    Error 1617

    Ugh, so I followed Cile's directions on installing the cios. I just downloaded everything step by step in the 4.3 Softmod guide. So, feeling proud, I insert the disc and start the new Backup Channel installed on my menu.

    I get this error. If I go back the Neogamma inside the homebrew channel, I get error 1208 again. I really need some help with this stuff. Thanks in Advance!

    sounds like a newer wii.. that doesn't work with backup discs..

    Track down the Wii's serial No. (sticker on the console's back) and just find it out!

    If you got a DVD drive with one of the newer D3-v2 or D4 chips you won't be able to play any burned dvd (game or movie), only retail Wii and GC games will run on your console (all recently bought Wiis will have one of those chips).
    You got one? Go for a softmodding USB loading route

    Well this is what it says


    • There is a 75% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip.
    • And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is Combined GC2-D3 with no drive chip.


    What does it mean?

    that all errors you listed and the very high chance that you have a chip which prohibits any backup dvd from being played you are out of luck with your already burned stuff. pin them to your wall or trash them right away
    buy a nice usb harddrive.
    see the softmod basics link for more information or just use the Fat32 loading guide, also linked below.

    good luck in your further steps, cu
