    Unhappy 4.1E Seeing games in USB loader but won't play

    Hi,
    Please help, I did find one post like this but the blamed corrupt games, the game i have work on a friends wii.
    I was successful at soft modding my Wii. I have a hdd full of games and ready to go - usb loader gx 2.2 ios249 and wiiflow will both show the games on the hdd but when you click on them to play they screen goes black then the 12 blank litlle wii windows flash up and it kicks you out to the wii menu. When I try to get to the games thru neogamma r8 it comes up with an error 'no dvd n'
    Also my wii came with a modchip - not sure of the brand or type.

    I have installed
    cios38r17
    priiloader vo3b
    wad manager 1.4
    trucha bug restorer

    I'm lost at this point and can't find a solution. i have been working on this for day and are about to give up

    Thanks.

    Sounds like no IOS58. But post syscheck anyway!

    In answer to the other post I used dogeggs guide.

    here is the system check, thanks for letting me know how to do that!

    It looks like you've installed all the IOS from the "softmod any wii" guide, but
    you haven't installed any of the cIOS!
    I'd say go back to the "softmod any wii" guide and start it from "Homebrew channel already installed"
    And that will get your wii right up to date!
    Oh...I forgot to ask have you tried going into the settings of your loader, and changing the IOS it boots
    from to 250, and then check each individual game to see what IOS it loads from, because most will load
    from 249, so if the game isn't loading from 249, change it to load from 249!

    The wii is working again now thank you so much. But I am still having problems with the games on the hdd.
    When I open usb loader cfg it says
    Partition fat1 not found
    Select a different partition or format a wbfs partition
    Press A to select a partition
    I do that and my hdd is listed as P#1 1863_01 wbfs1
    When I select it all the games come up but still cant play them, I get an error saying the game is not wbfs not a wii game.
    All the games are iso 248 and i changed one to 249 but this didnt help.
    I loaded one of my games and it works fine and is running from 248.
    I used wbfs manager to get the games from my friends hdd to clone to mine (I have aslo been given the original discs...)
    I also downloaded wii game manager tonight and it says the file type of the games are all wbfs
    Any ideas???

    Thanks Narse1979

    I found a thread on the partition problem so that is all fixed and cfg is loading straight into the games.

    BUT my problem still is that the games won't play - WBFS error: not a wii disc

    And yes I could rerip them all but there is about 70 and I was hoping someone might have a quick fix i could try??

    thanks
