    Question Softmode 4.3 error code when playing original disks

    Softmodded Wii via BatHaxx on a 4.3, plays games from USB drive.

    However will not play from DVD, the error code is .... ERROR! (ret = -2)

    Can't seem to find any reference to this anywhere.

    Help!!!

    Are these burned games or original disks? I can't find any reference to it either. Weird. Are you sure it's -2?

    So, just to verify, you are saying that the disc channel gives you a ret -2 error when playing original discs?

    Yes, that is what I am saying.

    I am also unable to backup orginal games from DVD to the attached HDD via cfgUSBLoader.

    However I can play previously backed up games from the HDD via cfgUSBLoader

    Thanks

    If I use the Disk channel (the one in the top left of the screen) that a normal non modded Wii has I get an Error. No error number. Just says eject disc and look at the Wii manual.



    If I use the USB loader channel then the games from the HDD drive work fine.


    If I use the USB loader channel with an Original wii disc in the drive and I press (+) on the controller it attempts to read the Original disc and I get ERROR!(ret = -2)

    It sounds like your laser is failing.

    Yeah that's the only thing I can think of. I highly doubt it's a software issue as nothing should make it unable to read original disks. I assume said disks work on other Wiis (either virgin or modded).

    Hi

    I kind of agree with what you are saying, its just a heck of a coincidence that the laser starts to fail a day after the softmod.
