    You can't say that its my Wii's problem, because I THINK that's not the case since uLoader can run DVD-R's from an external drive while Neogamma says "maybe dvd-r's are not possible :-(" what gives...is there a way to by-pass this freak error??

    the internal dvd drive is probably not capable of playing backup discs. Is it a fairly new wii?

    Not much, I bought it this summer (in June), white Wii, it came with 4.2U firmware, LiteOn External Drive and Wii Sports game which apparently didn't work.

    That's not a freak error. I could write your drive is too new, but i don't know that for sure. If i told that and you somehow had a drive that plays DVD-R, you messed something up(bad burn or DVD+R without bitsetting) and then eventually you find out your Wii is able to play DVD-Rs, then you would have every right to be angry at me => I say "maybe" not possible.

    PS: New = (christmas '09 or later || not white Wii)
