    Neogamma giving the error:Disc not a wii/gc game

    Hi
    New to the scene here
    Just softmodded my wii
    I installed the neogamma dvd reader thingie r9
    i burnt the legend of zelda iso to a TDK 4.7 gb disc
    at a speed of 8x on a Leopard Mac with the disk utilty
    The disc just shows the iso file if you open it on the mac
    When i put it in the wii and start neogamma frm the homebrew channel
    it says "disc not a wii/gc game"
    Pls help urgently
    Thanks

    No kidding. 8X? TDK? And what wiihacks guide told you to do that? Did you even follow the wiihacks guide for softmodding? Just curious.

    Yeah i did
    but the only discs i could get my hands on were TDK
    I live in South Africa and I asked my mom to head out and buy some discs
    I followed mauifrogs letterbomb guide i think
    I tried a slower speed didnt help
    but if i could get my hands on a usb then it would work
    but if u have a fix for discs pls help me

    TDK = poor media, CMC MAG media ID in 99.9% of cases. You should use quality media (Verbatim, Taiyo Yuden) and burn at 2x or 4x. Do other backups work? Newer Wiis can't play backups via optical drive (DVD). You could perform a SysCheck as described here as a reply to this thread, if you'd like...

    my wii is from 2008
    so if i use better discs it should work?
    Even though neogamma isnt recognising the discs as wii discs?
    I have a verbatim disc here but it has Win7 on it and its only 2.38 gb even though on box says 4.7

    tells me cant erase
    anyway to bypass this

    im on mac
    is that fine

    alrity
    i have a 4gb flashdrive formatted to wbfs
    anyway to reduce the size of wii iso

    Dude, seriously? You think 4 STRAIGHT POSTS is the way to do this? Really? Answer: it is NOT.

    Apologies, bad info (this is an edit). It's a single layered image, but won't reduce to less than 4gb. Same bottom line result as prior to my edit (won't fit).
