    I'm trying to burn Animal Crossing city folk using my HP DVD Writer 300n which only reads +R(W), Imgburn, and TDK DVD+R 1-16x Speed 4.7GB disks. I used Nero to set the booktype to -R and tried burning it to imgburn. I set the speed to 8x, everything was working fine until i got to 99% and I got an error that said

    I/O Error!

    If I were you I'd try a guess-and-check.
    Maybe try a different disk, DVD-Rom Booktype, or a slower burn speed?

    I used to get an I/O error and it was because my laptop was too overworked. I turned it off, waited for 10 minutes and started to burn it right after the startup.

    My info could be wrong... but that seems to be a pretty old external drive only capable of 4x write.
    I was getting similar errors with a [not as] old Lite-on drive with a 12x max. I had to turn the write speed down to 4x to burn successfully. I chose to upgrade the drive.

    You can try upgrading the firmware, which it seems you haven't done since your output says 3.11, and see if it helps. Version 3.20 is the latest, released in 2004.

    If slower speed and "latest" firmware don't help, then buy a new burner.

    I had this problem when burning X360 games dl onto dvd -r dl, searched off the god damn net only to find out it was a burner issue, other burner solved it all(eventough it also was a 2006 burner)

    but first update you firmware to be sure

    My old one was probably from around that same era. New one was around $30 shipped. A little more than what a 100 pack cake box of blank media costs. Worth every penny, burn 12x/16x with no issues.

    @OP - Just make sure you get a drive that supports bitsetting, since I'm thinking you most likely have some +R media you don't want to go to waste.

    Animal crossing is a really small game, you could get 1000000 errors after 20% and it would run fine. But you should got to know that the Wii needs near perfect burned discs for some games. Do you really expect a burner which doesn't even read DVD-Rs to do that job?

    Indeed. Eventually the process will complete, tried the same thing with Mario Kart Wii. Seemed to work fine till I went to start a 2 player game and got an error.
