    Trying to boot NTSC-J backup on NTSC-U Wii

    I need some serious help... I am not able to boot a Japanese ISO Backup on my USA Wii, which is on version 3.2, and has backup loader and gecko os. I burned the game at 4X on a sony DVD-R, which may be the problem right there... I also tried on a maxwell DVD-R and that failed also. I just simply downloaded the game and burned it in disc utility on OSX, I didn't try to patch it or anything. Should I patch it with something at all? Also, OSX said the iso could not be mounted, is that normal for Wii games? Sorry about all the questions ... hope someone can help, if you need anymore information, just ask
    Edit: oh yeah, my wii is not chipped, just hacked.

    Thanks! I'll try this! Regionfrii recognized the game and I changed it over, I am going to go buy some of those verbatim discs at best buy now and those will hopefully be better media. Also, just to confirm, are Wii ISOs not supposed to mount?

    what game is it?

    I can run Japanese backups off of the Gamma Loader when it's combined with StarFall.

    Not sure what that means, but with Verbatim DVD-R discs, follow this method ... Wiihacks - Nintendo Wii Hacks Community - View Single Post - Guide: Creating & Recording .ISO files

    It hasn't failed for me once.

    Dance Dance Revolution Furu Furu Party, it should work because HP2 does and they run on the same engine... and I should try that starfall thing too

    You know what ... let me give that a shot right now.

    I have a WiiKey 2, but I'll see if it even boots. Be right back.

    The starfall thing did not work for me, I'll try the patched regionfrii iso when I get back from best buy, also, it may just not like my DVD type, so I'll get better ones. When I try to boot it up in gamma, it just is a black screen, when I try in gecko, it says no DVD, so I'll try the other way once I get home.

    The good news is that I don't think it requires any sort of extra .IOS file.


    I really think it's the dvd's now too.

    If you have an Office Max around, Verbatim DVD-R's are $15 after coupon.
