    Thumbs up Puzzled member could do with a little help please..

    Ive got a softmodded wii and Ive always played my backups off an external HDD using a USBLoader. I am now giving my Wii away to a friend but I am going to be using the external HDD on something else. So I converted the games from .WBFS to .ISO and burnt them to Verbatim DVD-R at 4x. I burnt about 15-20 including new titles like Fifa 15 and they all worked great. I then left it for a couple of days because I was busy. Last night I burnt another 7-8 copies and none of them are working, Neogamma is saying "drive too new for DVD-R".

    Now I know this is a problem with later Wii`s but surely something isnt right here. 15-20 in a row work and 7-8 in a row dont. Could it be bad conversions from .WBFS or bad burns. I find it hard to beleive its the drive because of how many are working and even later releases like Fifa 15.

    Any enlightenment would be really appreciated.

    Are the Verbatim discs the ones featuring "Azo dye," or lifebrand subseries? If the latter, they're CMC Mag media and junk (not produced by Mitsubishi). A bad conversation, a bad source image, a bad softmod, etc can all contribute to this. Perhaps you should post a SysCheck - both program and directions can be found HERE. Post as a reply to this thread.

    Cheers for the help mate. How would I tell which Verbatim`s I have.

    Ive thrown away the packaging, I just have the discs on a spindle.

    Well, it's not your Wii. Which means it's either your media or the images you're burning.

    While this is with a regular (non-Wii) burned disc, load up ImgBurn and check out the information window. I have emboldened and made red what you need to compare your blank media against:

    Disc Information:
    Status: Complete
    State of Last Session: Complete
    Erasable: No
    Sessions: 1
    Sectors: 2,262,432
    Size: 4,633,460,736 bytes
    Time: 502:47:57 (MM:SS:FF)
    MID: MCC-004-00
    Supported Write Speeds: 3x, 4x, 6x, 8x

    That's definitely Azo dye (trivia note: MCC is aka Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, the ones who use the good stuff). So that would lead me to questioning the image/source. Can't help you there, other than to advise you to re-rip using your retail discs.

    Kind of off topic, but there is that drive date again, along with a "drive too new" message... Maybe im not crazy...lol. Gonna have to figure out why neogamma would throw that message when it didnt do that before...

    Edit: @OP, do any of the original 20 that worked before work ok now? Did you make any changes at all to your Wii between burns, like System Menu version change, cIOS upgrade, neogamma update, etc..?

    Thanks for the help.

    The first 20 still work fine.

    I have remembered something I done different on the first 20. Nothing else was changed. When i converted the .WBFS files to .ISO the destination for the .ISO was my C: drive but for the ones that dont work the destination was the same as the source (which was the external HDD). The External drive is FAT32 so obviously wouldnt be able to hold any file larger than 4gb. The only thing is, my computer didnt give me any errors that the conversion would exceed 4gb.

    Thats the only thing I can think it can possibly be. Annoying because the external HDD has now been wiped. So will have to rip again.
    Surely the wii should give me a disc read error
    and not "drive too new" error. That really threw me off.

    Cheers

    What app did you use to convert your wbfs files to iso?
