    Unhappy Discs suddenly will not play anymore =(

    I've had this problem for about a month now.
    I've been going crazy on lots of guides and threads... this is my last option :/

    I softmodded my wii a while ago and have been playing burned backup discs for about 2 years with minimal problems. (and I've never ever updated from nintendo or discs)

    Now all of a sudden none of my games work! e_e

    1.
    SO, I completely re-did my mod using the guide "Guide: Softmod ANY Wii"..
    I had no errors during installation and my new shop channel works great and everything..
    I also installed the new NeoGamma (9)

    So, the problem: I can run NeoGamma, BackupLauncher, ULoader... but when I try to load the game, I get disc errors. I usually get error 1208, which is a disc read error... but I've played these same discs many times before!



    2.
    SO, I went to the list of IOS's games use, installed IOS55-64-5663.wad (downloaded from NUS) using MultiModManager so that I can run "Need for speed undercover" which I already have. Quick question about installing with MMM: Did I have to install that using WadManager (because you can select the slot?)? Anyway, so I tried to run NeedForSpeed and I got error 1189 "inquiry"... which isn't even on the error index..




    SO, I thought to try something else:
    3.
    I did a sysCheck to see which IOS's I have installed already.
    Here are my results:

    sysCheck Results


    So I see that I have 3 stubs:
    IOS51 (rev 4864): Stub
    IOS10 (rev 768): Stub
    IOS4 (rev 65280): Stub
    ---->From this post, I think I may not need to remove them... or do I? :/

    ----> Another observation from sysCheck: almost all say "NAND Access".. is that ok? :/

    ---->So, should I just download the newest IOS's using NUS, and install them with MMM? Would that help? I can't figure out the problem...

    ---->Currently when I run Neogamma it says it's running using IOS249 (rev 21003).. should I try to force it to be cIOS249 [57] Rev 19 or 20? Or does 21003 include 19 & 20?...

    ---->Also I'm running out of space on my wii! Could that be a reason why it stopped reading my burned backups??

    So, main question:
    Why won't my Wii play burned backup games anymore?

    Sorry guys I'm really confused O.O
    and sad =(
    Please help!

    Thanks a lot in advance!!!!!

    UPDATE: Problem Solved
    Solution = replacing my laser
    I ended up buying a new wii laser part from amazon for $10: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._ya_os_product
    Then I went to SDMods in San Diego and had them install the new laser for $20: http://www.sdmods.com/
    Now my wii works like new!

    THANKS EVERYONE for helping me out so much!
    I had no idea what was wrong >.<
    Thanks again!!!

    If it was working fine and then all of a sudden quit then it might be a hardware problem. Even if it wasn't, installing IOS55 will not help you. When you play backup games, your Wii is not using any stock IOS's. It is using the cIOS only. Running out of space on your Wii won't have anything to do with it either. Again, your problem sounds to me as if you have a hardware issue. It might be something as simple as a dirty lens. You can buy a lens cleaner for a little of nothing and see if that helps.

    I wouldn't worry about that. You syscheck looks good.

    I'm thinking of re-installing cIOS 249...
    Should I use this: cIOS Installer Xr21 by waninkoko?
    hmm.... eh, maybe not.

    I'm going to install all recommended cIOS from this guide
    then if that doesn't work, I'll try using the cIOS Installer Xr21 by waninkoko

    UPDATE: original discs DON'T play all the way through e_e
    so, going to get a lens cleaner kit >.<

    Rev 21 install is unnecessary. Maui's guide installs it. The Loading Backups FAQ of mauifrog's softmod any Wii (if you take the time to read and understand it) tells you Rev 21 is already installed, and in what slots.

    still a bit confused.. but basically, I don't need to re-install cIOS 249,
    alright. I'll try the lens cleaner next.

    Start your own thread. Hi-Jacking someone elses and injecting your problem into it, is against the site rules.

    PlutoRocks:

    My earlier reply has been amended/edited. Effectively Rev 21 is already installed by maui's guide - including slot 249. I failed to realize he updated his guide to take this into consideration, apologies.
