if you're having trouble with bad burns - eg. you burned an ISO file to a disc, but your wii has a hard time reading the disc in the little time it has to load your game at half the speed (compared to the normal disc channel)... I used to have this problem with 2 or 3 games, untill I just switched to an USB loader [​IMG]
