    I ve been having problems with my Burns using Imgburn.

    Basically, I burned a ISO a few times onto several DVDs. I am able to play the game but it seems that sections of each DVD are currupt.. because while things are loading i get the Wii error message "Unable to read disk" if i remove the DVD and put in a different copy it continues on.

    Im thinking it might be a problem with the Software or even perhaps my DVD Rom is going belly up. But before i invest in a new ROM.. i'd like to try everything i can

    ANy suggestions.?

    Also, My Wii is a JAP wii, but my burner is locked into REgion 1 . If i understand it correctly, this should have no effect being that REgion setting only really effects reading not writing.. (am i correct?)


    Any help is most appreciated

    same problem here, tested it on two disc, always got the can't read disc error [​IMG].
    all the old ones still work just fine - very odd.
    I even reflashed my chip twice. [​IMG]

    If you feel imgburn is the problem, maybe check oldversion.com for an older version that you may have previously used.

    I have the newest version, and when burning PSX games and verifying them, the verify always says the games are corrupt, but they work fine in the ps2. Not sure if the "corrupt" thing is normal or not?

    I hope maybe the old version works better.

    I downloaded the latest ImgBurn, burned the disc again, verified it on the PC where everything went fine, then I used a tool to test the disc on the Wii which failed around 1.2GB.
    Then I burned the disc on an unused RW (I always use RWs [​IMG]) at 2.4x verfied it again on the Wii and it went through it without any error.
    ... odd

    I've faced some of these same errors with imgburn. For awhile I thought it was the medium i was using (I've yet to have trouble with Sony discs have had a bit of trouble with HP dvd-r). So I'm curious now is there a better program to use to burn wii games besides imgburn. I have quite a few other programs such as alcohol 120 and sonic digital media. (I believe it's based off of roxio). I also have a few nero install discs lying about from some old dvd burners. So I guess my question is should I use one of those instead of imgburn. Also I've yet to get a memorex dvd to read in the wii when burnt with imgburn. So I'm starting to think medium matters more than burning software.

    Guys,

    To be honest I would have thought it was media more so.

    I use ImgBurn to discs. I can safely say I've burnt 1,000+ discs in the last couple of
    months, all Verbatim, all at 16x, all verified and all 100% working.

    I use the latest Imgburn and two Pioneer 215 burners.

    I would say its either your media or your drive, or possible the speed your burning
    at. CD Media these days need a good drive running the latest firmware.

    Now this may seem weird but loading my disc read error disc through geckos works fine. I was having troubles with TNA impact I thought it was the medium and hadn't re burnt it yet anyhow since I plan to update someday to the newest wii firmware I figured I'd install gecko-os and well somehow it gets past the disc read error screen and well i beleive it loads faster than through the disc channel. So if you have games that the wii will recognize and occasionally get an error in the middle of game play try gecko-os. It seems to work for me. And by the way I figured there would be a possibility I'd get dre's when i burnt this game but wasn't expecting it on SWTFU since i burnt it at 4x. Namely I burnt at 16x but somehow gecko-os fixed my dre's. So now I'm totally stumped at why when i load through the disc channel i occasionally get dre's with games. Is protection on some games I don't know about??

    Guys

    Why are you burning at such slow speeds.

    It has been shown that burning modern DVD media at the highest rated speed
    with a decent burner works best. Therefore if you have DVD-R 8x you should
    burn then at 8x, 16x burn at 16x.

    I use Verbatim DVD+R / DVD-R 16x, I burn them at 16x and never have had
    a problem on a Wii, never.

    Burning at 4x is an "Old Wife's Tale" at this stage of the game.

    Modern DVD media are made for speed and you get a better burn if you burn
    it at it maximum speed (or close to it), not 4x

    tried gecko and i still have the same problem, the wii recognizes the disc but as soon as i launch the game i get a DRE.
    I'll try burning at 16x just to rule out the possibility.
