    I am still using WiiFree in my Wii, and to be honest hardly use it.. Every few months a new game comes along and I never have any problems.

    But I just got hold of "You Don't Know Jack" and can't for the life of my get it to work.. First I tried a 1.11G "WBFS" version which I converted to ISO and burned.. This disk reported "Unable to read disk".

    I then got hold of a 4.37 ISO and expected it to work.. But I got the same problem.. I then started to think that it was media, so tried again on a quality disk and I still have the same problem.. Normally if a game doesn't work, you can see it when it "mounts" but it won't play.. But in this case it reports "can't read disk" and the drive doesn't spin up properly.

    Am I missing something? Has anything changed? Could it be that it doesn't work with WiiFree?

    I am tearing my hair out so would be grateful for any advice/thoughts

    I save my discs and use USB loading, and the game works fine for me on it.

    My friend also downloaded a version (it may or not been the same ones as mine) and he burned it to a disk and got the "Could Not Read Disk" error too..

    Not sure what to do now.. I guess I should think about doing the USB hack, but in truth, just when I think about it, I loose interest as I so rarely use the Wii any more and all the games I want are on DVD!

    Honestly, even if you were able to get it working on a disc it would likely be unplayable. Pre-rendered video tends to chug along at 2x disc read speeds, and You Don't Know Jack is almost entirely pre-rendered. Other games like Warioware suffer for the same reason.

    Grab yourself an external HDD and never look back.

    Ahh. I didn't realise that... I am just reading the 'How to Mod' thread and it looks pretty straight forwards.. I think I might give it a go.. Luckily my chip is on the outside, so removing it is easy, so atleast I don't have to open it up to take it out.
