    Black screen when loading backups

    Hello, I have the console starting LU72 and firmware 4.1u I did the Tutorial step by step but when it starts loading the backup from disc, a black screen comes up and the drive stops, it happens even if i do it without any disc inside so i guess it's not a disc or game problem but a general one. I have asked how to solve it but unfortunatelly havent found an answer yet, im desperate by now, i have been 1 week with this issue, if you find something, please let me know... Thanks.!!!

    Did you miss the installation of any IOS or cIOS? If you did, that might be stopping it from working. Try a different backup launcher like Wiigator (it's the one I use), maybe that'll alleviate some of the issues. Change some settings around. Good luck : )

    Your Wii serial number is above the LU70 so you have the D3-2 chip which does not allow back-up DVD-Rs to be read.

    You need to go to the wiidrive website at Wii Drive Chip Database to see what I writing about.

    The best you can do now is burn your game iso onto a SD card or external hard drive and store it there. From what I've read on this forum, games stored on an external hard drive connected to the USB port load faster.

    The best external hard drive is a Western Digital (WD) Passport; buy as big as you can afford. Many members have 1TB external hard drives, as they store both games and movies on them.

    So now if you have little kids who never take care of disks including back-up disks then that issue goes away by placing everything on an external hard drive, continually connected to the Wii's USB, but located in a safe place that is out of reach from the kids.

    Cheers!

    Yes, DVD-R's tend to only play back at speeds of 3x whereas a regular Wii Disc plays at 6x or 8x I believe, and USB HDD's enable games to be played at the original speed. Even on a USB stick as small as 4GB, if you don't mind backing games up on the computer, you can get away with most things : ) Games like Zelda: Twilight Princess, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario (just a few of the offerings of the Wii) all of these games are <4GB : ) But yes, go the way of playing games off of a USB drive. See the guide in my sig for more.
