    I actually agree with both NSDCars5 and BluPhant. Disc loading stinks, and is a far inferior way of playing backups.

    But... I have old inlaws that refuse to use anything but a disc to load their backups. And I am running into the same problems. Fortunately I have a hardware mod in my wii, which is an older version. Unfortunately, I cannot remember which chip I loaded and now regular and backup discs both do not work. I am going to have to take it apart and see which chip is in there.

    Long story short, I feel NSDCars5 pain for a channel that just essentially plays the game right off the banner without the clutter of wiiflow,neogamma, etc.

    To be continued...

    If pressed discs + backups arent working, it smells more like hardware failure to me......

    Yes, it does look like a system prob. Do you have a softmod too? If not, just pull out the chip and send it to Nintendo.

    I am able to still play backups off of the usb hard drive. But the disc loader channel just gives me unable to read disc no matter if its a backup or a real game. I will open it up sometime this week.

    You can see the banner of the backup because your system ios is patched with dip module. So the wii can load backup disc from the disc channel that run on ios36, 9, 11, 20, 30, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 200+

    Your friend could probably use iospatcher to patch game ios to ios249, then burn it. Most games would probably play fine from the disc channel this way.

    Or, you could always install darkcorp 1.1. Just don't run its uninstaller if you have the version patched system menu installed.

    To play from an external HDD you will need a properly formatted drive and a usb loader app. THIS GUIDE will tell you how to do this as well as give you links to download the loaders.

    You can ask this question as many times as you like the answer will be the same. Some work was done on this some years back but as far as I'm aware no one is pursuing this. You're not going to find anything, no matter how many times you ask, regardless of how many exclamation points you add.
