    Hello,

    Trying to solve some #001 errors, I tried to burn New Super Mario Bros (Patched with vki's) to a DVD+R with Imgburn set booktype to DVD-ROM. After burning, the can't read it - "Unable to read the disc".

    I'm not going to burn it again because I only have some media left, its LIGHTSCRIBE. (That's what I've found at home)

    Is there some config that I may have missed?

    Thanks!

    It could be down to poor media, or just a cheap burner. Some Wii's are also picky about +Rs, though my own Wii reads them no problem.

    Lightscribe isn't the brand name of the disk either. It's some technology to etch labels onto the dvd/cd using your laser.

    I'd suggest you trying some good quality dvd-rs and see if they work. Stay away from Memorex and other crappy brands.

    It is LG. Both media and burner.

    Check Imgburn and look for Disc Information on the right hand side with one of the dvd+rs inserted, just before you burn. It should have 'Manufacturer ID:' further down with some code.

    Then check this site and see if its listed.

    yep... the good old days. NSMBW was my first pirate [​IMG] Use DVD-R and burn at maximum speed using PowerISO.

    Oh and use WiiScrubber 1.4 and replace main.dol with Vki's patch. Hope this helps [​IMG]

    Maximum? Everybody asks to burn at minimum...

    Despite my own experience, about two years ago, I burned Warioware at 2x and it wouldn't load up. I burned it again at 8x and it worked. But I don't it wad the problem, maybe the first media wad crapper.

    Today's drives are tuned for high-speed writing. YMMV, but high quality burns can be achieved at high speeds. Why? because high speeds are targeted by the engineers making the drives, low speeds are an afterthought.

    I agree. Most dvd media is also better burnt to at high or medium speed. The only reason you should ever pick a slow burn speed is if your hard drive can't keep up. You can check Imgburn graphs to see the quality of the burn, and play around with different burn speeds to see which gives the best.

    Hey people,
    not really anything to do with this topic in general.
    But I am kind of new in this section. And wanted to ask you guys
    what kind of DVD's I should use to burn my games on. At the moment I am
    using DVD+R. But should I switch to other DVD's, or doesn't it matter?

    Thank you^^

    Switch to a quality-brand DVD-R for best compatability.
