    I am currently on the 10.6 branch, and experience issues when attempting to burn copies of my backups with the utility. I have attempted to follow tutorials provided, and the burn process backs out prior to writing the first track.

    Thanks for clarifying - well thats very strange?! As you said it could possibly be an update issue. Have you successfully burned another type of iso or dmg image since the update in question? Or maybe try some different media - I recently had an entire spindle of 50 Verbatim DVD-Rs which all gave me write errors.

    Also, did you try installing the 'Burn' application as described in the first post?

    Just as an afterthought, as you must be running an intel mac (to have 10.6) you could try booting up into windows and using imgburn or nero - I guess that would at least tell you if it was an OSX issue with your drive.

    Sorry I can't be of more assistance.

    I did investigate the 'Burn' application prior to attempting and noticed that it used the same framework to actually perform the operations that the 'Disk Utility' application used; with that in mind, I have been very hesitant to add to the stack of coasters building up. At the time of writing the previous posts, I did not have enough media to throw at the problem, which put me into a cautionary route towards addressing the issue.

    On a good note, I did purchase additional media and am testing the 'Burn' application as of now. The good news is, even though this uses the underlining framework, it does not appear to have the same blockage that the 'Disk Utility' application presented.

    If no further word is mentioned from me, assume it worked! =)

    Those applications mentionmed cannot manually set the layer break of DVD9.
    Any one know an application (Mac, of course) that can allow the user to set the layer break?

    Thank you.

    I've been using "WiiJunkies" for burning all my Wii games on the Mac.


    WiiJunkies is an unscrambling / RegionFrii / WiiBrickBlocker combination written for Mac OS X. It runs on Mac OS 10.4 and 10.5 on both PPC and Intel based systems.

    Its goal is to unscramble, free, patch and burn isos using a single application.

    The OS X guide for burning .ISO files from a Wii.

    Using many programs will work. If you have OS X, you have "Disk Utilities". Open the program, drag/drop the .iso of the game in the lower part of the left side menu. This is normally under the CD/DVD drives the Mac shows. Select the ISO in the menu, and go up to the burn button. I have had great success with Memorex and Sony DVD-R media at a 4X burn speed.

    Once the DVD is done burning DO NOT DO A VERIFY DVD! It will not read the DVD and get locked up in your drive because the DVD will not mount on the desktop. If this does happen, open another DVD burning utility like TOAST and command it to open the drive.

    TOAST 10.5 will burn a backed up Wii DVD to a blank DVD-R. Just use the COPY feature. Burn 4x if you can.

    Very frustrated now

    Hi guys,

    I have no idea how to burn the ISO's I have. They will not mount in any application and Mac says there is no mountable filesystem as do the other applications. Is it me or are all the ISO's corrupt in some way.

    Any advice gratefully received.

    Regards

    Nick

    You don't mount them, you use a burning program, then select an ISO, then select burn,
    no mounting involved

    Thanks William. I've tried that but just end up with a disk with an iso on it, which the wii cannot read. Any further help appreciated.

    Regards

    Nick.

    I use a program called "SimplyBurns" you can get it over at Project SimplyBurns

    All you do is click on "Burn Image", then click on "Choose" to find your ISO, then click "Burn",
    set the "Speed" for "4x", and then click "Burn" again
