    hey guys i have a modded wii not sure of what mod chip but i can update it via nintendo and it'd be fine.

    so what im having trouble is i don't know if it's the wii or the game cuz i'd burn a game on a dvd and it'd work fine but then when i play certain games it'd work but some won't.
    like im playing MH3 now it's working like an original copy right, but then it says unable to read disc on games like SMG2 then old games that used to work fine starts up but now says unable to read disc refer to the manual balbal.
    does it have something to do with the cios thing or iso whatever? or is it just the disc? thanks appreciate it. [​IMG]

    Probably your Wii drive laser is dying.

    Try using quality DVDs, like Taiyo Yuden's and Verbatim's.

    That should alleviate the issue.

    Well, no, not really. Why don't you just softmod it? Get the Homebrew Channel, and run NeoGamma with cIOS 249. (of course, I know nothing about modchipped Wii's, so someone correct me if I'm wrong.)

    It is not the chip, but the software that blocks the Wii games false reading, I also had the same problem I solved by playing with the hard disc ... : (

    usb loader combined with a usb flash drive/hard disk (flash drives dont go to sleep and are made for the people that only want to play SSBB, MKWii etc)

    I had this issue with some games a while back and for me it was down to dodgy discs, the game would work for a bit then unable to read disc, turn wii off etc etc, a point tho sometimes it is the laser cant read specific disc, I had an original copy of twilight princess, and my wii only 2-3months old would not read the disc, and then I actually knocked it slightly and then the disc loaded haha.
