    Guitar Hero 5 original disc wont load

    I've been searching around and haven't been able to find my problem anywhere. I'm hoping someone can help. I bought Guitar Hero 5 NTSC and am on 4.1. I am using coverfloader 1.2a with CF R9?? that allows me to play the backup version of GH5 and RB2 The Beatles. I recently bought a 4 gig SanDisk SDHC and found that I need to play off of the original GH5 disc for the Wii to recognize. I am also trying to use the GH5 and GHWT DLC's. Since I did purchase GH5, I didn't think there would be a problem. I loaded the disc and went to run it from the original disk menu and it goes to a black screen. Everytime I google or search for GH5 black screen or disc wont load it talks about the backup discs. Why can't I get the original disc to load? Other original discs are loading, and I can play the backup from coverfloader...

    At one point I had done the disc channel softmod to allow me to play backups from the channel. Can someone please help?

    This is probably because you have a program that bypasses disc updates which since your trying an original copy game using the disc channel, that will cause that to happen. I have that problem when I try rockband 2. That game has a disc update and my starfall wont let me play that game using the disc channel. I need to instead run it using a backup launcher.

    What backup launcher are you using? I just tried loading via backup launcher 0.3 gamma with 002 and sound fix and loaded the game. It still went to a black screen?

    First off get rid of that loader. Eventhough I still have that loader (dont use it anymore), you need to start using neogamma along with cios38 rev14. Anyways, there are a few ways to get that game to work though. First youll need to install ios56. You can find that wad on this site by searching for it. If you know how to use wad manager, then youll know how to install the ios. You "might" be able to get that game to load using neogamma once ios56 is installed BUT you might not be able to. Since I only have the guitar for this game, I use softchip to load it. Softchip is another loader you can use to load games, but its basically for rockband titles and some GH games. Anyways, there is a guide on this site titled "so your rockband instruments wont work". Read up on that guide. That guide is exactly how I installed mine BUT instead of installing the ios as ios249, I instead installed as ios232. Instead of installing softchip as ios249, I installed as ios232.

    I guess I need to look into my cios. I followed different instructions to allow me to boot from my hard drive. NeoGamma did not work, I will have to look into softchip.

    You can play it from the USB Loader GX disc loader, but you will need to install IOS222. The USB Loader GX disc loader will also block disc updates, and the latest version of USB Loader GX for disc loading, but I think you need a WBFS hard drive plugged in (or USB memory stick/WBFS format) for usb loader gx to boot up.

    Well I've definitely got the wbfs hard drive hooked up. I'll try USB Loader GX. I really like using coverfloader, but if GX will work I will gladly switch over.

    find out what version of ios56 you have installed. that's probably what's preventing you from loading the game direct, as mentioned.

    Thanks everyone for the quick and multiple responses. I needed to update ios 56. Now that I've done that everything is working fine!

    Thanks again
