    Hello,
    I’m having an odd problem burning Wii iso’s.

    I have a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR 110 v 1.23 and have never had any problems when burning Xbox360 iso’s, but for some reason every time I try and burn a Wii iso it results in a coaster [​IMG] .

    Here is the odd problem, on my laptop Slimtype DVD A DS 8A1H WH66 burner I have no problems burning Wii iso’s or Xbox360 iso’s. All Wii iso’s burned from my laptop play on my wii. I get absolute success [​IMG] .

    I use the same exact method on both laptop and tower pc:
    CloneCD at 4x speed, I’m using the same exact version on both laptop and tower pc.
    Verbatim DVD+R
    My OS for my laptop is Vista and the OS for the tower is Media Center Edition

    Here where it gets even stranger, I have tried swapping out my Pioneer DVD-RW 110 v1.23 with another Pioneer DVD-RW 111D 1.23 and I get the same results. I’m able to burn Xbox360 iso’s with success and get nothing but failures with Wii iso’s. I’ve even tried updating the Pioneers firmware to version 1.29 and I get the same results [​IMG] .

    Sorry for the long winded post but I can’t seem to figure out why my laptop is having no problems burning Wii iso’s and my tower PC is. And my apologies if this is in the wrong section.

    Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks! [​IMG]

    Only thing I can think of is maybe the Verbatim DVD+R (they have funky comnpatibility with wii to begin with, at least most of +R format does) and maybe you're getting away with it with one burner, but the other burner might just not be cutting it with that format. Have you tried a DVD-R?

    i always used Verb DVD+R for all my wii/xb360/PS2 burning and ive only ever used a pioneer 110D and pioneer 111D

    I use MediaCodeSpeedEdit to patch the firmware to booktype to DVD-ROM and use Imgburn to burn, but that shouldnt matter. Does your laptop dvd burner do -rom booktyping at all?

    The wii drives vary in sensativity - though some wii's do play DVD+R , its been proven (by me testing in over 100 wii's) that DVD+R discs that play on some Wiis will not play on others with the exact same software installed - DVD+Rs are NOT reliable on a wii

    I have read the guides, but I find it weird that DVD+R's work fine in my Wii when burned from my laptop burner and not from the pioneer.

    Your laptop drive may default the booktyping to -r. Just a thought.

    It should work, I use that same Pioneer drive, 106, 111, 112... ive used pioneer since the A02 (102)! They work perfectly.

    I always use IMGBurn (the sequel to DVDdecrypter)...... get IMGBurn, its free... see if that works. I dont change any setting (booktype, etc). Just go to "write" mode on IMGburn. Select the ISO, then pick 4 or 8 speed (I always use 8x), and hit the burn icon. TIP, always verify, just to be sure your media is good.

    Probably your laptop burner sets booktype to DVD-ROM, therefor the backups work on you wii.
    My wii is also picky about +R's and i have the exact same problem, only that i get bad ones on my laptop and good ones (with dvd-rom booktype) on my PC.

    Either just buy -R (which will work regardlessly of the booktype) or just burn on your laptop [​IMG]

    Like I said, you could be JUST lucking out getting away with using DVD+R to begin with, but then switching up the drive AND using a sketchy format that the wii has issues with could be your compound problem. The Drives and Disc format might not be a big issue but when put together they might.

    Humor us and yourself and try a DVD-R disc and see if it eliminates your problem.
