    Wii HBC Issue - Retail Discs Not Being Read

    'Ello. My name's MikalMirkas and I need some help. I'm completely lost and somewhat new to the homebrew scene. My Wii was purchased at launch, it's currently at System Menu 4.3U. I used the Indiana Pwns Exploit to Homebrew my Wii. However, when I went to boot up a retail disc from the Disc Channel afterwards, it just says:

    Unable to read the disc.
    Check the Wii Operations Manual
    for help troubleshooting.
    I don't know how I can really provide more information.

    Thanks for reading. Halp pl0xies.

    I followed some guide off of WiiBrew, the Indiana Pwns exploit.

    All these stubs mean that you are not fully modded. There is more to it that just installing the hbc aand bootmii.
    Look at Mauifrogs Mod Any Wii guide...

    So, fully modding it will fix the optical drive?

    Probably not but it looks like you want to be modded so I was pointing you in the right direction.
    You wii drive could be on the way out or the lens has got quite dirty and could do with a clean.

    You can get a nintendo lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't work I have heard people go as far as taking the wii apart and cleaning the lens with ethonol and if that doesn't work you could always replace the drive.

    The retail discs worked fine before I Homebrewed the Wii.
    I heard that it might be "DVDX" or whatever that is. I haven't tried running a DVD on it yet.
