*EDIT: Sorry for the slightly misleading title, I do not mean GameCube discs, simply DVD-Rs that I have burned GameCube ISOs onto.* I'm not well-versed in using Backup Loaders at all, so I apologise in advance for any incompetency. I purchased my Wii in 2006 around Christmastime. http://gbatemp.net/t...-for-beginners/ I followed Method C (Easiest) to a tee and have not done anything else to my Wii at any point. As a result, I'm running NeoGamma R9 beta 50. I downloaded ISOs of both Mario Power Tennis and Pikmin (GameCube, not Wii) and wrote the image files onto two separate Sony DVD-Rs using ImgBurn 126.96.36.199. The burning process seemed to have no complications apart from the fact that I cannot burn at 1x speed on this laptop; the drive only seems to support 2x at the slowest. I have experienced the same problem with both games. When I put the DVD-R containing Mario Power Tennis into the Wii initially, it made a loud, brief grinding sound (which may just be due to the fact that my Wii is noisy in general; it makes a continual grinding noise -- albeit different from the one I heard when I put the Mario Power Tennis disc in, I've never heard that noise before -- that gets louder when I play certain games). I ignored this, went to the Homebrew Channel and attempted to load the game via NeoGamma. At first I got an error, the code for which comprised entirely of 0s. It then stated there may have been "no drive connected." The second time I tried to load the game, it went a little further, seemed to recognise that the game was on the disc, and the screen briefly went from NeoGamma to an entirely green screen before the whole thing stopped and I was sent back to the Wii Menu after the DVD stopped reading. Frustrated, I tried a third time, and this played out similarly to the first attempt, only the error was more specific and NeoGamma read "DVD+R/bad burn/bad ISO" (or something of the sort). I figured this really did just mean it was a bad burn or ISO (again, I am using DVD-Rs), so I burnt my Pikmin ISO (which was a .gcm file originally, but I had renamed it to .iso) to a second DVD-R. My only attempt to run my Pikmin disc proceeded like the second attempt to run the Mario Power Tennis disc. The last thing I saw in NeoGamma was something about audio streaming before I saw a green screen and the DVD stopped being read and I was taken back to the Wii Menu. It would be greately appreciated if I could know what to do at this point. Googling whether NeoGamma at its current version could play GameCube games without any software that wasn't mentioned in Method C in the guide I linked at the top of this post (again, before carrying out Method C my Wii was old, but with its default settings) was not simple, and I came to the conclusion that I could play them. I have not attempted to burn or play a Wii ISO yet, because I do not want to waste any more DVDs if the problems I have explained will persist regardless of whether I play a Wii or a GameCube ISO. I understand that Verbatim DVD-Rs are the optimal brand for burning and playing, and if it seems likely that that is my problem then that is easily fixed (I simply did not have enough money yesterday when I was buying DVD-Rs to buy Verbatims and not Sonys; I can rectify that). Otherwise, does it seem as though I need to further hack my Wii to be able to play GameCube discs? Or is it just a case of poor hardware in my Wii and not a fault of any of the software/discs? Thanks in advance!
