Thread: Can my Wii play DVD's?

  1. #1

    Can my Wii play DVD's?

    I am running version 4.3U and my homebrew version is 1.0.8 and whenever I select "DVD" in WiiMC it says that the DVD is unsupported, I have had this wii for a little over 2 years, is it too new to play DVD's? it's white?

    run this syscheck and it should tell you at the top of the report.

    ok, I looked at it and it says that my Wii DOES support DVD's, so why isn't it working?

    The syscheck you used does not check for it. The version I posted for you will show you if it does or not.

    [SPOILER=It will look like this]
    sysCheck v2.1.0b14 by Double_A and R2-D2199
    ...runs on IOS58 (rev 6175).
    Region: PAL
    System Menu 4.3E (v514)
    Priilaoder installed
    The drive supports DVDs
    Homebrew Channel 1.0.8 running on IOS58
    Hollywood v0x11
    Console ID:
    Boot2 v4
    Found 122 titles.
    Found 51 IOS on this console. 5 of them are stub.[/SPOILER]

    I tried out the other syscheck and it says that my Wii DOES support DVD's, so it must be another problem

    hmmm...syscheck may be wrong. If you bought the wii new 2 years ago then it will not play dvds. I guess I should have given you the other syscheck that will tell you the date of the drive, which is more accurate way to tell.

    I got the Wii 2 Christmases ago, 2009, I believe it was purchased on black friday at wal-mart

    so, is it too young for DVD's?, or is something else screwed up? do I possibly need DVDX? I read that it came with the homebrew channel.

    Did you follow the softmod any wii guide? If you did and skipped the install of system menu 4.1, that could be your problem. DVDX is outdated and not needed. but I think DVDs won't play on 4.2 and 4.3

    all I did was use letterbomb and installed homebrew

    Follow the Softmod ANY Wii guide (link below in my sig) and make sure you downgrade to 4.1.
