    Unhappy Softmodded Wii Error: The Disc Could Not Be Read.

    Hello Everyone,

    I've softmodded my wii and downloaded myself some Backup Launchers including ULoader, which boots up fine. When I put in a burned game (which I have burned at 2x speed) it can also see it. I load the game and here comes the problem: Some games I get the safety warning thing, and in some others not. After that I get a black screen for a few seconds and closely after that I get the message: "The disc could not be read. Please refer to the instruction manual for details." I've also burned Epic Mickey yesterday, it started up perfectly but after I choose to start a new game I get this same error after a few seconds of loading. Any Suggestions? Please?
    For Any Questions, PM Me.

    how old is the wii.. Newer wii's will not play back ups from discs.. USB loading is the way to go if you have a newer wii.

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    I don't think the new d3-2 and d4 drives will even get that far to see the safety screen. I would try the latest version of Neogamma and make sure you have cIOS38 rev 17 installed in slot 249. Really sounds like it could be a bad rip or bad media. Only use vertabin DVD -r and burn with imgburn at slow speeds.

    I think My Wii is about 2-3 years old (It's just a white one). I use verbatim DVD-R for burning, I burn at 2x speed. When I use Neogamma R9 And When I press "Load DVD" I get error -1078? It's so weird O_o I'll try to find some more info.

    Ok Thanks for the quick reply. Pretty strange because In the very beginning my backups worked for like a day or two. Very odd. So I should buy myself a External Hard Drive with like... 200gb memory?

    Depends on how many games u have to backup. Game sizes after ripped to a drive vary from 15mb to 8gb. So with 200 gigs you could probably fit 70 games give or take.

    If your games were working before then I think it is a cIOS problem. Take a look at this blackscreen guide.

    It could also be a dirty lens.

    Ok thanks again. Another question If I use a external hard drive to play my wii backups. Will this work without any problems (normally?)
    When i look at the link you gave me, I wouldn't know what to do, actually . I Guess I'll just try with an External Hard Drive. Will this work? Btw I think it wasn't 1078, It was -1178.
    What should I do?

    If you followed a guide on this site to softmod your Wii, you should be good. Try this guide to set up your hard drive.
