    dvd no longer reads discs after 4.2 update

    Hi everyone,

    I made the stupid mistake of updating my system to 4.2e. I was initially on 3.2e and running HBC and softmii. However when I updated to 4.2 it wiped off hbc and now won't play any discs, even original discs. I have tried to downgrade it back to 3.2 but still it does not play anything.
    Any ideas what is the problem. Is it just a coincidence and the DVD drive has gone, or is it something that can be fixed by installing/uninstalling various things.

    Softmod again using the 4.2 guide and it will work again

    I used shadowsonic2 guide for softmod, and although it all seemed to install fine, my wii is still not recognising any discs. The original discs go to a black screen saying "ERROR, consult the manual", and the backups say "? Disc not recognised".

    still no joy. Everything from the guide seems to install ok. Is there anyway to check that it has installed properly, ie. I have the correct IOS's / cIOS. Also when I try to update through nintendo now the HOMEBREW CHANNEL does not get removed.
