    i need some help two weeks ago i went to fry's (just like bestbuy) and bought 25-disk sony dvd-rw. i burned an image (2010 fifa world cup...) (with imgburn) and then error 972 (neo gamma r6) pops up. I put the disk back in my computer (windows 7 64-bit), says the disk is completely empty (4.8 of 4.8 free it says). Then downloaded nero tried again once again, same error and disk empty. Then tried with The Bigs 2 & a multidisk gamecube game/disk with both imgburn and nero (i followed the instructions on many wii-hacking guides) still no luck. i read other people have had luck with some sony dvd-rw's but that was two years ago. What am i doing wrong. please help!

    system menu 4.2U
    ios249 rev17 (tried to get to rev19 (Ret=-1 comes up)(same with rev18))
    dark corps installed

    (I'M NOT GOING TO BUY NEW DVD'S --> I'M STICKING WITH MY DVD-RW'S I BOUGHT!!!!)

    Rewritable DVDs aren't compatible with softmods. There's no need to stick with them. Use DVD-R. Maybe that people you're talking about had modchips, that's the difference.

    Then stick to buying your games and not backing them up ever. Stubbornness wont make them work

    Keep your RW's for movies you DL (avi, mkv, etc).
    Don't be stubborn, dont ask why? Your getting good advice here. Use it.
    You'll just end up with a whole lotta coasters by being stubborn.
    Get the DVD-R's = right media.

    Not at all.
    DVD-RW's cannot be changed by booktype.
    Thats why they are sold as RW's.
    Chalk it up as a learning experience.

    Now go out and buy 100 DVD-R's for $30. See if you can return the -RW's.

    the only reason i won't buy new dvd's because my parent won't buy new disk (especially after i convinced him to buy these)

    best not to use RW discs your laser has to work twice as hard to read them hence shortening it's life.
