    burning from back-up DVD

    ok...i've been making a ton of coasters and figure i should probably get to the bottom of this by picking the brains of those more experienced.
    i recently had the wiikey installed and am trying to burn games from a backup disk.
    i'm copying the backup of the game from the backup DVD to my HD. it's in .iso format and is usually roughly 2GB in size. (is this where my problem is?)
    i'm then using imgburn to burn it at the lowest speed possible. when i set it for 1X, it usually still burns at 2.4X.
    I'm using maxell DVD+R.
    I have now been able to get the title screen for the game to show on my wii but when i go to fire the game up, i get an "eject the disk error and turn the power off." i've played burned games on my machine so i know that they work, but i've just never been able to burn one myself.
    If anybody can please shed some light on this, that would be greatly appreciated. it's been a frustrating couple of days.
    Thanks in advance!

    has the wiikey been updated? think they at 1.9ish now

    i do know you need a lg drive to read originals as for backup dvd i am not sure, i have not tried this method my self. daft question but did you try to just copy the dvd with nero or like? 2gb sounds small, which game is it? or what size is the torrent file of the same title from the same region
    i'm then using imgburn to burn it at the lowest speed possible. when i set it for 1X, it usually still burns at 2.4X.
    wierd, if you set it at 1x it should burn at 1x unless you got a setting wrong. i don't know on that one, as i said i never tried your method b4 but imgburn has all ways worked 4 me with torrent iso files
    I'm using maxell DVD+R
    I have now been able to get the title screen for the game to show on my wii but when i go to fire the game up, i get an "eject the disk error and turn the power off." i've played burned games on my machine so i know that they work, but i've just never been able to burn one myself.
    i take it that the game you trying to copy works on yo wii? and the "burned games" you bought some where? you have never burned a game that works via other methods (torrent/burn) or have you just tried this method(rip/burn). if you getting a game loading screen you all most there but iv'e had that trouble b4 with a dying burner doing sloppy burns, but i knew it had worked b4 on many a burn(too many LOL) to fail at the loading screen
    try other methods and other media first, quality verbs +/- seem to work well, you do get what you pay 4. find a brand and +/- that work and stick to it.
    good luck hope i helped, even a little?

    all wii image sizes are over 4 gb's....usually 4.37gb


    try verbatim dvd-R

    better yet...TY's (Taiyo Yuden)..DVD-R

    do not burn at lower than dvd supported speeds. 4x is fine.

    imgburn>tools>settings> write tab> set write mode to >incremental

    presto...no more burn problems.....

    Just thought i'd throw in my findings:

    I've tried Verbatim DVD-Rs and found that i had write problems - couldn't read disk etc. I find Sony DVD+R to be the best.
