    Zelda soft Mod Wii having issues playing backups

    Hi

    Hadnt used my Wii in over a year but decided to dust it off over the weekend to find that I was sporadically gettting the #002 error when loading my backlups using Wii Backup Launcher. A bit if background - my Wii was soft modded using Zleda about 2 years ago allowing me to install WAD manager 1.3 and Wii backup Launcher. I had the occasional crash when i first did it but things appeared fine. Im not sure of my firmware model but i suspect its quite old as my Wii is about 3 years opld if not older.

    So i googled the error last night and saw some posts my EmuHack who suggested downloading neogamer 9 so i dontloaded the most up to date channel, copied it to SD and installed it via WAD manager. When i now load up backups i occasionally get error #003 unauthorisaed device and again sometimes it works.

    I then read something about upgrading my CIOS or something but i havent got a clue what I'm doing - all i want to do is to consistently play my backup games with minimal effort and messing about! What do i need to do? When I google the error most of the fixes appear to be for mod chips but my mine if soft modded so please help!
    Thanks in advance

    Having used the twilight hack that long ago, your softmod is most likely quite out of date. The only real drawback to softmodding is that they do require some upkeep. There have been a lot of improvements since you did yours. The softmod any wii guide linked i my signature has a section for softmods with HBC installed, it will get your wii updated to the most current cios and ios. This may solve your problems. USB loading is a much better way to go vs backup discs too.

    Hey thanks for the reply. I'll look into the USB loading option along with getting my soft mod up to date - one question, am i still able to reset my Wii to factory settings after all this modding? ONly asking as may end up selling it...!
    Thanks again

    As it is now, you cannot really reset it to be undetectable bu Nintendo. You can always remove the mod and make it work as Nintendo designed it though.

    OK, thanks for that. I'm just going through the guide; seeing as i already have HBC and WAD Manager, do I still need to go through the guide step by step and install everything? Ideally I just want to see one channel to load backup games from; at the moment i've got neogamer, wii backup launcher, Wii backup manager...its getting a bit messy!
    Do I need to be aware of what version firmware I'm running etc or is it a one size fits all guide?

    Thanks
    Sam

    I recommend doing it all. Read it and you will see. As far as channels go, you know you can drag them off to the other screens if you do not want to look at them? Hold A+B to grab it. It's not a bad idea to have other ones on there for those times you run into issues with a game. You will usually be asked to try a different loader, you will already have it there to use.
