Disk reading Errors (but drive is fine) Possible ios conflicts
Hello fellow Wii Owners/Hackers.
My Google FU has completely failed me on this one, so i'm reaching out for help.
In an effort to give you as much infomation to help you help me solve my current issue, please prepare for a wall of text:
My Wii is a Day 1 Wii, that has been hacked since the initial release of the Twilight hack way back in the day. Over the years, it's been further hacked, updated, etc etc, up until today.
Over that period, Obviously back then, disk based backups were the order of the day, so eventually installed dark corps, So they would run from the disk channel etc, and over time moved to USB loaders and Neogamma for gamecube backups, with the cmios and what not. And copying the games from the Disks to the hard drive worked a treat, so moved onto a fully USB loaded world.
Now however, Something has gone wrong. I've moved to a new bigger HD, and am now using Fat, with 32kb cluster size, with a view to move to an emulated nand, and USB gamecube loading etc, and thought while I was at it, I would copy all my games still on disks (my originals, and other backups I did not have room for on my previous HD) onto the nice new one.
CFG loader gives me ERROR! (ret = -2) when I try to copy the disk via the + Button.
Wii flow gives me a disk open error when i try to copy it via that.
But then discovered, even more worrying, that original disks are no longer read in the disk channel. Booting a Disk from CFG loader and Wiiflow also failed.
Thinking that my Disk drive had died on me, as I had not used it for a long time, finally tried NeoGamma.
It booted. An original, a backup, and a multigame Gamecube backup.
So the drive is fine.
So now I turn to you guys for help, What could be goin on here? Obviously some kind of conflict going on what with the vast ammount of Ios's, cios's and other wads/mods that have been loaded over the years.
I Have used modmii to "rehack" my wii. making sure i had all the latest files etc, Still no go.
To further help you, I tried to run system check, so you could get a view as to whats actually running on my Wii, But that also seems to be failing. About 75% of the way through the Checking for Vulnerablities, it boots me out back to the bootmii menu.
So, any ideas guys?
Also, as a Side note, I do, of course, have a bootmii nand backup, from when I first installed bootmii a few years back, But by that point, obviously i had already had quite a few hacks installed. I know that to use Sneek, you hack the Nand open, and delete a lot of the contents. Am I able to use that process to "virginise" my wii, and start over? Im not fussed about savegames etc, just rather start again. I know its been said in the past that you dont need to start over, just re-hack it, but in my case, thats clearly not worked.
