    I have a bunch of games that I haven't played in a while and backed up on DVD+Rs. They used to work completely fine as far as I remember.

    Recently, however, the Wii refuses to read them. I did install a shitton of cIOSs and IOSs to play more recent games that I now play through USB,
    It's not that big of a problem. I can rip the discs and reburn them or play them through USB, it'll just be kind of an inconvenience. I'm curious if anyone has run into this problem though and if maybe there's an easy fix?

    Thanks.

    Could be crappy discs that went bad between when you successfully ran them and now. I've had some CD-R discs do that.
