    The flash drive was. I transferred it to my external hard drive which isn't formatted to WBFS though and I burnt it from my external hard drive, not the flash drive.

    Get hold of iso that hasn't been on WBFS file system, ie NTFS, or Fat32 and try burning that. If that fails I would looka at getting a new DVD writer.

    I figured out that it's not even burning the iso to the disk. I'm using Imgburn and it goes through the process of burning it to the DVD-R but when I check it after it's done it still shows that it's a black disk. I'm going to try to burn the iso to a DVD with another computer so hopefully that works. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I'm pretty sure these are the DVDs I got (I just got the 30 Pack):

    Edited: I just tried to burn the iso to a disk on another computer and it still shows that the disk is empty even after I try and burn the iso onto it.

    Edited: I just tried to use BlindWrite to burn the iso to the Sony disk but when I put the disk in it said "This media can't be used". I'm not sure if that's the reason it hasn't been burning the iso to the disks. I did use it on another brand of DVD-R disks though and it didn't work on those either.

    Do be aware that your PC will not read Wii backups. They will appear as 0 bytes, 0 free or empty.

    If you look on the outer edge of the disac you should see a slight difference between a blank disc and a burnt one if you need clarification that they are burning.

    I would think that if I was burning an iso to a disk the computer would read it since it's in a format that the computer can read.

    I see what you mean by the edges look different on a burnt disk.

    Windows just doesn't see the Wii format as readable data, to Windows it's just an empty partition of 1s and 0s. If Nintendo just made their game discs in a nice Windows readable ISO format then it would be far too easy to copy them.

    Use ImageBurn to verify your burnt disc,it will tell you what you need to know....

    Quick question, before I attempt to backup one of my games, does my Wii have to be softmodded to a particular state? My Wii is currently softmodded to the point of HBC and the basic downgrade/Upgrade CIOS as the guide states. Is there a particular Modd step or program that I will need to be able to play my backups? I have the LU65 4.1U....Thanks, pnkwhite
