    DVD-R not working?

    I want to backup some of the games I have, so I downloded the iso of a game (Kirby's Epic Yarn actually) and burned it with Burn My Files to a Verbatim DVD-R disk(previously tried with DVD+R, didn't work). I also have the NeoGamma backup launcher installed, but it always gives me an error about the Wii (which is 4.3, btw) not supporting DVD+R! I burned the game to the slowest speed available(isn't that 4?) and it still doesn't work.

    Please help!

    Btw, Imgburn doesn't work for me...weird.

    If the wii is new and came with 4.3 then your wii won't be capable of running backups.

    USB is the only way.

    Ps Does the original of epic yarn play ok?

    Thanks for the quick reply! First of all, my Wii is really new - I just bought it a couple of weeks ago. All of my games (including Kirby's Epic Yarn) play fine.
    So, there is no other way to play back-up disks? Like some other application? Only USB? Then I guess I need to buy one with more space...

    That is correct! The newer Wiis can not play dvds. Your only option would be to run your backups on a usb hdd.

    Yes, that's what I'm probably going to do...

    Configurable usb loader, USB Loader GX, and Wiiflow. You can also use ULoader if you want.
