    I need help with my backups. Iknow my Wii can play backups fine, because I borrowed some from a friend once, but I tried burning my first backup yesterday ,Tales of Symphonia Dawn of The New World. It was a NTSC 1:1 copy I also burned a 1:1 Wii Music NTSC copy and that didn't work. Then I tried patching Tales of Symphonia to IOS249 and it still wouldn't work. So I wanna know what's wrong with my backups. I burned them using Nero6 at 8x, Verbatim DVD+R (White Inkjet Printable disc ver.1.3), and my DVD burner is LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-16332 BSOY driver version 5.1.2535.0. I checked the disc quality with DVDInfoPro (97.69%), and I checked the content with ISOBuster. Everything seems fine so I don't know what's wrong... Oh and I alos load my backups using WiiGator's BackupLauncher 0.3 gamma.

    try a dvd-r, they have better compatibility and force NTSC as well, your wii is NTSC right?
    and you can burn at the speed that it says in the dvd, i have 40 games burned and always did that , never add a problem.
    good luck

    Yeah, my Wii's NTSC. I'll try burning at the speed it says on the discs tomorrow, because I gotta get off the computer now, and I won't be able to go get DVD's for a while. =/

    EDIT: Also, quick question, what's the default IOS that Tales of Symphonia is set to boot from?

    Its amazing how many times people have been told on this site to burn using DVD-R as the compatibility rate is exponentially higher. And still every few days an idiot comes along and wants to know why *insert brand name here* of DVD+R doesn't work on the wii. Go to the store and spend the fucking $20 on a 50-pack of DVD-R. If you can spend $50 on a Wii game you can spend $20 to have 50 Wii games...

    Well excuse me for being curious, I jsut assumed it would work because I read an article about burning Wii games and it stated that DVD+R's worked. So that was my logic there. Also, I'm not an idiot, as I did google first and followed a guide.

    I have had problems with backups. I burnt Boom Blox, Paper Mario and Wario Shake. All PAL versions on DVD-R - and they work fine. I burnt No More Heroes and De Blob - all PAL versions on DVD-R and they won't work. I have tried backup launcher 0.1, 0.3beta, 0.3gamma and the gamma for the iso247 - no luck. It seems like I had a run of luck and now nothing I do works.

    Any ideas?

    I have Star Wars TFU, WII Music, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart, Super Paper Mario, Boom Blox all PAL all on DVD+R. No problems (except for it all being crappy games except star wars wich was too short and mario kart.)

    I did read all the posts saying you soulkd use DVD-r but I had a p[ile of DVD+r's lying around I never use anyway so I figured I'd try a game on those, and they all workde so far.

    Except...

    I got a No More Heroes backup, filename say [NTSC - PAL]. Doesnt work, if I try to load it it does give me the game ID then shortly shows a green screen (if I force PAL 60) and then a black screen, and doesnt load beyond that.

    If I force NTSC it's stuck at the green screen. I'll try DVD-R as soon as the shops open but I honestly don't think thats the problem. Could it be a region issue? The only homebrew I've got is backuplauncher 3 gamma on wii menu 3.4e, I dont have any region free thingys

    speed and and brand name don't matter. All you need to do is , burn as fast as the disk can burn and use -r disks , its that simple. Don't forget though , some games will still need to be decrypted , like shaun white is one of them.

    You can use your dvd+r"s, but try changing the booktype to dvd-rom.

    Some people say that DVD+R can damage the lense. Don't know if it's true, anyway...
    I've burnt all my games on Sony DVD-R, never had any problem.

    To Leslia : I burnt the NTSC-PAL version (from espalwii) on Sony DVD-R with IMGburn. It works like a charm.

    Ok thanks for the reply, I've got the same version from espalwii. Do you have a PAL or NTSC wii? and do use any of the force pal/ntsc options from backup launcher?

    I'll reburn on DVD-R anyway

    No its a stupid rumour that people keep on repeating - ITS NOT TRUE.


    DVD-R discs work on pretty much every wii everywhere as long as they are a semi reliable brand. Speeds vary depending on the drive used, the discs used and also the wii itself.

    DVD+R when the booktype is set to DVD-ROM work on some wii's but not all - its a gamble. I have tested the same DVD+R disc on 50 wii's that i have modded it has worked on 15 of them and failed on the rest. Some wii's will read them , some wont , but dont base your not working games on the fact that dvd+rs work on some wii's
