    Post not sure what update, but all backups dvds dont work but originals still do.

    hi all,

    i tried updating some software on my wii, cios and darkcorps and before i used to be able play all backups and the originals through the normal game channel.
    Now the originals work fine, but backups dont work at all.

    I tried making a new backup, thinking it could be the disc, but later relized it must be the softmod stuff gone wrong.

    i was considering making future backups on a harddrive so i updated to test configuable usb loader - must have knocked something off thats screwed the dvds.

    not sure what to do next:
    how can i repair the game channel?
    should i just backup all originals and go down the hdd route?
    or can the dvd channel be repaired and future backups go onto hdd ?

    keep get the black screen and error loading messages, either as soon as the disc loads or after intros from the games.

    thanks for any help

    Nothing is wrong with your DVD drive if the originals play fine. I suggest you go with USB loading, as it is way better. It's faster, you don't have to switch discs, and it doesn't wear down on your lense like burned backups do.

    or just use a backup loader channel........its in the download link with the 'softmod any wii' package.

    Quick update, can't get cioscorps / darkcorps work at all - so used backup channel loader.

    still none of my old backups worked, so i tried making another and that works in the channel loader but not darkcorps way, dunno whats sup with my old backups dvds seem un damaged.
    another note using base 57 instead of base 58 - seemed to get my new backup working.

    I then tried backing it up to usb stick as wbfs file and your right it's loads better, got a nice menu with game covers on it and loads miles quicker.

    thanks 4 all the help
