    Hi.
    I'm using backup loader (wiigator 3 or whatever it is), and am experiencing a problem.
    Whenever I try to load a disk (I use 4.7 GB DVD+Rs), Some wierd text appears (it's two lines of text on top of each other) and I can just make out the words "No DVD"
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I burn the ISOs at 2x Speed with Windows Image Disk Burner, also attempting Img Burn.
    The ISOs are fine, they work on Dolphin, i tried Gamecube AND Wii games.

    Everything comes to the same result!

    Thanks,
    NKarmios

    Can't really help you there as i have no experience with using disk to play games. But what i can help you with is give u a alternate disk loading method by using a HDD. In terms of what a HDD can be used to is way higher than those frilly squishy disk.

    HDD
    Pros
    Easy portable and fits in your pocket(CDDVD doesn't)
    Not easily broken
    Higher storage than disk
    Cheaper over time(Buying 1 HDD is cheaper than buying 100 DVD)
    Higher cap than 4 GB if NTSF format is used
    Easier management of files as all is in a disk
    Can be used to store your personal files
    Can be used on your computer when you dont want to use the wii anymore

    Cons
    Still squishy shit.
    Can get expensive if you want 1 TB or more
    Easily corrupted if you dont safely unplug the HDD via the computer(Oh well the disk dies in a scratch lol)

    Really?
    I'm looking for a SOLUTION, not an alternate strategy!
    How do I ACTUALLY get it to WORK???

    Maybe try using a -R disc instead of a +R.
    It's been a while, but iirc +R discs dont work as good with Wii games.

    Yeah, Probably.
    Maybe +Rs are thicker than -Rs?
    That could explain the wierd noises coming from the Wii Disk Drive.
    Thanks!

    you don't know very much about this. that much is for sure.

    +R's are thicker? that just screams ignorance.

    alternate strategy is basically a synonym for solution, so don't gloss over them when offered. HDD loading is faster, easier, and probably more compatible.

    one would also guess that just maybe a thread whose title is backup loader should be in the backup loader sub-forum, instead of this one.

    Burn your games on DVD-R as instructed. It has nothing to do with thickness (LOL, gave me a good lauch) but trust me unless your burner supports bitsetting you NEED -R discs.

    Also consider using Neogamma instead of Wiigator's Backup Loader that is very outdated. You can find it here: http://gbatemp.net/t219243-neogamma-r9-beta-test. Make sure you have a up-to-date cIOS installed. Look in the section 'Recommended cIOS' in the Neogamma thread.

    You can use +R but don't you have to tinker with the settings?

    You have to make sure your burner changes the booktype for DVD+R to DVD-ROM. That feature is often called bitsetting support

    Lemme guess...when you were a small toddler, you jammed the cubicle shapes in the round holes until it fit, right?

    USB loading is a SOLUTION that ACTUALLY does WORK!!!

    Using backup discs doesn't work on newer wiis (since mid 2008, IIRC): the drive doesn't recognize them. And it tended to be picky even on the old ones.

    If you do have an older wii and you're really too stubborn to go for the stable USB drive, then petspeed's link will help.

    Oh, and check the forums before you post next time, will you? There is a forum section specifically made for it (it even has the link you needed right in the stickies), so you could have saved yourself the hassle of using that many smiley's.
