    Did you keep the disc out of the sun etc..
    From any kind of wear and tare.

    Cause I have Back Up disc from 2009 and they can all play from my wii with no problem.

    IMO, USB loading is much more reliable. I can't say if it's totally true but being that Wii isn't meant to read burned games I have a feeling that adds extra wear and tear on the drive.

    Yes, it is true Usb loading is more reliable in the sense of the fact you will not have any lag in it.(No Choppy Clips)
    When you play a back up disc in the actual drive it does lag in the Movie Scenes .(It Lags really Bad )
    That's why I never use my wii drive...it just doesn't make sense.

    Here's a couple simple facts. Store bought retail discs are pressed, and have an extremely high reflective value. The higher the value, the easier the time the laser has in reading data. DVD-R (or even +R) have a much lower reflective value which means the laser has to work harder.

    A weak laser or a dirty laser could be a factor. Also the quality of media being used. There's two brands that are considered "no substitute for." Verbatim with azo dye, or Taiyo Yudens. Anything else is junk, most often CMC MAG which can be read Day 1, and will give read errors Day 2.
