    Thank you. That certainly helps. I'm assuming it's true then. That anything made past 2009 can't be modded to play DVD's?

    Downgrading is really no more risky than updating so long as you do it as the guide says. But it is also optional so you don't have to, I have downgraded from 4.2 to 4.1 and there was no issues for me.

    The best advice if you're going to downgrade is thus:

    Have a NAND backup and, if possible, BootMii installed as boot2.

    Have Priiloader installed (not only will it block Nintendo from updating your Wii, it will also allow you to bypass the system menu in case of a brick)

    Make sure before installing the required files to downgrade that you have read and completely understand the guide. This includes properly performing the MD5 check to make sure the wads are not corrupt.

    I believe that is what you were told (I do believe at least twice now). Are you Doubting Thomas, lol?

    Haaha! I suppose I am. My DVD player went boing and I'm looking for a cheap ~ or FREE ~ alternative. Sorry for the repetitiveness. Being a Net nerd since the early nineties has made me a very cynical boy. And now we have FaceBook and the truth is even more fleeting. I tend to believe nothing I'm told and about half of what I see. Guess I'll have to open my dusty wallet after all.

    Thanx for the info and the patience.

    Loading From Disc-
    If you have a Wii purchased after mid to late 2009 it will not be able to read backup discs. Backup discs must be loaded from a disc loader, such as Neogamma. They will not work from the disc channel unless you have installed Darkcorp.
    I was wondering about this....I never installed Darkcorp (not even really sure what it is) but I followed this guide and my wii plays backup disc straight from the disc channel. Is the info I quoted out of date information?

    If that's the case, you either have a modchip or DARKCORP (or the older cIOSCORP) installed. Post a sysCheck and we can check if DARKCORP is installed.
