    Do you have a working disc drive? I see in your syscheck's that it could not detect your drive. You need at least a partially working drive to be able to play backups and channels.

    My disc drive just died but i didnt know that affected the channels ok so now my problem is the only drive I have as a replacement is the new type and this is my sons wii(he is 5). I don't want him to play the originals so i made backups of all the games and they won't run on the new drive.

    The only external drive I have is 20gb and from what i could tell it not compatible and biggest sd i have is 8gb.

    So what are my options I just bought the wii and a bunch of controllers and games I don't want to keep spending money but if I have to what is my cheapest option.

    Also I would like to thank everybody for the help much love to the wiihack mods you guys deff kno what your talking about

    So the Wii's DVD drive needs to work in order to softmod it and play games off an SD or USB drive?

    If your laser is burned out you can still play games off sd or usb. But if the drive is shot completely, like the drive chip is burned out or you take out the drive. Then it will not play backups from sd or usb.
