    Problems with Samba De Amigo/IOS37

    Granted I am new to the Wii modding scene, but I've had some recent successes (installed HBC, downgraded to 3.2 & installed the softmod loader) so I thought I had a handle on all of this.

    But last night I found that my backed-up copy of Samba de Amigo (don't laugh at me, it was for the wife) didn't work. After loading the disc using tthe Gamma back-up loader I get a screen that says "The game disc could not be read. Please read the Wii Operations Manual for more information." so I took the disc out and got a message that said "Please insert the Samba de Amigo Game Disc". So obviously the .ISO I used and the DVD burn process were both fine since the Wii recognised that the title I was trying to load was Samba de Amigo. I should add that I have had two succesful backed-up games (Tiger Woods PGA Tour '08 and Ninjabread Man) working on my Wii.

    I had a hunt around these forums and saw a reference to ISO37 being needed. (See this thead.) So I did a Google search and found the Custom IOS37 rev 03 installer (.dol and .elf) on waninkoko.info, downloaded it, popped the extracted files into a folder in apps on my favourite homebrew SD card and fired up HBC. I was surprised to find that it didn't appear in my HBC menu, and after I double-checked the SD card and reloaded it through HBC I still couldn't see the IOS37 installer. So I used my brain and found a WAD of the same (IOS37_64_v2070.wad) and installed it through WAD Manager 1.3. All went well and within a few minutes I rebooted the Wii, popped the Samba de Amigo disc back in the Wii and ended up getting the exact same message as above.

    I just now tried the Custom IOS37 rev 02 installer from the waninkoko site. I placed a folder (with the .elf and .dol files) in the apps folder, as well as the same folder in the root, and as an extra safety measure I put the .dol and .elf files in the root. None of these appeared in the HBC menu!

    What's going on and what can I do to get Samba de Amigo working?

    the .Dol goes app/cios/boot.dol
    the wad goes in the root

    you install Via the .dol, just boot like any app in HBC

    as for samba -,_-, i was playing the japanese one, it was fun, till i got tired from all the movement xD

    Thanks Admiral. Your advice helped me get the IOS loaded (I can't believe I didn't think to rename the installer to boot.dol LOL).

    However now all I am getting is a black screen, with the drive quietly whirring up for a couple of seconds, a subtle "beep" and then a click as the machine resets itself. I've left the Wii running for 5 minutes and it keepslooping through this whir/beep/click sequence.

    Perhaps another IOS is needed? Or maybe a different loader?

    I thought that this post might offer a solution but when I load Gecko OS I get an "This is not a valid Wii application"!

    After some trial and error I've got the right Gecko OS now, but it won't load SdA (or Skate It for that matter).

    The error that comes up is: No DVD

    Perhaps I'll try a different loader.

    OK, so now I've tried Wiigator with the same result as Gecko OS: No DVD (324).

    Admiral V - can you remember what loader you were using for SdA?

    Can anyone suggest another back-up loader please?

    Yeah, it looks like I'll have to bite the bullet.

    It was a road I was hoping not to have to go down - you see, the serial number sticker is missing off the back of my Wii and every resource I've seen says that this is a necessary piece of info for choosing the correct modchip.
