Try re-installing D2x v8 wads.
You said it stopped working on his wii when he installed more games , but the same HDD works on another wii.:confused:
Also, try loading the hdd through the other usb port.
If re-installing those wads doesn't work , try going through the Soft Mod Any Wii Guide one last time and follow it all the way through.
His wii could have bigger problems then just ios's/cios's,(Seeing how the system check looks fine) As stated by Mk2escort.
Also remember not to delete any Ios/cios's under 200, it could damage the wii.
I only had 2 bad blocks when doing the nand backup but they went away after it checked the second time. Just talked to my friend again last night about his Wii and he told me that he switched from a SD to a SDHC, for use with some emulators, in addition to adding several game backups to his hard drive. He said he hasn't been able to play a game since. I purchased a 2gb SD card and transfered the apps folder over to it. Still no luck loading any games, just green or black screen. I cleared all of the config files for USB loader gx and tried running it in there. Emulators and roms load fine via SD and SDHC cards. I was hoping someone else would chime in as well because I've been sitting on this Wii for several weeks now.
It must be a cIOS issue. I Think emulators don't need any cIOSes to run. The nand must be good if you only got two bad blocks. The only thing i can suggest is to try the old d2x.
So I tried re-installing the d2x v8 wads like jax recommended but it still does not work. Somtimes I get a green screen, other times a black screen. Even if I do not change the settings. Should I re-soft mod with the SD card rather than the SDHC card that I did it with the other times? What other problems are you talking about jax?
Did you mod this wii with an sdhc card ? thats a nono. use a standard sd card not an sdhc. also try changing this ios the games load to manualy in the loaders settings. i had a wii where every game had to be configured one by one. but back to my first statement, RE_MOD WITH STANDARD SD CARD NOT SDHC !
Well modded that wii with a standard SD card on several different occasions to no avail. Ended up trading that wii in for a new one at a $30 hit. Now I am having problems getting this one to load anything from usb. I used a 2gb SD card to do the softmod process, which I have now done twice. I installed d2x v8 mods as well as updated every IOS. I was able to get SSBB to load from USB loader gx without changing any settings but I am having trouble getting the other games to load. I've messed with the video settings, which works on my personal wii, but on this wii I get green and black screens with the occasional pink screen. Sounds of the games can be heard in the background but no picture. I'll post a system check if needed but does anyone have any suggestions?
