    Can AC adapter affect my HDD for running backups?

    Hey guys recently i got my wii softmodded by my friends and initially it worked just fine off my WD HDD but as soon as i brought it home i started getting a DSI error. So i assumed that it was modded run. So I take it to my friends house and run Pimp my Wii there and then everything seems to run fine. No dump errors or DSI nada. So im now im home and i put my system up and sure enough system gets DSI error. Only variable that comes to mind is AC adapter. When it was first modded it was one of my friends cables and wires. When i come home i get DSI error when i take it to modders house everything is fine. Can the AC adapter be affecting the energy the HDD needs to load up cfg? I tried it off his HDD at his house and inital friends house but as soon as i plug my AC adapter and everything else i get error. Please help folks.

    Look around on this site an see if any mods advise anyone to use pimp my wii (they don't). The best way to keep your wii upto date is to follow Mauifrogs softmod any wii guide in my sig below.

    Just a point, When you try your hard drive at your friends place are you taking your console with you. ? are all the consoles modded the same. Now you have found this site you can bin that PIMP stuff and mod your console safely.you will be the envy of your pals. Follow pob3008 advice. Mauifrog is the way to go atm.

    Yeah he told me they were both modded the same way and I took my console and hdd to his home to test it try to repair it. He just uses pimp my wii to update the cios. In regards to Maruifrog is it the same as pimp my wii in regards to putting it on my sd and it auto updates cios or is Maruifrog a rehack of the wii. I'd check now but comp is in use and I'm replying through iPhone. Thanks guys

    No its not quite the same and i would recommend that u read the guide and gain an understanding of your wii, then do the whole guide from start to finish
