OK, I'm going to simply detail everything I've ever done to my Wii in the hopes that it will give those of you with actual knowledge of this stuff a better understanding of what my problem might be. The first time I actually put anything on my Wii was awhile ago. My Wii was 4.0U and I used the popular youtube video tutorial (idk what it was called, it was a black guy with kinda big ears, not sure this is relevant but i want to give as much info as possible). After following his tutorial, I had Homebrew Channel and Backup Launcher channel installed. I then installed a cIOS, i want to say it was r17 but I honestly cannot be sure of that. i then later used various computer programs and my guitar hero 3 iso to create a guitar hero 3 iso with custom songs in it. i then burnt this iso to a Sony DVD-R with ImgBurn and was able to play my custom disc using Backup Launcher with no issues whatsoever. Fast forward a few months when Black Ops Wii comes out. I buy it and put it in my Wii, only to find that it says I must perform a Wii update in order to play this game. Stupidly not thinking that there would be a Homebrew workaround to this, I uninstalled Homebrew and Backup Launcher (possibly incompletely) and updated my Wii to 4.3U and played Black Ops for a few months. Sometime after that, I once again decided that I wanted Homebrew on my Wii, so I looked into how this could be done on 4.3U. I eventually ended up using Smash Stack, which successfully installed Homebrew Channel on my Wii. I then noticed, however, that for whatever reason, my Wii would not start up properly if the SD Card was in. I tried removing the Smash Stack file, but this issue still existed. I eventually just started taking my SD Card out to turn my Wii on, then putting it back in once it was on, which seemed to work. Then, a few days ago, I decided that I once again wanted to play Mario Strikers Charged, a game that I had previously owned and lost. So I set off in search of a new Backup Launcher. I eventually installed IOS236, then used that to install cIOS rev21 to IOS249 iirc. Then I downloaded NeoGamma R9 B50 (the app, not the channel). I downloaded a Mario Strikers Charged iso and burnt it to a Sony DVD-R with ImgBurn at 4x speed, and had 0 errors with the burning. But then, for whatever reason, this disc, when loaded with NeoGamma, continually froze after about 2 minutes of having been played. Originally I blamed the disc, thinking that perhaps it was a bad burn, but then I decided to try my old Guitar Hero 3 custom disc. I was able to play a few songs, but then it too froze. This happened multiple times. This leads me to believe that it is not the disc's fault, but rather something that I have done to my Wii that is preventing me from running backups. Though I did end up fixing my SD Card issue by simply formatting my card, I still have no idea what is causing my disc freezing issue. Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be the issue, or what I can do to fix it? I have tried to provide as much information as I possibly can remember, though do keep in mind that this all happened awhile ago and I don't know much about Wii hacking in general. Thanks for reading.
