I'll keep that in mind next time I need help. I'm usually not one to bump posts 'cause I feel it annoys people. I understand how bad the traffic can be at times with people posting many new threads with problems, and one more isn't going to make things any better.
My friend recommended turning off the wiimote when I was ripping as to not interfere with the console doing its job. Not sure if that had anything to do with the success this time around, but if anyone else wants to try it, feel free.

Is there any way I can download the restoration channel without downloading straight to the wii. It's kind of internetless

Alright, I have a new hard drive and this game is still giving me black screens.
The guide says use 248 or 250 and then links older versions of 249 and 250, so that's kind of confusing. I tried 250. I am probably going to try and format a hard drive as ntfs ( I been using fat32) because it seemed to work when I tested my rip on his ntfs drive.
To anyone who has it working, what format is your drive and what cios are using to run this game?

You probably just have a bad dump. That turned out to be the problem for me. Try re-ripping the game using USb Gx. I have my cios set to auto, and my hdd is formatted to fat32, and it works fine. Though I am using full isos and not wbfs.

My disc is in excellent condition and I have tried ripping the game several times. How do you use fill isos?

Try using the Disc Loading method on the guide first to make sure your game works. If it does, it could just mean your drive is bad at ripping the discs. Only thing I could reccommend is to try ripping it on another wii. Either way you should be able to play the game via disc loading method, you just won't be able to play it on the go unless you have the actual disc with you.

So are you saying burn a copy of the my rip to a disc to try? I don't understand why my drive would be bad at ripping discs when I have ripped my entire Wii collection with out any issues, even Dual Layer games. I am going to order some Verbatim DVD-R to try.
I guess I have a problem with one other game, Kirbys Epic Yarn (I tested that rip on Dolphin and it was fine, but threw an error when loading on Wii).

Well I just confirmed FAT 32 is the problem. Same rip, same hard drive. Followed the NTFS guide and transfered the game with Wii back up manager and it is playing perfect. It played perfect on the other NTFS drive I tried it on at my friends house, same rip. I tried it on 2 hard drives (maybe even an SD card hooked up to USB) formatted to FAT32 (32 kB cluster) and it black screens constantly and I can bareley get the game to load and if it does it black screens when loading a new area. The only variable is the hard drive format. Strange because most things run best on FAT32 and I have never heard of this anywhere that a game works only on NTFS. I loaded the game no problem and loaded many new areas on both NTFS drives on 2 different wii's and had no issues.
I am probably going to go ahead and try and see if NTFS fixes the issues I saw on Kirby's epic yarn as well.

Curious about how you formatted your drive to FAT32. I've never heard of that being a repeatable problem before. Did you follow our FAT32 guide? or did you use another method to do the formatting? If the latter, I'm curious if you used a method that we recommend to do the formatting if you'd have the same problem or not.

I followed the FAT 32 guide from this site and did the 32kb clusters because I use devolution as well.
When I formatted to ntfs I followed the ntfs guide that is linked to the fat32 guide. When I tested at my friends house I did not format his ntfs drive because he already had stuff on it but it worked fine.
Tonight when I tested the ntfs drive I used USB loader gx and didn't even follow the steps in this guide but ran everything default and it worked fine.
