I'm on 3.2U, installed homebrew, installed the cIOS for Backup Launcher, then installed Backup Launcher Gamma. I've burnt a few games and initially I would get the error Disc Read Error from within Backup Launcher. I chucked my old DVDs and switched to Verbatim DVD-Rs, burning at 8x speed, and now I get past the Backup Launcher screen (it detects a game id, etc.) and now I'm stuck on "The Game Disc could not be read. Refer to the Wii Operations Manual for details."

Any ideas? I've searched the forums, but haven't had any luck. Before I go and burn through my stack of DVD-Rs, I was hoping someone else might have some ideas.

The games I've tried burning have been both PAL and NTSC. Right now I just tried Mario Kart NTSC and I'm still stuck.

Most likely it is one of the following.
1. Cios install didn't work properly, reinstall the cios
2. Dvd burn speed resulting in low quality burns, increase burn speed to max or auto, and test disc quality with dvdinfopro using a pi po scan. quality needs to be at least 85% to rule out bad burns as a possibility.
3. This one is very unlikely, but your burner may be changing the booktype to +R by default

I've tried Mario Kart and Wii Music. I'm using IMG Burn at 8x (max speed). IMG Burn confirms they are DVD-Rs. I've reinstalled the cIOS twice now. Checked IMG Burn's booktype settings, it's DVD-R.

With Mario Kart, I do get to the warning screen that tells you to check your surroundings. With Wii Music it only freezes at a black screen.

DVD Info says my burner doesn't support pipo. I did run an error test which came out clean.

I reinstalled cIOS rev 7.

Thanks alot for the quick replies!

How old is your burner? I personally wouldn't trust a burner that can't verify the quality of its burns. Is 8x the max of your media or your burner? If its the burner, then i'm 75% sure your problem is the burner.

Same time, just after the warning text.. never getting into playing the game.
But as written, I can get all games to play but only when im patching them.?

Yours sounds like you have the old cIOS installed - deleting ios249 with any title deleter and re-installing cios36 rev 7 should resolve your issue - though patched games may not work anymre for you.

ok i reinstalled it twice,no deal. Now im having some questions about patching. Are you guys atalkin about using the Cios installer to patch things up(the sonic thing) or ??? I dont recall using a patching thing,or maybe i forgot that i used it before. Ok next thing is what is the 002fix??? I dont recall using that either.

As soon as someone answers those common questions,i'll try it again,thanks!

If you're using a cIOS installer that has a sonic image on it, you're using the older one. Find wiigator's newer one, with a little gator on it.

and just because it's on topic, I have rev7, and 002 fix loader. My games still run better when I patch to IOS249 (waninkoko's). Don't know why. Don't really care. it works, why worry about it?

Oh, and it sounds like your burner is a little older. try experimenting with lower burn speeds, as a buddy of mine has the same issue with his burner. He burns between 2 and 4x, and gets no DRE's that way.

first off drop the burn speed slightly. Try using 3x or 4x max. If that fails then you will likely wnat to try a different brand of dvd. I've had no problems with Maxell DVD+R's with IMGBurn forced book type of DVD-R at 3x speed. I've copied many games that work great on this media.

I know it says not to use DVD+R's However every time I use a DVD-R I have issues.......
