disk read problems with original disks in disk channel
bought my wii last Christmas and updated it to 4.2U. Softmodded using a 4.2 guide and everything worked fine except for the constant freezes in both usbloader and wiiflow. Using Dop-Mii v14.2, I downgraded to 4.0U and then read around and went back up to 4.1U using dop mii. Now whenever i stick a disk in the drive, I get an "unable to read disk" error. Games still load and will copy just fine (borrowed a neighbors disk to test) through USBLoader GX, but sometimes i just want to pop a game in and play. Below is a syscheck printout to help out if possible. Searching hasn't helped me much in dealing with the stubbed ios files and figuring out what to do with them, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Got warned earlier for attempting a bump on this thread, but I fixed the issue and thought I should share. So while still on 4.2U i updated priiloader to v.4. When I went from 4.0U to 4.1U, I updated the hacks.ini file for 4.1. For some reason, the hacks.ini file defaulted to enable "Force disc games to run under IOS249" and "Force disc region to wii region". I disabled both and I now have my disc channel working as it should.
Any help on the stubbed files would still be appreciated. Thanks
Some stubs are normal, when Nintendo "mothballs" an IOS. To see more what I mean, look here.
It seems unlikely you followed a wiihacks guide in this softmodding, however --- the vast majority of your IOS are trucha-enabled, which normally wouldn't be the case. Also, cIOS-249 Rev 20 is installed, which is further evidence of this. I suspect the usage of "Brick My Wii" (there's a reason why we call it this) in addition to DOP-Mii --- unless you arbitrarily decided to trucha-enable all of those IOS.

I did use a wiihacks guide, but hence my join date and (05/2010) the fact that it stayed softmodded and untouched at 4.2U until the last two weeks, I was a little out of the loop when I started playing with it again. I will admit to the use of Pimp my wii aka "Brick my wii" in an attempt to troubleshoot and/or prevent usb loader gx from freezing 10 or 15 minutes into every game, which started after updating usb loader from the current version that was out when originally softmodded (which really didn't seem to help anything, but it did not brick my wii. I installed hermes 222/223 (???) before downgrading to 4.1u and am now running games from ios222 and haven't had any problems until yesterday when I put my neighbors game in and the channel starting giving me the error. Like I said though, I have figured that one out.
So should I do anything with the stubbed ios files or does my syscheck check-out ok? I have also played with Dop Mii, but that was mostly for downgrading and merely exploring what I can do.
Thanks for the help nightstah
What do you mean by this?? Just wondering?? Thanks

Brick my wii definitely updated to the 4.3 version of many of ios files, which were said to not be downgradeble, but I did downgrade a few to play around, using Dop Mii 14.2, and no problems yet...thats a big yet. I have never bricked one yet, so I am kinda just playing around and trying to understand the whole process. I should mention that Dop Mii gives a slightly different syscheck than the one provided above. I will continue to play, and as alway, any help or advice is much appreciated. Thanks
Your cIOS aren't stubs - those are fine. You asked about IOS, not cIOS.
1 User Says Thank You nightstah For This Useful Post
When I pull them up with Dop Mii, they say they are stubs...which I have not messed with anything yet. I understand the differences between the IOS and the cIOS files. I am just trying to figure this stuff out. I read not to delete any IOS under 200, but if they are useless stubs,, why leave them around?? And am I safe or is there any reason to downgrade the files Pimp my wii updated back down to the earlier versions. Whats that old saying "if it aint broke dont fix it" ...and that is where I am at, just like I said, I would like to know what I am doing and not just arbitrarily doing stuff that serves no greater good. Once again...thanks nightstah
