The Movie-Ch Install Disc (internally known as the "MovieCH Import Disc") is a disc used in Nintendo repair centers in order to install the Wii + Internet Channel on Wiis being repaired which previously did not have the channel installed.

The disc was originally discovered through an image posted online (which also showed the DiscUpdate Disc), and was soon revealed to be for sale on GameDealDaily. It was purchased by several people; eventually, and they managed to resurface the disc (all copies came scratched to the extent that only about 50% of the disc was readable) and got a full, clean 1:1 dump of the disc.

Disc information

Update partition

The disc contains a mysteriously corrupted update partition, but a clean data partition containing the usual Wii disc files (apploader, FST, main.dol, etc.) and a files/ folder containing a viewer/ folder containing the WAD that the disc's main.dol installs.

Disc behavior

The disc checks the free NAND capacity and NAND integrity, then installs the HCGE.wad file in the "viewer" directory to the NAND; if installation is successful, it then launches the installed title. If installation is unsuccessful, one of the below error screens are displayed. Note that the "viewer" directory is also the standard directory for Nmenu operations, indicating that the program on this disc may be related to Nmenu. "viewer.wad" is also the name of a BroadOn format WAD found on RVL_DIAG, containing NDEV Menu 1.00.
