I was referring to post #10707 that said
It didn't work. I'll try again later though on another computer, on the formatter tool when I selected "Format Type: ERASE" it said my computer wasn't able to do it, so I tried doing the "Format Type: OVERWRITE" option and that didn't work. It still freezes once I get to the "Press 1 to continue" point..
which is what inspired the idea in my previous post. is that not referring to something pc-related, and non-wii related?
