I have tried for 2 days now and as a last resort am asking for advice. here is the story.

I soft modded my wii no problem a month or so ago. Everything was fine unil the wife decided to update to 4.2E. I then read and followed all the tutorials. downgraded installed all as per the tutorial and still the backups wont play. just a clunking noise from the drive. I have upraded to 4.2e and followed all steps in the tutorial again no errors all went sweet but still the same clunking noise.

i tried a USB flash (4 gig) usb loader see it but when i install the game it freezes.

Totally lost on this one fellas and would appreciate some advice as im just about to throw the towel in.
