    Few questions to clear some stuff up

    Hello and Thanks for reading! I've spend days reading the forums and they are a great resource. i think im on the right track however i have a few questions. I used the soft mod tutorial on my wii running 4.1u and everything worked as expected. At the time i was not connected to the internet and there were no auto updates to my ISO's.

    I have an external HD that plays games perfectly - no problems.

    I have a few different games burned onto DVD that either play for 5 minutes then crash or just crash when i try to load them. So... from what i understand ISO's are completely independent from the system version (ie 3.4 -4.1u)

    From what i can tell i'm missing the latest ISO's correct?

    Can i load Dop-ISO now to update via internet or is this a really bad idea?

    My friend has a huge list of ISO's ranging from IOS9v778 - IOS61v5405 he says i should just load all of his ISO's. Is this a bad idea? I have WAD manager 1.5.

    Some wad files have a -64- in the name, example IOS33-64-v1040 -vs- IOS33. What is the significance of the 64?

    Maybe you can try different cIOS'es to load the game. In stead of 249, try 222 or 223. It's in the options menu of the USB loader. And maybe it will help if you load the ISO onto the HDD and then play them.

    And updating or changing the IOS of the Wii is a bad idea. It can totally brick your Wii since the version of the IOS is firmware dependent.

    If it's possible you should stay on firmware 4.1. 4.2 is just bullcrap from nintendo to block HBC and stuff.

    Can i load DOP-IOS now to update via internet or is this a really bad idea?

    Fixed.
    Black screens in games are almost always because of an outdated IOS revision. Updating a non-SystemMenu IOS that the game uses is usually what's required. This is not unsafe and will not brick your console. Never uninstall an IOS below 200 as this may cause your console to brick.

    Go to this thread and look up your game and it's IOS on the list: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-use-run.html
    Then download it using DOP-IOS or by using this guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...ownloader.html

    You were correct in that games are independent of firmware revisions. But you should not load all of your friend's IOS'. You want to update what your console needs, not his.

    Here's an article that might help you understand a little bit more about IOS and cIOS files: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...explained.html

    And finally, if all of your games are working fine through USB, including the ones you also have burned to DVD, then what you have may not be an outdated IOS issue. The discs could be dirty or scratched enough to cause playback issues, or it might just be that your DVD drive is starting to go out.
