    Hi. I'm not entierly sure where to put this, so I'm sorry if this is the wrong place. Anyway:

    I have some problems with tales of symphonia 2 US edition on my PAL machine. The unmodified ISO boots fine under gecko os, but it does have some problems:
    1. Small, white spots during cutscenes at random places (not a big problem, I can live with it, but..)
    2. Extremely noisy dvd-drive that works almost all the time (my biggest worry)
    3. Rare "disk read errors" while loading a sequence in-game
    4. Sound seem to fade a little in and out during battles

    My burner is of ok-quality and use verbatim DVDs, and I haven't had this problem with other games. I also brickblocked and region-freed the iso on another dvd, but all of the problems prevail... My modchip is a d2cKey if that has anything to do with it. I haven't updated myself with the latest "wii-hacking" news in a while, so I am sorry if I'm asking about something "obvious"

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Under Wiigator loader (gamma) it runs fine the amount of disk reading is extreme , so far the media (burned 4x) is holding up.

    Right. I'm more worried about the actual lens than the noise itself. Could burn speed affect it? or is the game simply designed like this?

    Side question: If I use the original disk when it arrives to the Europe, will the game still be able to utilize the save from the NTSC version of the game?

    Btw: I've only gotten disk read error once.

    If you're wondering, the white spots are caused by the sparkles that come along with the quill-like cursor icon that seem to like to load in right after the close of a cutscene. I'm running this game perfectly fine on my chipped wii and I've also noticed it's quite loud - probably because of all the data it is constantly streaming off the disc so I think the noise is normal (much like SSBB).

    Have you tried using a the freeloader? Try setting the screen to 60Hz (or EDTV if you have component cables, which is what i'm using) and use the freeloader. Worked for me.
