    Having trouble getting DVD backups to run on NeoGamma. I have a launch Wii so it should be possible just via softmodding. I have burnt the discs at the lowest speed I can but still get Error 1208 (Disc ID) in the latest NeoGamma Beta build. I have installed cIOSX Rev19 and it will not run Super Mario Galaxy. Am I missing anything e.g. a specific cIOS for DVD backup loading.

    THIS guy has the same error, and THIS could be the solution.

    Nah no need to open the wii. Make sure you are using the latest NeoGamma R9 beta, and that it is using a cIOS and not IOS36. Then try to run the game, if only the error message shows up, but no warning about the drive, the drive is fine.

    Another dvd burner could be the solution, but before that the DVD+R question should be cleared. Also lowest speed --> bad burn, use at least 4x.

    I'm using cIOSX rev19 (i.e. NOT 36!) I also definitely have a DVD backup capable Wii (its a UK launch Wii). I'm using DVD-RW (cheap ones but they have worked on the PS2 no reason they shouldn't work on my Wii). I have also tried a different burner and gotten the same error with my last ISO (Disney Sing it!) My DVD drive's max speed is 4x burn and my other burner can't burn any slower than 4x.

    The Wii has a lot of trouble reading DVD RWs, use DVD-Rs. Also if your burner's max speed is 4x, use another one, and then burn at 4x or faster.

    I would say the cheap DVD-RW are the problem. Do you have a DVD-R to test if it works?

    No blank DVD-Rs lying around unfortunately. Will try the ISO in my brother's DVD drive again (the last one said it was a Scrubbed ISO so god knows what that meant). I can try DVD-Rs but the thing is that if they fail then there's no getting that DVD back -_-
    Also, are there any specific programs people can recommend? I've been using ImgBurn but for all I know Wii discs are in a strange format it doesn't quite burn correctly.

    Scrubbed means that only game partition was kept. Garbage data and possibly update partition were left out.

    Honestly, use DVD-R's, you'll have no problems with the Wii reading em.
    And, yes, use Imgburn, everyone uses Imgburn for Wii ISO's....
