softmodded Wii "UNABLE TO READ THE DISC"
I softmodded my Wii about 6 weeks ago and everything worked perfectly. I installed GxLoader and backed up my 35 games and have been running all perfectly off my HD. This morning I tried to add a new game I got and GxLoader reported it could not read the disc format. I tried using the Wii disc loader and it also reported "unable to read the disc". I tried each of my 35 disc and none can be read. Now I realize that the drive could have chosen this moment to die but I am a little suspicious of coincidences. I went and checked all of my settings and noticed I missed "block online updates" in Priiloader. Could an online update caused this problem (I know better than accept but my 8 year old doesn't). I used "ModWii" because it seemed the least likely to make a mistake, is this a trust worthy way of modding or should I do it manually? Any recommended course of action, i.e. redo everything, restore my nand backup or just leave it alone since all my other games work perfectly off the HD and I'd hate to make matters worse. I have a new Wii U coming on Christmas for my son and this experience has spoked me about modding it in the future. Any words of wisdom or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
