and also read the short article that it links to fully.
Not saying that's the problem people here are having, but if you have already tried recording the DVD9 in different quality medias, at different speeds with different recorders and with different recording software and the DVD9 freezes exaclty in the same point as the DVD5 version and not so for other people ... well, you can't discard that perhaps your wii can not read dual layer recordeable discs, maybe not even originals (read post & article above).
If you want to give dual layer support on your wii a try, you could create a multigame gcos dual layer disc and try it out. Just pack a bunch of gamecube games up to 8.5gb with MultiGame ISO Creator v3.2.4F+ or GCOS Multigame DVD9 or something like that was called.
well i cant try the GCOS thing cause i only have DL discs. I live in a smoke free home and everything, i doubt it is the laser. If i get me DL discs i will try it. The wii can read the DISC though the Dual Layer Disc... I can launch it and everything, it is just before the SSBB main menu it freezes, right before the video. If you put ur DVD5 disc in you can see that there is a white screen right before the Main Menu that is where it freezes..
Maybe this release is nuked so that it works on Wiikeys without needing a firmware update, consequently screwing up the compatibility with other modchips like the d2ckey. Anyways, this is pissing me off. We payed prime for this supposedly "superior" and "undetectable" modchip...
