    DISC CHANNEL still won't play

    Hello everyone.I am new here and I am a newbie regarding to wii. I recently updated my wii from 4.0U to 4.3U not knowing that that it would remove the homebrew channel.

    After it was updated, it cannot play using the disc channel anymore. I know that USB loading is more practical but I really need to know how to play again using the disc channel. It always says "unable to read disc"

    I recently tried to softmod it using Removed softmod guide and I think I have been successful in that but still, the disc channel is not working and that is what I am after.

    the HBC and USB loader works perfectly but I need Disc channel to work too so I really need help in figuring this out. HELP please

    Hi,
    i saw you posted your question in the 4.3 guide as well. plese stick to one location, do not make yet another thread if you already asked somewhere.

    as you are refering to a softmod guide from another site, no one can tell you what went wrong or what makes you think backup playing through the discchannel is accomplished by that.

    the 4.3 guide or softmod any wii guide from mauifrog covers that, it is a small portion, called Darkcorp installation, but no one would really recommend that to you as it caused problems way to often. loading games from disc or hdd via a loader is much more convinient.

    <--suggestions helped? press Thanks

    First I apologize for posting two threads. I was just overwhelmed and frustrated.

    Yean I read about darkcorp and it really has a tendency to brick the wii and I don't want to enter such risk as I am a newbie in these stuff.

    Can I ask if that update (4.0U to 4.3U) blocks the disc channel in operating burned discs?
    And is there no other way to bring back the disc channel and use it without using the neogamma?
    Do you think I can downgrade my 4.3U to 4.1U and restore HBC and disc channel?

    Sorry for the persistence but I really want to know what I can do before I send it to the shop as I really don't have that much money

    Your questions lack clarity. If your Wii is @ 4.3, it will play original discs. Provided this Wii is over a year and a half old, it should still play backups via a backup loader (and presuming a successful softmod). Disc channel is for original discs; only DarkFAIL would allow for this.

    There's a downgrade option in mauifrog's guide. This is mostly useful to hardmodders (for out of region disc playing), but it would restore bannerbomb and so forth. As he told you, since your questions pertain to the guide --- they go in the guide, thread will be closed.
