    Hello!


    When I put a backup into my Wii, it just says; "Unable to read disc". Although, the backups can be read sometimes, but it's quite rare.

    Original games works just fine.


    I have Wiikey with the latest update "1.9s".

    My DVD's are Traxdata DVD+R 16x


    And oh, it's a higher possibility that the backups can be read, if the Wii has been turn of for some hours.

    I don't think it's because of the DVD's, 'cause one of the not-working-dvds where working on my friends Wii..

    I thought burn speed for highly succesful working dvds were max 2xso maybe it should even be less than that

    This problem happens with a friend of mine aswell... The games load just fine on his wii-wiikey, but eventually get DREs, usually during cutscenes... This exact same games play just fine on mine...

    I love this debate and always try and get my oar in.

    The Wii reads at 6x (well, the first model ones do anyway) - therefore it's best if you burn at 6x.

    This has certainly been proven on my wii with the troublesome title Bully (some say Bully is fine, but I reckon its a good stress test for burn/media quality) you can HEAR the difference clearly with anything other than 6x. click brr click brr etc.

    *not taking credit, I took this from Afterdawn*

    burn speed matching read speed is a rumor, a popular one at that ;P

    * waits for the link that burn speed affects read speed * whistle *

    It IS either your media and other people's wii's are less sensitive, or it's your soldering perhaps. But I REALLY recon the first.. get some verbatim or tdk's and burn at 4x

    all my burns are on verbatims @ 4x... they play perfect on my wii-wiikey... they will load and start to play fine on my firends, but he eventually gets DREs... his wii must just have a weak drive... funny thing is, all his originals play perfect...

    where your media is made in is important too

    taiwan/singapore better (correct me on this), india is the worst

    Hm, I burn at 2,4x, so I really don't think the burn speed is the problem.. I use Traxdata, which is known to work perfectly on the Wii. =/

    burning too slow can also be a bad thing, or your burner could be the culprit. but just try a different brand.

    possibly you need to use thicker AWG wire for your 3v3 and gnd connections.

    I tried to burn Mario Kart now with 4x, and I could actually play it for some seconds now, without the "Game Disc could not be read" sign. But then it came and ruined my day.. Any suggestion?
