    I recently softmodded my wii but cannot get any backups to work. To insure that I had installed it correctly, I borrowed a backup game from a friend who had a wiikey installed.
    The game is burnt on a DVD+r.
    Is there any reason this would work on his modded wii but not my softmodded one?

    DVD+R ...read the forum ffs...

    maybe if you told us how you softmodded, and what games instead of expecting us to be mind readers you would get somewhere.

    I installed wiigator backup loader v0.3 gamma. The game is mario kart wii. I read the forum but it said that rarely you could get a DVD+r to work. I assumed that if it worked on a modded wii it would work on mine.

    error code 324 on every game I've attempted. Lego Batman was also attempted on a DVD+r. Downloaded from mywiidownloads.com. not sure what you mean by "firmware version location"

    Yes, Virginia, it's possible to make a copy of most anything you've already burned.
    DVD+R = FAIL + Link to site = FAIL^2 + Paying for downloads = FAIL^342789023489042389312890123

    Seriously, search. DVD-R seems to be the way to go. I tried a dvd+r just for the hell of it didn't work for me. Sony DVD-R burned at 1x with image burn, no problems yet.

    Again, search. There are sooooo many threads on the subject.

    if dvd+r doesnt work(it does on some wii's, mine actually) try dvd-r

    also make sure your softmod is properly installed. what version of the wii system menu do you have? 3.4? need to downgrade to properly install whatever backup launcher you are using.

    also, paying to download illegal copies of games is about the stupidest thing i've ever heard of. if you're going to pirate software... don't pay for it =| that defeats the purpose of not... paying for it.

    Hah yeah I was looking at the site too.

    I just imagined its links to torrents, half of which are probably dead.

    What a scam.

    i thought only 70 years old grandpas fall for this kind of scam.
    my grandpa is 72 years old and he fell for this kind of scam (for tv shows) a year ago.

    TV shows ? where can i sign up ? [​IMG]

    I think his main problem is the DVD+R - once he gets some DVD-R discs they may work.
