    Hey All,

    This is the first time I ever had a problem with a disc. I just bought this console brand new 2 weeks ago and have tried about 20-30 backups with no problem. Today I burnt SSBB (U) to a Memorex DL disc but got the "Unable to read disc". The drive isn't even spinning up to read it.

    Should I try doing the layerbreak fix?

    ps. I live in a smoke free home and make sure there is never any dust or dirt on my discs before I put them in.

    What region is your wii?

    Check your burn speed, your image file and your wiikey firmware.

    FINALLY SOMEONE who says SOMETHING about the D2CKey and SSBB! So is anyone ELSE having issues getting the two to work?

    Region is NTSC. My burn speed was 2.4x, image file used was the WIZARD release and its not a wiikey, D2CKey.

    I just don't get it, brand new out of the box Wii can't read dual layers??. I've burnt many dual layer movies before so its no problem with my burner

    I have read about different types of D2Ckeys so maybe it is your type ( launch chip or later on). Make sure you set layer break, the wiikey does not need I think all other chips do, and burn slow on good media such as verbatim 2.4x dvd+r DL.

    Update is fine with all chips ATM.

    Ouch, that sucks man. Check your connections to your chip, so far any official Wii system update has yet to give the general population any problems with their modchips.

    The SSBB (U) update on NTSC Wii + D2Ckey worked fine over here, I can still play other burned Wii games.

    I was able to do the update and create a save file and then it went to a white screen. After the white screen, it now won't recognize any DL smash bros disc. My other backups work perfect. I've burnt 3 copies of Super Smash.

    One with layerbreak
    One just normal
    One with 1x burn

    Still no go. Sigh, I guess I will have to send mine in. Before I do, I'm gonna go out and try verbatim media. I've been using Memorex

    Exactly the same problem here. I suspect cheap discs are the cause. If my Verbatims don't work, I'll be pulling the thing apart to clean the laser and adjust the laser power. Will post back here with results later. [​IMG]

    Layer break won't make any difference if it's dying with "Unable to read disc". I burnt 2 discs (one with layerbreak, one without) and neither would read. You know you've got layer break problems if you get the green screen errors in-game afaik.

    Edit: here's a video of what mine does when I use the Imation discs: http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwR5V_zizzw

    There was some random problems with DC2key when the jpn version came out. white screen etc. random.
    Could be just wii with bad laser or something.

    Tried SSBB for about an hour this morning before work, still a no go. I'm glad it worked for you.

    This may help D2CKey people. I tested a few methods of burning SSBB and here were the results. All were burned @ 2.4x.

    Cheap DVD+R DL Media:
    - 4/6 attempts failed the burning process with an illegal instruction error, CRC check or finalise disc errors.

    - 2/6 succeeded the burning process. 1 was burned in 'Incremental Mode' which can be set in the ImgBurn v2.4 settings. The other was in DAO mode.

    - Both ran just fine on the Wii until the point where you are asked to create a save file. After that there was a white screen ( on both disks ) and nothing else happened. I left it for an hour or so and still nothing so I assume these disks are coasters.

    Fujifilm 8.5GB DVD+R Dual Layer:

    - 2/2 succeeded. Both had a smoother burning process then the cheaper brand media, and no high pitched noises from the DVD burner until completion. Both were burned in DAO mode, which is the default in ImgBurn v2.4.0.

    - One was burned with automatic layer break calculation. The other with a manual layer break @ 2084960.

    - The one with an automatic layer break had the same white screen symptoms as the cheaper disks. The one with the manual layer break worked and it plays as it should.

    So, I think it's safe to say that the manual layer break @ 2084960 is a must for D2CKey & NTSC Wii.

    I also really recommend getting a higher quality brand media. The el-cheapo brand had a lot of clicking and spinning sounds when booting even the successful burns, while the Fugii media reads like a retail disk ( in terms of the noise coming out of the Wii the drive ).

    Chances are you can probably get it working with a cheaper media but you might get several coasters before a working disk, probably depends on on your burner. Just remember to set that manual layer break.

    WOWWWW!. I can't thank you enough gshock. I went out and bought a 15 pack of Fujifilm DVD's today for $15 (on sale at Futureshop).

    I burned at 2.4x with IMGBurn and set the layer break, as soon as I popped the disc in, the drive spun up and read it automatically. WHAT A RELIEF!

    I've already burnt 4/4 of DVD's and all have been flawless with the layerbreak set.

    I've learnt my lesson, never ever buy Memorex again!

    I have the same problem with the PAL D2CKEY where it says "Unable to read the disk".
    I burned it on a Philips 2,4x DVD+R... so now I am going to try the Verbatims.
