    Question Freeze Problem

    I have softmoded my Wii long time ago and recently I did it to my brother.
    However he's experiencing some strange issues (to me) and I've read a lot, googled a lot and still got no answer so I'm affraid you are my last resort and I must ask for your advice.
    So here's the problem:

    I softmoded my brother's Wii like I did mine (several months before his). However he's experiencing freezing problems and I don't.
    I've done the Syscheck Update from ModMii in both consoles but still no success for him.
    When is playing original games everything is OK but when is playing via USB Loader GX (USB Loader GX v3.0 WAD Channel (UNLR) (boot IOS 249)) every game freeze after a while (5 to 15 minutes of gameplay).
    I'm attempted to say that the problem is with the loader but I have the same loader and mine is OK...

    So, as I tried re-softmod, Syscheck Update and External drive change, I guess I have no option than replace loader but I would like to have others opinion about this issue.

    Here's SysCheck result:

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Did you make sure power saving/sleep mode on the HDD is disabled?

    It's his second HDD and still the same issue.
    However he as an WD Elements 500GB and I have same HDD but 1TB size and I don't have that issue.
    Both are formated with Wii backup manager in order to run WBFS files.

    I saw somewhere in the net some guy made a Sneek Instalation to solve a problem similar to this one and he told he solved it.

    As I'm trying to get some "logical" answer to this I opened this thread.

    I'm waiiting to get the console in my place to run some tests (USB pendrive, Sneek instalation) but I would like to know if someone else had this before.

    Your cIOS are all over the place in their versions. Look at the softmod Any Wii guide in my sig and go through chapter 2 to update them to see if that helps.

    Hi.
    1) I've installed before d2xcIOSV8Final when it started to freeze so I update it via ModMii.
    2) I haven't look sleep mode yet because I'm waiting to get it. However, I'm 95% sure that's not the problem because my brother don't know how to change those settings and I got my HDD directly from the box and I don't get sleeping mode.

    I think perhaps that's a nand problem... I thought it was a heating problem but in that case running games from CD must do the same think and it does not.

    Thanks for everybodys patience but this is really a weird thing (in my opinion).


    ps1: I've installed d2xcIOSV10 sometime ago in my console and it works OK. Now I have updated it with ModMii as well and still no issues.
    ps2: In another console whose owner updated it online I re-softmoded and updated same way and he's playing OK again so I think the cIOS used is reliable...

    Same here. It started happening, at first, once in a blue moon when my son was playing LOTR, but then, it started happening in other places. I did a quick vacuum of the air vents and still it persisted (and seemed to get worse). Usually, it's due to bad sectors on the hard drive. I've ran a chkdsk on mine and haven't had the problem since (of course, my boy's been sick the past few days, so he hasn't been playing his usual lot).

    Basically, you need to run a chkdsk on it (if it's FAT32 or NTFS -- this won't work for WBFS partitions). Disconnect the drive from the Wii, plug it into a Windows box, allow it to be detected and assigned a drive letter. Open the command prompt, and type "chkdsk z: /x /f /r" where z: is whatever the drive letter of that drive is. Give it a good number of hours to run (I let it chug overnight) and after that you should be golden. I find that I need to do that every couple of months to keep my Wii in tip-top shape. Think of it as a Wii Tune-up! ;-)

    It is likely the hdd. Not all hdds work correctly. The same kind but different sizes means they are not necessarily the same kind. I would run the wii with your hdd and see if it happens. If it does not, then it is an hdd issue.
