This is a great forum, but by searching around i have still not been able to find a working solution to my problem.
I have an old wii (from 2007), hard-modded 3 years ago with the original Wiikey. Firmware of wiikey is now 1.99beta.
I was running on wii firmware 3.2E for years and everything was working well. A year ago or something like that I upgraded to 3.4E from a disc update, and then 60% of my backups stopped working: Not able to read disc, please refer to Wii manual.
I went through the "softmod any wii" guide on this forum, installed HBC, Darkcorp, Neogamma 9.47 etc and updated the firmware to 4.1E. The wii is still not able to load those problem DVD backup games after doing the softmodding (no improvment by softmodding)
Even old games like WiiPlay will not load from my backup DVDs (the loaded perfectly a few years ago when I had 3.2E on the Wii, but stopped working the moment I upgraded to 3.4E.
I use Verbatim DVD+R discs which always worked prior to the 3.4E update.
Any suggestions what I should try next?
