    Cannot play retail GC games

    A while back I modded my Wii for usb loading and then eventually tried to get backup GC games to work, but failed so I gave up. But now when I try to play RETAIL GC discs it just gives me a black screen and locks my Wii. Could anyone tell me what to do to play GC games off a disc again?

    First thing; post a SysCheck. Second thing; what guide did you use? (Ours I hope)

    I'm pretty sure I started with this guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    Also, SysCheck is new to me, but i just looked it up and installed/ran it but it seems to have frozen at "testing IOS vulnerabilities". And the .csv file it created on my sd card is a blank document

    EDIT: Here is a picture of where my Wii freezes during SysCheck

    I would recommend that you go through our Softmod Any Wii guide and install everything, including those pieces that state that it's optional for 4.3 systems.

    Something is messed up in yours that is breaking syscheck, so updating everything should clear that up.

    And if you installed Dios Mios or Dios Mios Lite, it replaces the factory Mios and for some people prevents the play of retail disks. Check the Dios Mios guide to find a link to the Mios v10 wad file and install it using Wii Mod 3.2, which will overwrite DM or DML and replace it with a copy of that factory Mios, which will restore your GC retail setting.

    Links to all guides mentioned above exist in my signature.

    I installed Mios v10 like you mentioned and it worked! SysCheck still freezes, but I can play Wii games off the HDD AND retail gc games which is all I wanted. Thank you very much for the suggestions!

    Unplug everything from your Wii , then run the system check. If it still freezes , tell us on what ios/cios it is.

    When i say unplug everything , I mean gc mem cards /USB drives/gc remotes.
