    Newbee needs help please

    Hi everyone.

    I have a problem, I have a wii with system 3.4E and last week I got the modchip drivekey installed on it.
    Due to lack of knowledge a now thought that I could play all backup games, but boy was I wrong

    Almost every game I "backup" wont start, I get an black screen with an errormessage saying "An error has occured. Press the eject button an remove the disc, then turn the wii console of and refer to the operstionsmanual"

    Itīs either this or an error message saying "the game disc could not be read" Please refer to the manual"

    Do I also need to softmod the console?
    I have read a lot of threads in the forum but I just donīt know where to start? Do I need HBC? IOS-something?? WHat do I do??

    Please Help!!

    Ps: Could it bee that Iīm using DVD+R format discs? Have seen that most use DVD-R??

    How new is the Wii, it may not be the drivekey but a new drive chip.


    Hi and welcome to WiiHacks haasz

    If you need advice or help for anything Wii related you have joined the right site, whether its hard or soft modded.

    Don’t be shy, ask if you are stuck, just don’t expect other people to do all the work for you.

    Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.

    Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums.

    Here is the site index wiihacks ultimate index written by ShadowSonic2

    If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs

    If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs

    Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie

    2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.

    And please do donate to the forum if you are able so we can go on helping the Wii community.

    I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.

    The console is 1 year old, but the chip is was installed last week at a store, and it says DriveKey 2.0
    Do I need to enter the menu and changes setting there?

    It's OK your Wii will not have the new chip.
    The best DVD's are Verbatim DVD-R.
    I am not that conversant with hard mods so I don't know how to change the settings.

    Hey haasz74, for one, all backups need to burned on DVD-Rs, + discs don't work with the wii. Two you might need a few IOS installed. You can always follow one of the guides that WiiJohn posted in the above message.

    And if you are still stuck then go to the WiiHacks Newbie Discussions Forum some one in there will help you.

    THANKS for all yor input guys....
    I fixed it....didīnt burn the discs right.
    Had to flash my burner so that I could change the booktype in IMGBurn from DVD+R to DVD-ROM!

    Works like a charm now!!

    Beastmaster, it actually works with DVD+ discs now! Sooooo happy...

    Glad to hear haasz74 that it all worked out.
    I have always burned my backups with DVD-Rs, but at least now i know i can
    use DVD+Rs by changing the booktype.
