The media is fine. I tested three of them on another Wii to be sure. I burn at 16x but 2x makes no difference because they already work with DVD-R. I also made 5 Wii Fit discs and all produce the black screen, so I figure WF/WFP both require IOS53 that I don't have. I have no online connection. I bought this from a liquidation palette. It's funny that this is the easiest bricked Wii that I'll be able to save because the 10 others that I have all have total black screens at boot. That means they can't use SaveMii, right? WiiFrii won't do anything because this is 4.2u, right?
