    I've tried imgburn and Nero with no success. Tried SoftMii and Gamma Loader. SoftMii says that the disc is not compatible and Gamma gives me Disc Read Error 324 or something like that. Any tips?

    It helps if we know what game, and what media (Dvd Brand) you used, lastly what speed you burned on.

    I used a Verbatrim DVD+R burnt at 2x. I tried to burn Rygar and Also WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2009. Sorry. I'm a total NOOB at this.

    The problem is most likely the DVD+R go here

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=129239

    One of the sections, said Media, and it tells you how to change the booktype of your DVD + R to a DVD-R
    ( The Wii really prefers DVD-R's)
    plus the guide is helpful with burning in general. Check it out it should help you

    As said before, use DVD-R as they seem to work better on the Wii and to avoid any burning errors, it is suggested to use 2.4x burn speed on ImgBurn. It may take a half an hour but it'll be worth it when the disc can actually be read.

    The Wii doesn't really prefer DVD-R over DVD-R, it's just, the booktype has to be either DVD-R or DVD-ROM. And 2.4 is not a DVD-R writing speed! If you have a new burner and good media, you are supposed to burn at least at 8x.

    Yeah, well my crappy Dell laptop with the burner won't let me change the booktype to DVD-ROM, so I just bought some DVD-Rs and it worked fine. Thansk for the help guys!!!

    Actually, that not true... Just change the booktype to -R (minus R) (if your burner is capable of doing this the one in my laptop isn't).

    I always burn +R with booktype set to -R, because I have 'bout 200 left. When I finish them I'll probably switch to -R...
