    First of all, hello to everyone [​IMG]
    Second, I'm sorry in advance if I missed any topic that already explained how to fix this... o:

    I've started using homebrew since last week, and I've burnt three games so far. All 3 of them worked perfectly!
    Today I tried playing Samba de Amigo though, and although its in the compatibility list, I just get a black screen. I'm on firmware version 3.2E (but I also tried it on 3.3E, I downgraded to see if it made any difference). Because the compatibility list says YES/NO I've tried both a patched and an unpatched dvd, but they both didn't work.

    So I thought that maybe I could use GeckoOS instead... but when I try booting the game, I just get an error saying 'ERROR: No Dvd'. It does this with the games that work in Gamma 0.3 as well, which seems pretty weird to me... why can't they be read?

    I can't imagine it being a faulty DVD, because I burned it twice and both DVDs didnt work. I must admit that they're DVD+Rs, but all the other games are DVD+Rs as well and they work great.

    So my question is, how can I possibly play this game?

    EDIT: I'm using a PAL Wii, and the game is PAL as well. I've also tried forcing it to PAL in GeckoOS, not that it would do anything, but still. [​IMG]

    first of, dont use +r dvds there is just no point in it
    second, after you have burned it in a dvd-r test it in dvdinfopro to see if you have burned it in the best speed for you (you should burn between 8x and 16x) less than 60% of quality is a coaster
    third, it can just be the iso, so after you do all of that and you really want that game, just "download" it from another source

    hope it was helpfull
