    If there is an error on a DVD +/- R there is nothing you can do, its a coaster.

    Just reburn.

    DVDs are cheap.

    Go with Verbatim.

    I usually get my disks from radio shack , and there usually on sale. I was getting mine at $16 for 50 disks. anyway I know what you mean , I have had that happen to me a couple times , I chalked it up to it just being a bad disk. Or a very small possiblity could be ur burner is going bad.
    The burner in my desktop will no longer burn -R disks dont ask me why , but it still burns everything else.

    What he meant to say was coaster , you know what you but ur drink on.

    DON'T buy from radio shack , coaster is your cheap media problem , Verbatim is the best Media you can use and it's found at best buy for 39.99+tx for 50pc , good luck [​IMG]

    Discs are cheap if you get them in the right place

    User -r discs and burn at the max speed on the discs if the game worked once then it will work again as long as you have a decent disc.

    Coaster, slang for a recordable optical disc which has not been properly recorded or with poor quality content on the disc, implying that it is now only useful as a beverage coaster

    I have a external which would not burn -R disks when using nero or alcohol. When i started burning wii games about 2 weeks ago with IMG Burn I ran out of +R so tried -R which I had lying around and it works. So must be a software issue for me I think.

    I agree that most bad burns are down to disc. Ive burned wii games to a brand of +R and most work and some dont. But if it states on wiki as work I burn to -R and they work.

    assuming it DID work, how do you force NTSC with the new loader?

    if you are using an autoboot channel just hold B while it's starting to enter the config list , or just enter from loader .

    My old DVD drive used to give that to me whenever I tried to read/write a dual-layer DVD.

    It's either your drive, or it's the media. If it's your drive, try burning at 8x; I've had problems with drives that would just error out burning too fast (my CD drive was so old, it was limited to only doing 4x).

    I usually get a pack of these at Wal Mart (don't remember the price but it's not above $30..I think :/). Never had an error since I've used them for my PS2 and now my Wii.

    I prefer NERO Burning ROM, no settings to fiddle with. Just pick the ISO as an Image and it burns perfectly, but i use DVD-Rs.

    Go to fing Office Depot for cheap DVDs, my nearby one has no Verbatim, but TDKs(not on sale) were 17 bucks for 100 DVD-Rs.

    And 10DVD-DL for ~10 bucks.

    Try Nero, it works good... If you are pirating games, just pirate nero 8 ultra. [​IMG]
    And I hate Memorex, they aren't good.

    Check this out, since we are into disc and burning problems, I had like 6 DVD+R Verbatim 16X and all of them work fine, but 15 days ago I bought another 50pk Verbatim +R 16X and the package it's the same but they were made in Taiwan, I waste 8 discs and none of them worked, so, I went to Office Depot to change them, and now I have a made in India 50pk, and guess what.....??

    they still don't work, so I went to ImgBurn and checked the info,

    made in Taiwan says:
    Disc ID: RITEK-R05-01 (I return them and that's all the info I take note)

    made in India says:
    Disc Control Blocks Information:
    SONY DW-G121AHS0D

    Physical Format Information (ADIP):
    Disc ID: MBIPG101-R05-01
    Book Type: DVD+R

    and the ones working I throw away the label so dunno where they're made (shiiiiit da f***** as****e) says:
    Disc Control Blocks Information:
    SONY DW-G121AHS0D

    Physical Format Information (ADIP):
    Disc ID: MCC-004-00
    Book Type: DVD+R

    I have only burnt 1 of the Indians DVD's so I need to do more test, and all of the other brands that I found are made in Taiwan, I bought also a 25pk of Sony and Memorex, are still closed but my faith tells me they're going to fail, IF ANY ONE HAS VERBATIM +R 16X WITH THAT INFO IN IMGBURN PLEASE TELL ME WHERE THEY ARE MADE

    Your problem is that the Burning Program can finish the disc, search in google for a while, I actually am on it and I've found out that the MCC stands for Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, and they're made in Taiwan, and that the MBIPG101-R05-01 are also labeled by Sony, Philips and Imation, adn they're made in India like my label says, geezz Damn rancho that I'm living on

    Office Max is having a VERY GOOD Verbatim sale that ends saturday November 8.

    Verbatim 100 pack DVD-Rs 16x for $24.99

    (MCC 03RG20)

    http://www.officemax.com/omax/catalog/sku....ategory_Id=null

    Or you can go $10 cheaper for the 50 pack:

    http://www.officemax.com/omax/catalog/sku....ategory_Id=null


    The 25 pack in the store is actually $9.99 but online it says $19.99 :/

    P.S.

    These are all made in Tawain and work perfectly as these all have the same media code: MCC 03RG20

    P.P.S.

    Stay FAR AWAY from Memorex. Its only 2nd / 3rd rate. Go with Verbatim as its one of the 1st Class DVD brands.
