    Question Minimum Requirements For Specific Backup Games?

    I softmodded my Wii ages ago (using Twilight Princess) and haven't used it in over a year. I tried to play some backed up games recently, and they wouldn't work. I realize that this is an incredibly broad question, but how can I determine the cause of this - is there a way to determine which firmware (ie 4.2u, which I'm on) is the minimum for playing a certain game? Do I need to load new IOS files? Any guidance here would be much appreciated for this n00b. Thanks in advance!

    If you have HBC installed, there's a section in spoilers in the guide cited above where you'd start from...

    I re-did the entire thing from start to finish exactly as described in the thread. I'm still having issues though. This is only with newer backups. I won't get into specifics as to which backups, but is it possibly that newer backups just don't work from DVD media, and need to be played via USB? Or could it perhaps be because these newer backups are "scrubbed"? \

    I haven't tried playing backups from USB drive yet, but I'd consider purchasing one for this purpose if it's the only way to make this happen. Older backups on DVD still work fine for me.

    Super Mario All-Stars was the last one I tried, and it wouldn't work. I remember New Super Mario Brothers wasn't working properly either. But most of my older backups work just fine.

    I still haven't had any luck getting these to work...

    Are these games that will only work when backed up onto an external?
