    Put your wii serial number in here-->Wii Drive Chip Database and report back what it says.

    Given the age of your wii, I'd say that it's possible that the wii has had it's disc drive replaced.
    And more than likely, it was replaced with a D3-2 drive which is unable to play Backup disc's.

    Regardless, usb loading is far better, so I recommend you follow this-->http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
    and when finished, you'll be able to play all your backups from a HDD.

    Thanks for reply bmarlo

    I purchased the Wii from a friend i just phoned him and he said it’s never been touched, it’s been in a cupboard for 3 years without been used. i have looked at the little screws covers and a can’t see any damage to them


    When i try to play a game i get, resetting drive then it sometimes says no patch found or no drive connected


    Have i not already done the steps in the softmoding guide when i used MiiXpress351?


    I have a 15gig mem stick i will use if i can’t get it to read disks, is there a guide anywhere for this?

    Sorry for all the questions, i am new to Wii modding

    I noticed you have Homebrew channel v1.1.2...we recommend HBC v1.1.0.
    As for you already having it soft modded , it wasn't one of our guides.
    We don't support out side guides, that why we recommend using our guides and why Bmarlo gave you the link to the Soft Mod Any Wii Guide.

    Run through that guide and see if you get the same error's and post back.

    Since you completed the guide , you should have the Hbc v1.1.0... Post another system check so we can see.
    As for that error make sure your using DVD- r discs ... Verbatim discs if possible.
    Has this Wii been dropped or open before?
    I ask this because of the other error " no drive connected" if so something could have came loose.

    Sent from my IPhone,Jax.

    here is the new system check log. it still says im running 1.1.2

    I have 2 HBC and 2 neogamma channels now, how do i remove 1 of them?

    I also backed my nand up again should i keep both nand backups?




    Spoiler



    I got games working from my memory stick fine, i would still like to get them working from disc if i can. I dont no why the HBC did not downgrade i installed the 1 from the MODPACK.zip and hackmii and letterbomb from hackmii site as directed.

    I dont think its been dropped or anything my friend said it was only used about 5 times then it was put in cupboard and not touched for 3 years. There is no sign its ever been opened.

    Which NAND should i keep or should i keep both?

    Please use the Edit function.

    Go in to your system options then data management , now go to Channels and delete those two channels.

    As for why it's not loading disc's...
    The disc drive could need to be cleaned .
    The drive could have malfunctioned.
    Either way you have the Usb support that does work and is what is recommended.

    You can keep both nand/keys, always safer to have as many as possible.
