    Okay.. I followed all the instructions and I'm still getting the same message as whohaw only mine has "No DVD" overlaying the "DVD Identify Error". I even uninstalled dvdx and downgraded (re-did the steps obviously) to make sure it wasn't 3.3. Am I burning the disk wrong? I'm using Alcohol so I figure it should be okay, unless I'm not using the right data type.

    I know it can play DVDs because I've watched several on it with MPlayer.



    EDIT: SUCCESS! I just had to get my hands on a different backup loader. WiiGator's isn't ready yet...

    EDIT: I lied... They both load, but sit at a black screen... A typical problem as I see in other threads...

    In front of computer.
    Did you use DVD+R or DVD-R?
