    Yes (If you mean mini-dvd, cd doesn't work)

    You can also burn (multiple) GC games on normal discs.

    It won't work if you have a newer drive though

    It was the right way; I was even able to play the game burned to the Mini-DVD.

    Do you use your wii A LOT,and change discs A LOT,because i think that there is some problem on your wii not the mini-dvd.even though depending on the quality of the mini-dvd that can happen.

    I have burned a lot of GC games to a usual dvd (TDK +R) and runs great.I've played many games in that way (mario sunshine,paper mario metroid 1-2 ) without a problem.I am curius how a wii can "suck" a mini dvd,cause the slot is for a classic dvd.

    I have a launch wii and it wont play multi game gamecube disc. All the research ive done on it suggests that multi game needs a modchip.

    But in order to play ANY burnt media, you need to have DVDx installed (Comes with the homebrew channel).

    Also, you need the cmios.

    Wrong, DVDx is needed for playing DVD movies only, not for backups

    Where did you get your info???

    If you have a modchip, gamecube backups should just work, multi game disc or not shouldn't matter.

    If you don't have a modchip, you need:
    - A drive that can read DVD-Rs
    - Good quality DVD-Rs(or DVD+Rs and a burner that allows bitsetting)
    - A gamecube compatible cIOS installed(rev19 should do it)
    - A cMIOS
    - A way to boot the MIOS while reading a DVD-R(cioscorp + disc channel or NeoGamma)

    And on softmods it totally doesn't matter if it's a multi game disc or not. (as far as i know)

    They used mini-DVDs to help them defend against piracy of the software which ultimately failed anyway. Back when the GC first came out I recall reading comments from some of the higher ups at Nintendo. They said they expected the mini-DVDs to become to standard size for all disc based media and were hoping to eventually release a hand held that would use the same media as the Gamecube.

    Also the GC could read fullsized DVDs, you just had to modify the case (or make a new one) so that they would fit. Most people opted for the bigger case because it was easier to find standard sized DVD-Rs that worked with the console that it was to find blank mini-DVDs.

    Can a game cube's laser move enough to read a whole dvd? Does this need a gamecube modchip?

    Ah I stand corrected.
    Wasnt aware Cios had anything to do with it.
    Im still on rev 14 because as far as i knew there wasnt a reason to upgrade.

    Guess I have a reason now [​IMG]

    My policy is to upgrade unless there's a reason not to.
