    Dvd backup...issues

    So i have been expirmenting with making backups off of my retail disks. My current setup is 4.3U with a GC2-D2B board. I started with extracting an ISO from my retail copy of Resident Evil 5 (Wii Edition) I then proceded to burn with image burn (@2x using a PIONEER DVD-RW DVRTD10RS 1.00 and recieved the following resaults.

    RE5.ISO + HP dvd+rw = Fail...I got the "unable to read media" error in the disc channel. Although i figured this would happen as it was a dvd+r...it was all i had at the time.

    RE5.ISO + Verbatim dvd-r = Fail "unable to read media" in disc channel

    Now i do have one 16x dvd-r but am weary of trying to burn the ISO again as i am unsure if it is corrupt or if the discs where just crap.

    Now my questions are simple:
    1) does 4.3 interfere with the ability to play backups on a virgin Wii?
    2) Is there a program (like ABGX) that can check my ISO for errors?
    3) i see people posting up error codes...where do i find these? both errors i received were not accompanied by a code..

    lol, you need to softmod to read backup discs, and if your Wii is 2 years old or newer, it will never read backups, you have to usb load

    Agreed, the faster read times are where it is at. In the end i will go that route, but i was thinking in the mean time why not make some backups...i have abandon the RE5.ISO project (for now) until my copy of Lego star wars come in so i can load up home brew
