    I was burning my SSBB iso and imgburn said that it 'failed to finalise the disc'. All I want to know is what does that mean and is that bad? Will it not play? Other than that, everything went fine.
    Thank You!
    P.S. My uncompressed iso was only 7.92gb. I though is was supposed to be 8+gb. [​IMG]

    Try it out! I have had similar problems as such, and it worked out!! Also, your image is the right size... it is not over 8 gbs (although I though it was supposed at first too)!

    See if you have a "high compatibility mode" setting turned on in the burning options and turn it off. That mode will try to write something like an extra gig of data to the disk for some kind of extra compatibility with DVD readers.....which is unnecessary for an ISO on the Wii. It can cause the disk to run out of space an fail to complete the burning process.

    The disk you burned is probably a coaster because of that. Of course, if it actually runs the game, you should be good anyway, but I doubt it. It may run fine at first, but when you get to a later part of the game, it may crash on you.

    I never did really understand that "high compatibility mode" setting. It has ALWAYS screwed me whenever it was on.


    See if you have that setting on, uncheck it. That should fix the issue. I'd almost be willing to bet that's the problem.

    Ok, will do Rayder. Thanks for the info. [​IMG] This will surely help me in the future too.
    First I will check and see if it works though (of course).
    EDIT: Does anyone know how to turn the high compatibility mode off in ImgBurn? [​IMG]

    Hm, it doesn't seem like I can turn high compatibility mode off in imgburn, so I guess it won't ever be able to finalise. I'll just have to test it out.
    By the way, what software do you use to burn, Rayder?

    Either Nero or Alcohol 120% is what I tend to use. I don't actually have a Wii....I was speaking from experience when copying movies or burning PC games.

    I had the same problem, simply update the firmware of your drive.
