    Us gamecube backup launcher fail

    ok so i got an error



    Here is an explanation of the error codes:

    The read error 0x31100 means that one sector is not readable on the disc. You need to burn a new copy, clean the disc or clean the laser.

    The read error 0x40800 means that the DVD-R is not detected, because there is no IOS249 with backup support installed (Note: This error code should only be possible in homebrew games/programs).

    The read error 0x52400 means disc is not a backup (e.g. original Wii game) and IOS249 is not installed or doesn't have backup support.

    The read error 0x53000 means disc is not detected, because IOS249 is not installed or doesn't have backup support.

    The read error 0x53100 means disc is not a backup. You put in an original Wii game instead of a GC backup. You will also get the "error occured" screen.

    The read error 0x1023a00 means that there is no disc inserted.

    The read error 0x3023a00 means disc is completly wrong (e.g. turn disc around, disc not burned, disc too small minimum ~1 GByte).

    the bolded error is the one i keep getting no matter what write speed i am using so i know its not a burn problem. I doubt its a bad iso because i cant even get a messed up screen.

    So I bought a lot of memorex DVD+Rs and gamecube backup launcher wont read any of them and it must be a DVD problem

    Answer quick if you can, because i might as well just return my DVD burner

    That's a questionable at best statement . A bad ISO means it won't load, as in likely you'll get nothing.

    As is this statement as well. It's most definitely a media problem. Memorex discs are junk 4th tier maker media. Verbatim DVD-R or Taiyo Yuden, or Ritek G05 media is what's called for.

    Of course, your drive could be D3-2 and incapable of playing backups.

    Re-read my original response, I had edited it after your initial response. For sake of argument: what system menu/region? How old is the wii? The brands of media I gave are the ones tried-and-true. Memorex is junk, accept it or not. The media I gave is direct from the burning and dumping section of the site in a sticky. Did you follow Stomp's guide? You give no details, no information, or anything of substantive value and expect accurate, expert knowledge in return --- it's a two-way street, ya know?

    So, I got the error code "The read error 0x31100 means that one sector is not readable on the disc. You need to burn a new copy, clean the disc or clean the laser." I tried loading a copy of Cubivores burned at 3.1x speed. My burner doesn't burn at anything lower than that. The weird thing I don't understand is that, sometimes, the game works. And sometimes I get that error. But more often than not I get the error. Even more peculiar, is that I just modded a friends Wii and to be sure, tried loading this same game in his, and voila, it works.

    I want to say maybe it's the burn speed that's my problem, but seeing as how it works on my friends Wii, and that it has worked once or twice on my own makes me question what exactly the problem is.

    We are both running 4.2U and used the 4.3 smash stack guide. When the gamecube game is inserted, it shows up on the disc channel, and when started, it loads the Gamecube Backup launcher 0.2

    I plan to burn legend of zelda wind waker shortly and see how it fairs.

    Got a question? I might have the answer! PM me if you need some help!
