    Hey

    I just downloaded Star Fox Adventures for gamecube. I want to play it on my Wii. For my Wii games, I burn the .iso file, but the Star Fox Adventures file I downloaded is a .gcm file. Does anybody know how i can get this to play on my Wii?

    Thanks

    Rename it to .iso, they're the same thing.

    Then it should burn correctly.

    It probably has a chip.

    It is currently not possible with softmods and backup loaders.

    Hey,

    Yeah, I have a modded wii also, got it modded from the same guy my friend did.

    Anyways, i did Diffusion said, renamed it to .iso
    I get the intro and into the main screen with the play game / options / audio etc.
    When i go to "play game" it says "An error has occurred. Turn the power off and check the nintendo gamecbe instruction booklet for further instructions."

    What did i do wrong? :wtf:

    Either your got a bad iso. Or you didn't burn it right.

    Are you using a DVD-R (NOT DVD+R).

    And are you burning with IMGBurn at a low speed like 3x?

    oops wrong thread xD

    Edit: It might help anyways. I had a similar problem with a real copy of Naruto 4 for GC. There's a trick I used to get past the error.

    # First launch the game using whatever method you use.
    # Once you reach the main screen DO NOT press start
    # Take the disc out of your Wii
    # Place it back into your Wii
    # Press start and enjoy Naruto 4 (in your case whatever game you have)

    Hey, yes, I am using IMGBurn at a low speed.

    However, I am using DVD+R, do burns not work with +R?

    You must set the booktype in your burning program to DVD-ROM whenever you use DVD+ media.

    Is this only for GameCube games? Because I burn Wii games with DVD+ media w/o changing any settings & it works fine.

    I believe that Starfox is one of the games affected by an audio bug. If you have a wiikey and have it updated to play a retail Smash Bros, chances are that it removed the fix for the audio bug for gamecube games.

    DVD+R should be fine.... we're years beyond booktype mattering.

    Bad disc is possible, but unlikely. Discs tend to get flakey towards the outer edge - gamecube games get nowhere near this.

    My tip would be to use multi game iso creator http://www.tehskeen.com/forums/showpost.php?p=17439 It greatly improves gamecube compatibility on the wii - especially for games from another region.
