    Discs wont load, need help

    I have a problem with loading discs after trying to get HomeBrew app DVDX to work. I fiddled with it to much.

    Problem being, Wii cannot see the disks in Disc Channel and and when I try to load using Hombrew app

    TinyLoad it will be loading the disk and making a bad semi fast clicking sound in the disk drive then give me an error.


    An error has occurred.
    Press the Eject Button, remove the
    Game Disk, and turn off the power to the
    console. Please read the Wii Operations
    Manual for further instructions.


    I decided to skip using the Disc Drive all together by installing something so I can run games directly off of a External HDD.

    I followed the directions on this site [failguide link removed]

    Which were basically as follows (programs are put onto SD Card)

    DOP-Mii v15
    1. Run DOP-Mii and select Install I0S36 (v3351) w/FakeSign
    2. Agree to permissions and prompts and install via network
    3. DOP-Mii asked to restore IOS15 to v523, guide said agree.

    cIOS installer 38r17
    1. Launch the cIOS installer and select ISO36
    2. Install via Network

    WBFS Manager 3.0
    1. Installed on PC
    2. Formatted USB Thumb Drive to test with.

    USB Loader GX 2.0
    1. Installed to SD Card via PC installer

    Ok so after that I loaded a game onto the Thumb drive from within the app USB Loader, tried to load it and it dumped me back to Homebrew Channel. Installed a game via WBFS Manager from PC, ran game, got dumped back to Homebrew Channel.

    Decided to check the Wii Disc Channel and it sees the discs now but still has the same problem as before.

    Wii version is 4.3U and Homebrew was installed via Smash Stack method using Hackmii v0.7, have since upgraded to v0.8

    Please help or redirect me to where I have get help

    You skipped to say hello in the intro section or browsing this site. We can't help you with guides from other sites i hope you understand. Follow our softmod any wii guide to set your wii up properly. If you still have issues afterwards post in the guide's thread and you will get help. Just install stuff on top of old, no need to remove anything to start over.
    Please read below to find most of all links you will need around this site.

    [SPOILER="Welcome"]Hello and welcome to
    Thanks for stopping by to say hello! Have fun in the forum!

    You joined the right site to learn everything about wii modding and hacking.

    General Warnings: Do not update to 4.3! - Do not listen to youtube hacking tutorials - Do not use Pimp My Wii - Get a NAND backup - Install Priiloader - Use the search function!

    There are just a few things you should keep in mind. Be sure that you read the forum rules and understand them. Any discussion about pirated material or cheating will be shut down. Be sure to post in the correct forum section - best suiting the post's content.


    Searching and Posting

    Before posting it is always good to check if the question has been answered already, the chances are very high. Just give the searchbar a shot - further infos in the Ultimate Searching Guide by emuhack.
    Keep in mind you can also search within the thread your are currently reading, look above the posts and find "Search Thread" in the grey bar.

    Maybe you want to try out this as well:
    Just place your query before or behind "site:wiihacks.com".

    The Recommended Tutorials and Guides section will be your main source for information.

    You might also want to check out the Ultimate Wiihacks Index, the Author Index and the Wii Softmodding - Basics and Beyond to get along the site and get to know some hacking terminology etc .

    When you decide to post in the forum, make sure you are posting in the appropriate section of the forum and that you have searched and found no solution. Describe your problem in detail and what you have done before the error occured, provide a syscheck.


    Your Wii


    Clearly you want to know what is inside your Wii. Track down the Wii's serial No. (sticker on the console's back) and just find it out!

    If you got a DVD drive with one of the newer D3-v2 or D4 chips you won't be able to play any non retail wii or gc game disc (game backup or movie dvd). All black/red and recently bought Wiis will have one of those chips.
    You got one? Go for a softmodding USB loading route.

    Go to your wii settings menu and look in the upper right corner and find out which system menu version you currently got installed on your wii. On that you decide which softmod guide to use and hack your wii.


    Softmod Guides

    To initially softmod your Wii use one of the following softmod guides. Just choose the guide which you understand the most. If you want to start over and want to get rid of a previous installation, just install new things on top of old. There is no need to delete everything or virginizing your wii. Make sure you install Bootmii get a NAND backup. Install Priiloader and block disc and online updates.







    To load your game backups from a USB hard drive follow the:





    Modchip Users

    There is also a Wii Modchips Section.

    Sorry for the lack of introduction, GF wants her Wii fixed ASAP. So you don't know what it could be? Anyway I can restore the Wii to factory condition and start over?

    As said just turn to the softmod any wii guide amd start it from the beginning. If you still got the hbc use the option "HBC already present".
    Read the guide carefully, running it through only takes half an hour, but take your time to do it properly this time. Also check out the different usb hdd loading guides.
    Further questions go in the guide your are following good luck.
