    Unhappy installed homebrew channel successfully but cant read backups suddenly

    what a day to start the new year, just got a brand new modded wii this new year and it was working really fine yesterday until i installed the homebrew channel and some vc games.

    i installed homebrew channel beta 8 through the dvd drive which was successful then i installed wad manager 1.0 to install megaman 9 and zelda which was also working perfectly. then i tried to run my backed up games which produced the unable to read disc error. this also happened to my original games. So im unable to run my backed up games but i could play the vc games perfectly

    i'm totally stuck as to what's causing my wii not reading dvds as the dvd drive is working very fine until i popped in the homebrew channel installer. Adding to that i'm a totally noob in this wii modding/homebrew thing (just got it yesterday) so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    btw, my wii fw version is 3.2u and runs on a d2cpro modchip

    tried uninstalling all the wad files in console, admiral. but nothing seems to change. i have been thinking maybe the homebrew channel could be causing this?

    try booting in gecko OS, because it shouldnt cause this issue

    Did you install StarFall with this?

    Some of those configurations can cause odd issues.

    i tried launching the backups with gecko os but it only says no disc. also i havent installed starfall yet as it looks risky. to add something i tried to launch my backups with gamma launcher v0.3 and it says disc error 324. what does this code means?

    btw, is there any way to diagnose a broke wii drive?

    Sorry mate but typing out info like that is only going to lead to confusing people......


    Also, wugols2004: Are you using good dvd-rs like verbatim?

    I only ask this because once I burnt an image on a different brand dvd-r it read the disc once, then wouldn't read it after that and kept giving the disc error.

    Just a thought.

    all my backups have different brands, i just borrowed them, and they were working pretty fine until i switch to an iomega dvdr for the installer of the homebrew channel. after installing it, my wii suddenly cant read all my discs, even the originals!

    anyway, im gonna hav to bring my wii to my local vendor to check the drive. it might have went bad coincidentally after installing the homebrew channel sooo im currently crossing my fingers.
