    What kind of discs are you using? Verbtabim DVD-r is recommended. And believe me it matters. Also, burn with imgburn at 2x or 4x times.

    I haven't used tdk so can't say for sure. But I know the media you burn to does make all the difference. I tried burning a memorex DL disc for a xbox360 backup and my pc wouldn't even complete the process. But the Vertabim DL disc worked perfect.

    This holds true for Wii games too. If you followed the Stomp's guide to play Gamecube backups, then I'm sure it's not the mIOS your using.

    Only other thing it could be is you lens is dirty or taking a crap.

    You can tell if you clean it and then your discs work again. You can use this to clean it.
