    What else do I need to do?

    I have a wii 4.0U that I softmodded via the tutorial modd any wii, I followed all the instructions and I used image burn set to 4 and even set to 1. I can play off a pen drive but not a usb dvd burner (Liteon) when I do it this way it says its loading ios 236 then it just hangs (usb loader gx). Most of the neogamma settings give me a 1224 error I am so perplexed because I don't know what else to try, I have been searching every where and I don't get it. The only thing that comes to mind is maybe I have that new chipset in my wii. Please if anyone can help me with this it would be much appreciated...One other question is there a external dvd player I can use through usb to play a burned game. I have tried 4 dvd-r (verbatim) dvds burned at 1x and 4x and cant get it to play not only that but they all play through a thumb drive with no problems the games are Mortal Kombat, Sonic olympic games, Avatar (not the kid with the arrow in his head).

    Why are you trying to play through an external dvd burner? Do you have the drivechip that won't allow backups? If that's the case I would just invest in an external hard drive.

    umm....to my knowledge you cannot play off a USB CD/DVD drive, it must be a compatible USB HDD/Thumbdrive/SD...

    Thats the problem I dont know if thats what I have or not. I was looking into a t1 drive but I thought it might be safer for the wii running a dvd from the usb that way i could run back ups from the drive if I have that new chipset. So what do I do to test if it is the new chip?

    there is no way to know what chip set you have with out opening your wii. voids warranty, not worth it. if it was bought within the last few months, assume you have the new one. ...biig...

    Neither is runnin pimp my wii, that thing is garbage and could lead to more problems in the long run after install. Almost all of the staff around here DO NOT recommend running pimpmywii or cIOSCORP, they are both piles of nothing good.

    Your best bet is to just go and get yourself a nice USB HDD, there is a compatibility list on the forums for a good drive, and they can be fairly cheap. In the US i can pick up a 320gb WD passport for a mere 80 bucks, and thats more than sufficient.

    like i said, use pimp my wii, if you think you dont have some ios's, it will automatically dl them and install them, and as long as your hdd is on the compatible list, it will work. a terrabyte is overkill, i use a 320 western digital, hold alot of games, and never any issues. load with usb loader gx, or neogamma r8.

    I just didn't want to have to go out and buy another hard drive in a month cause it was not enough you know. A T1 in best buy is about 160 so maybe i'll go with a 300 or so like you suggested. sucks that I cant run it with a dvd player. I saw someone talking about it on youtube they said it had to be an LG.

    Is there a thread were I can find some ios and if so how do I go about adding them to my sd card? is it dangerous to load all the ios you can find or should I look for specific ones? Thanks guys you all get a thumbs up.

    is it better to scrub games or not?
