    hey all, im having some trouble getting newer games to work on my wii

    first, my wii has a wiikey, updated to 1.9x and works fine
    i was playing mario kart wii online earlier without a problem, so its def working with my older backups

    but i recently downloaded kaze no klonoa :door to phantomile (wii version) and it wont work AT ALL

    it is recognized fine in the menu, but when it boots, it just comes up with a DRE in japanese

    so i re-burned it again (at 4x like normal) and no difference

    this also happened with rayman raving rabbids tv party, just a DRE, even when burned like all my other games at 4x

    my wii is at 3.3E and has been working fine upto this point, the newest game i have gotten running is sonic unleashed, and that works fine (burned at 4x also)

    does anyone know what the problem might be?

    thanks in advance [​IMG]

    If your older games still work fine, it might just be your burner.

    The laser used to burn weakens after excessive use, which will make the quality of your discs worse.
    Also, did you switch brands lately (disc-wise)? That could also be a problem.

    There is a program with which you can test the quality of your burned DVD's, but I forgot what it's called >.
