    Wii won't boot channels/games

    Hello again. I recently purchased a used Wii, under the impression that it worked fine. It had been soft modded and only played emulators ever. After I bought it, I realized that something was drastically wrong. Whenever a disc is put in, it kind of sticks halfway and the intake motor spins, so I have to manually push it in, but then it starts to spin it, and when it gets to the point that it would display the image in the disc channel, I get an error message:
    An error has occured. Please eject the disc and turn the power off, refer to the manual.
    So I tried booting them from back-ups from CFG loader. Same exact thing. It loads the IOS, (using 224 mload) and when the screen goes black and its ready to go, it gives me the error again. SO, I turn it off, and try to boot the shop channel, see if I could update or anything. Same exact error, even though there would be absolutely no connection to the disc drive.. The Homebrew channel is the ONLY thing I can boot, as well as anything on it, ie I can change IOS's, etc.
    Is this a problem that can be resolved? I have access to all of the parts in my other wii that bricked, so if its a drive issue I can fix that easily.
    Thanks in advance

    There is a problem with your dvd drive. The drive may be bad or become partialy disconected. Also the wii may have modchip autobooting games as I don't think you should get the error from the disc channel until the game is clicked on to load. You need to open up the wii and reconect the cables to the drive. If there is a modchip you should remove it if possible. You may need to replace the drive.

    Yeah, I fixed it. The data cable was glued into the drive.. But I can boot channels and games through HBC. Unfortunately, my drive refuses to read any disc in it, it kind of recognizes its there, the drive light turns on, an dthen it clicks twice and stops the spinning it barely started.. It says that it can't read it, and cfg says that there is no disc in the drive when I try to rip it... Is this an optic reader problem maybe?

    I would say, forget about the DVD drive and just run your games from a usb hard drive, ensuring that your Wii is properly Softmodded. Then you will never need to rely on your DVD drive...ever. Maui has a good "softmod any wii" manual, just do your D2xv7-final update afterwards and you should be off to the races.

    I do, they're all on back up. However, I cannot get new ones onto my drive without waiting a long time.
