    I don't understand, are you trying to play a retail disc or a backup?

    he wants to play a backup


    @topic: do you use the right layer break and is your drive able to read burned discs?

    you said you use a verbatim dvd+r, do you have the book type set to dvd rom

    I also think either the drive is not able to read backups or the booktype was not set to DVD-R. I think over 90% of DL media is + media...

    Also, install cIOS56rev20, using IOS70 as base doesn't make sense when playing games with it. With cIOS56rev20, take any disc out of the drive and let NeoGamma boot "the disc". If it only shows a read error and nothing else, it's a problem with the disc, so either the booktype is wrong or a bad burn. A wrong layer break should only cause problems when reading from the 2nd layer.

    You select boot disc. It can't work, but it's a simple way to trigger a read error. And on read error, NeoGamma checks if the drive is able to read DVD-Rs or not.

    I guess all your SL discs are DVD-Rs? When using DVD+Rs, you need to set the booktype to DVD-R(dvd-rom), or your Wii won't be able to read them.

    Is your Wii reading any dual layer discs? If not start by cleaning your laser.
    I have never changed the booktype on any DVD+R DL discs I have MPT SSBB and MPOM and all work just fine

    thankyou for your replys my wii can read dual layer discs , apart from 1 disc all my others are dvd-r and not dvd+r , how do you set the booktype to DVD-R(dvd-rom)in imageburn? thankyou

    this is weird what i have done is to put the new wii on which is 4.3e chipped it asked for a update to play the game , and what i have done is to burn 2 seperate discs 1 is a - disc and the other is a + disc , now when i put the - disc in it will load and then it will say it cannot read the disc so i put in the + disc without restarting the wii and then it carried on loading the game up and untill it said to put no 1 to start the game and then all i got was a black screen , i have now updated what it asked for and burned another dvd+r at x 4 with imageburn and it seems to work fine now well i have got through the intro and at the moment i am tring to climb a wall but why it does not seem to work on 4.2e chipped only on 4.3 chipped i dont know thanks

    I went on a long spiel on how to change the book type , and then closed IE by accident (fuck ) anyway your problem maybe be with the layer break .... try this

    LayerBreak=1913760
    xxx.iso


    where xxx is the name of the game your burning

    Hi Guys,
    New to this Blog thing….so bare with me,
    I usually use raw dump to make my back up images (ISO)
    But Metroid Other M being a dual layer DVD it gives me an error message
    What should I use to create the back up ISO image?
    And than you guys seem to be talking about using Image burn to burn the back up copy right! Creating a note pad ISO file with the layer break and the name of the file on It.?
