    Wii not always reading backups since 4.1 update.

    Hello,

    I had a 3.4U Wii that was hacked about 1.5 years ago by using the Zelda exploit.
    (Wii modding for dummies was used as a guide).
    Everything was working no problem.

    Now fast forward to last week.
    The DVD drive went out and wouldn't read anything so it was swapped with a spare.
    At the same time the system was updated by using this guide(http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html).

    #1 I noticed is when backup is inserted it has to be launched from the OLD Backup Launcher.
    #2 Some of the backups load and play fine only to complain of unreadable disk during playing.
    Some backups still play ok, but others give an error message, including those that were playable before. No scratches either.
    #3 All originals work without problem.

    Before the system was upgraded I was able to install bootmii as boot2, so I have a NAND backup.

    Any ideas on how to make this function properly?

    Thanks

    Random guess but perhaps the spare drive isn't as good at reading backups as your old one (before it went pop anyway). The Wii drive isn't the best in the world and does give issues. Some people find that DVD-R from any manufacturer will work on their Wii, even DVD+R but others find that only quality brands like Verbatim DVD-R work flawlessly and even then only when burnt very slowly. I've heard that adjusting the drive can improve loading, but I've no idea how it's done or how good the results are.

    You say you have to launch from the old backup launcher. Do you have no luck with Noegamma? What happens when you try?
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Hi Tealc,

    The disks I use are Verbatim DVD+R's.
    As far as Neogamma the result is the same.
    I am thinking of using the guide to make the Wii virgin again and try from the start. Maybe something didn't install right... who knows.
    What do you think?

    Thanks

    You could google signcheck Wii and download it onto your SD card. It'd go within the /apps folder into a subfolder (like "signcheck") and launched via HBC. You can generate a report of all IOS installed. It'll save this as a .csv file on the root of the SD card. Open it via notepad on the PC and copy'n'paste the results into a reply on this thread.

    I don't think virginizing will be necessary and will serve to make it much more complicated on you.
    Try this; reboot the pc and afterwards open the task manager to stop as many unnecessary tasks from running in the background as possible, then burn a disk at 4x speed. preferrably dvd-r, but if all you have is +r, that will have to do.
    It sounds like there is an interuption of memory resources during burning and it is causing the data to be incorrectly wriiten to the disk.
    This will refresh the memory and stop any other leaks that may occur. If it work, you have a method that will produce results. And it is what I have to do as well.

    That's the one. You may wish to take Odd's advice into account as well --- slow burning and no unnecessary tasks if an older PC system, etc.

    I am 99% positive that it's not the disk issue.
    I always burn at 4x and my PC is i7-920 w 6GB/s of ram.
    Besides all the disks worked just fine on the old drive and my Wii.

    (Yes, I am posting this for a friend... so waiting on signcheck file myself).

    I am "kind of" happy with my WODE, lol

    You may be correct, just wanted to bring up the possibility as it fit the symptoms well. Things like adware and trojans running in the background can really mess up the burning process, even on the most powerful of pc and you'll never get an error to indicate a problem is there. There may also be an issue with dust or ciggarette smoke film (just mentionng not saying for certain) causing issue with the drive lens being able to read the backups. Anyway good luck with the signcheck.
