I've been having this problem ever since i was trying to download Wii sports resort

I have a wii which has homebrew and i wanted to put in some new games, WSR was one of them
All the other games worked fine but when i try to load WSR it resets my Wii and brings me directly back to the wii menu, this also happens when i tried to play Wii play motion
I recently got 2 new wii remotes with Wii motion plus and i really wanted to try playing these games but i just can't

Things i tried:
Loading with different loaders (Specifically ULoader, NeoGamma and USBLoaderGX)

Well, that's about it since i don't really know much about wii hacking
Still, anybody got any solutions?
SOLVED

I managed to fix it by pressing "delete alternate Dol." on ULoader on both games when I'm about to load it, i finally got both games to work finally!

U have to watch the motion + video once on the console before being able to play any games that use it. Some game backups are missing the partition with this video to save space, you will need to find one (or an original disk) that includes the video so u can watch it once (iirc u can fast forward it)

Find a full disk image in *.ISO format.
Compare its checksum with redump.org known results.
Write this image to a USB disk using the Wii Backup Manager.

Update: Btw, is it "Wii Sports Resort" or "Wii Sports + Wii Sports Resort"?
Also, is the game (image) for the same region as the system?

I did check and it is indeed an ISO format

Just Wii sports resort, and it is the same region, NSTC

So this video must be present on the disk image.

So there can be no theoretical (though long ago solved) problems because of multi-DOL and because of "Video Mode" either.

I did not see any answer about whether the disk image checksum corresponds to the known results from redump.org.
Tho nevertheless. If you don't want to do it, don't do it.

Let's try to mess around with multi-DOL/alt-DOL/Whatever-it's-called a bit:
Try this (USB Loader GX):
Select this game (Wii Sports Resort) so that the 'Settings' and 'Start' buttons appear.
Press 'Settings'. This will bring up a menu of individual game settings.
Go to the 'Game Load' section, it has the last two settings in the list: 'Alternate DOL' and 'Select DOL offset'.
Set 'Alternate DOL' to 'Select a DOL from game', this activates the possibility of selecting values in the 'Select DOL offset'.
Press 'Select DOL offset' and select 'Motion+ Video' in the window that appears.
Then 'Save', 'Back', 'Back', get some popcorn and finally 'Start'.

watch the motion plus video from skyward sword, I guess. toggle with settings, some games do not like certain settings like emunand for saves. ironically, skyward sword is one of them.
