    Black screen / Blue disc light - WII 4.3U - cIOS 6

    SOLVED


    What I am trying to do : I want to be able to run games off a usb drive because my 3 year old son has scratched all my Wii discs. Where I live, as long as I have the originals, it's legal for me to make copies of a disc. ( Yes, I know I can get the discs "fixed" for 9$ a disc at the local game shop, but we already did this. It took my son about 3 weeks to scratch the discs up again ).

    I used this guide : http://www.hacksden.com/showthread.p...cIOS-installer

    I removed a stub from 254 and 251 because another website said they might interfere with the proper functioning of my cIOS.

    I have USB Loader GX installed both as a wad ( not forwarder ) and as an app on an SD card. I've also installed wiithon app on my SD card.

    If I try and launch a game using USB Loader GX ( wad and app react the same way ) : I get the game load screen ( I see the little game animation ) and I hit 'start'. As soon as I hit start, the system goes back to the Wii Menu.

    If I try and launch a game using Wiithon, I see a white bar to indicate loading. When it is done loading, the Wii seems to crash ( black screen & blue light on disc drive ). I have to hard reset the wii ( hold power until red light ).

    I ran sysCheck 2.1.0.b19 and it says :

    Code:

    Report generation on 2014/07/06 ( date on my wii is wrong, but this shouldn't matter )

    I am not sure where to go from here. I found one guide on the internet that said I should rotate through different video modes even though I know my console should only be running NTSC. It didn't change anything.

    I tried all the different hooks ( even though I have no idea what hooks are ) and they all give the same result. But here are the results anyways :

    VBI - Freezes as soon as I select the option
    KBAD READ - White bar loads - black screen / blue disc tray
    Joypad - White bar loads - black screen / blue disc tray
    GXDraw - White bar loads - black screen / blue disc tray
    GXFlush - White bar loads - black screen / blue disc tray
    OSSSleepThread - White bar loads - black screen / blue disc tray
    AXNextFrame - White bar - black screen / blue disc tray
    AUTO - White bar - black screen / blue disc tray

    Usually when I debug computer issues, I start with the syslog on the machine, but I can't seem to find any syslog on the Wii. If anyone knows how I can set my wii to send syslog to a remote syslog server, please let me know!

    The USB stick is a "16 gb" kingston data traveler ( 14 GiB ). I am using a 1gb Centios ( radiocrap) sd card to load up apps such.

    Here is my USB stick :

    Code:
    root@laptop:/home/david# fdisk /dev/sdb
    
    Command (m for help): p
    
    Disk /dev/sdb: 15.5 GB, 15479597056 bytes
    32 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14996 cylinders, total 30233588 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x46dd26e7
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sdb1   *          63    30231935    15115936+   b  W95 FAT32
    I used QWBFS Manager v1.2.0 ( svn release) to prepare my USB key. The filesystem is WBFS. I see only one game in QWBFS, it's the same I see when I connect it to the Wii. I see the game on the Wii before trying to start it, it's when I start it that the wii hangs.

    My home computer is running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Desktop. I am very comfortable with any thing that involves GNU/Linux command line or compiling software.

    I am stuck, I've read about 20-30 different forum posts, but none of them seem to be related to my issue.

    [ Edit 1 : I switched the USB key to FAT32 and added the WBFS file. Now when I start the game it says "Exception DSI Occured".

    [ Edit 2 : I switched the USB key to FAT32 with 64kb clusters and added the WBFS file. I still get "Exception DSI Occured" when it starts. The output looks similar to a panic or BSOD, but without any symbols. So I don't have any output I can google ... ]

    [ Edit 3 : I formatted the USB key with NTFS and added the WBFS file, I am still seeing 'Exception DSI Occured'.]

    [ Edit 4 : I tried using a 2gigabyte Lexar with FAT32 and WBFS file, I still get 'Exception DSI Occured' ]

    I don't know what to do next, please help!

    Thanks,

    Davidtek

    I tested with the Lexar with a WBFS formatted partition instead of FAT32. The game loaded and I played for a few minutes.

    Looks like my 16 gig kingston wasn't compatible.
