    Well, the game is burned on DVD-R (The game is Modern Warfare Reflex) and it's PAL version. My wii is Chipped already, though no idea what brand the chip is (ex. Wiikey), so naturally I wouldn't know whether or not the chip has regional override (My wii is CAN/US). Well, I got the game from someone else (DID NOT burn it myself) and when I put it in the wii the disk channel said Unable to Read disks. Can anyone help me?

    PS. How the hell do you delete topics?

    1) Try it with GeckoOS and see if it works.
    2) you cant delete topics

    GeckoOS is used to run backups from other regions(if you have cIOSCorp) and plays original games, with or without cheats.

    your wii might be one of those new wiis which have dvd drives which could not read burned backup games.

    Well as you did not burn it yourself it is quite possible simply a bad burn

    It's most likely the modchip. It doesn't have region-free enabled. This is why it's saying it's unable to be read. Contact whoever you got the wii from and ask what modchip is in it. Also, you really should read up on homebrew and softmods, as it's more modern and updated.

    My Wii is new enough, gotten it only a few months ago.

    I have other burned games that work perfectly with my chipped Wii. When I asked the guy what the modchip was called he said something called Drien. We were taking on phone and he spoke unclear english so it might have been something else, I dunno.

    Mainly the only way to survive on the Wii hacking forum here is to have at least the Homebrew Channel installed...

    System Menu?

    Go check wiibrew.org for how to set up homebrew
