    Howto read backup games on Wii with Softmod / Homebrew channel?

    hey. i have a new wii with 4.1e
    I have installed homebrew channel on my wii.

    I followed this guide: 4.1 and below Firmware Softmod Guide - All Systems Except For Korean (LINKED 4.2 GUIDE)!

    I have 3 neogamma versions installed on my wii (2 in the Wii Menu and 1 in the HBC menu)
    The Neogamma channels on the wii Menu when i start it freezes the wii and gives me black screen.
    The version of one of the Neogammas in the Wii menu is R8 Beta 15, the other is unknown.
    The version of the Neogamma in the HBC channel is R8 Beta 12, it starts,
    but it wont read any backup games, dvd-r, i think it was error 1054.

    I have tried two different games.
    Original games do work from neogamma that i run via HBC.

    I have neogamma R8 b15 as wad installed on the Wii menu, but it wont run.

    I also installed many different IOS*** back and forth thru the guide, but have i missed something?

    What version of neogamma should i be using? Should i run it thru HBC or thru the Wii Menu?

    Can anything go "wrong" by mixing in the HBC? Does it effect my Wii directly or only the HBC channel?

    Should i use something else then neogamma to read backup games from DVDs?

    Thanks! Lovley forum!

    One potential problem with your new Wii is that it may have the D3-2 chip installed. That chip prevents the Wii drive from reading backup discs. When you did have a version of NeoGamma work-did it show on its main screen IOS249rev14? If so, then we can be comfortable that you were successful in installing the latest customized IOS (cIOS). The 1053 error shows up with either bad media or the D3-2 chip. Best best to see if your Wii is one that just cannot play a backup disc: install a NeoGamma version that you bootup from HBC. Look to see IOS249rev14 on the botton of the screen. Burn a game ISO using ImgBurn or Nero software, burn to Verbatim or Taityo Yuden DVD-R blank discs at a burn speed of 4X. If the disc fails to be read, try again at 2.4 or 2X if your settings allow that and finally at 1X, again as settings allow.

    If all burns fail, you can try again on another DVD burner and with another game ISO or just give it up and use a workaround. The most common of the workarounds to the D3-2 chip is to load and play from an external USB HDD: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-usb-hdd.html. Other workarounds are the WODE (see the Homepage of this site for more info) and also one can replace the Wii Drive's motherboard (obviously with one not using the D3-2 chipset.

    +1 on everything here with an emphasis on a few things.
    1. Make sure it's a DVD-R that you're burning to.
    2. Mine won't work on anything over 2X burn speed.
