    My wii has been hard modded. I have created iso game files and as per other threads, they are the correct size. I am using Ritek dvd-r at 2x using nero. On the disc channel the game title shows, when I press start it says "error - can not read the disc. check owners manual"

    Can someone please tell me where I am going wrong? I am very new at all this.
    Thanks

    your dvd drive is dead i have found it quite common in hard modded (chiped) wiis i would recommend softmodding and to use a usb loaderGX as a new drive is to much reddies

    I can still play original games - would this mean the drive is ok? If I soft mod do I still have to burn the games or do you mean run them from a portable hard drive?
    I am very new to all this and have read alot but I am still confused. Does the wii need to be on my internet connection?

    I'm also experiencing the same problem, but I have Twilight princess hack installed and still getting the error message. Does that mean the wii is completely dead? The chip I have is a Wiikey DC2 chip. Never upgraded the official menu. Still running 3.1u

    kazza77, how old (or how new) is your wii? The newer wii consoles being shipped have cut out the dvd-r capability altogether, meaning it can be impossible to play backup discs, although you can use usb loaders.

    Well then I can only suggest these things (Taken from another website)
    "If your discs are not detected, or give you Disc Read Errors, it might be because of this:

    - Your game was not correctly dumped.
    Make sure you have a 1:1 copy of your game (unscrambled).

    - The game was not correctly burned.
    Make sure you use a proper tool such as Nero to burn your backup.

    - The Wii doesn't like the media
    Make sure you use high quality media, at 4x burn speed. Try different brands of media.

    - The Wii doesn't like the burner your use
    If possible, try another burner. If not, try different media."


    In my opinion I think you should change media brand. Verbatim is good, Sony, TDK & Imation also work good.

    Thanks for the info. Just curious though, only for certain games if I burn the image to the dvd, it'll work but then after some time the error message displays. I've tried memorex, tdk, and a few off brands. Even the games from a year ago no longer work. I'm using Nero to burn the images @ 2x. I have internal TSST burner.

    either get verbatim dvd-r and burn at 4x, or switch to configurable usb loader and hard drive.

    If I go the usb loader, can I just put it on my sd card and load it on my wii? I'm still using twilight princess to load. What usb loader do you suggest.

    why are you even still using twilight princess to load homebrew? you should have installed HBC right away.

    and i already said the loader: configurable usb loader. install a forwarder channel, and leave the configurable usb loader app on the hard drive's FAT32 partition.

    Just to add to that if you are getting these errors on a USB Loader & not in the disc channel, it might be a bad install so it might be worth re-installing the game.

    @cee, when I play my games, I load 3 ways. Hbc, gamma 002 fix, and thru the wii menu. I only ask about usb loader cuz I'm unsure of removing the tph and bricking my system. I would like to use a current loader that will play current and new titles. I'm still running offical 3.2u. Just trying to prevent disaster. Will any usb loader work regardless if tph and hbc installed? Do I need any updates on the hbc also? Thanks for the help.

    twilight princess is suppose to be used only ONCE: to install HBC. once installed, get rid of the exploit; it's NOT necessary anymore and bannerbomb is way easier to use IF NEEDED.

    your loading method is way too long. all i have to do is use my configurable usb loader forwarder channel, and i'm done. i used the same usb loader on a 3.1U wii, and was playing monster hunter tri with no problems.

    you will only brick if you do stupid things, like uninstalling IOS's or using wrong themes. don't install themes and use dop-mii to install the latest non-stubbed IOS; simple as that.

    hi, i have the exact same problem, i have a hardmoded wii witch is softmoded as well.
    i have burn games for quite some time and i never had a problem, but lately some games that i have play wont play anymore, and i have try to burn new copies and wont work. i don't know why, i have try using the USB bootloader, and it gives me the error 002.

    i have try downloaded different isos of the same game and they still don't work

    However other games like fifa ten will play in disk and also USB, just the resolution of the USB its really bad, i don't know how you guys can play it like that.

    any suggestions???

    I seem to remember someone saying that there was a ios 36 update that took care of the 002 error. I think it was version 13b or something, I'm not perfectly sure cause it's been awhile, but try googling. I hope that helps you
