    Smile Image Disc Read Setting Speed

    I have some questions but I don't see answers from reading the FAQ
    and stickies.


    I have an image copy of Wii Sports on a DVD-R (16x) disc.
    I am using ImgBurn to create (I guess re-create) the image
    from the DVD-R (16x) disc. What should be the reading speed setting (mininum and max speed) for creating this image under ImgBurn? Should it be min 1x or min 1x? Any idea? Or it doesn't matter?

    How about the name of the *.iso image file that I create? Can it be just image.iso or does it have to be some specific name for the Wii
    to recognize the disc?

    Thank you.

    The most successful ISO burns are with ImgBurn set somewhere between1X and 4X. Some folks start with the faster 4X and if that works, excellent. If not, the other successful setting is ImgBurn at 2.4. The ISO can be named as you wish, the game title is encoded, not retrieved from what you name the game ISO file. However, the file must retain its *.iso extension.

    If you have problems Verbatim DVD-R provides the most consistently reported success.

    Oh, btw-don;t test your system with Wii Sports Resort (it's a tricky game to run from backups) if that's what you were using. If its the old Wii Sports-that's fine.

    ive always read mine at max, but i would assume that a slower speed means less chance of errors.

    As for the name, it makes no difference, as the name isnt burnt to the disc, it is just the name of the file while stored on your PC.

    What about the reading speed for a disc with burned image of Wii Sports. Should that be between 1X and 4X as well? Thanks for the info on the burn speed though.

    Btw, I am just trying to restore the image file of the old Wii Sports. I have not tried the new Wii Sports Resort yet.

    Should the reading speed be constant say 1x to 1x to minimize error or 1x to Max? Is there a big differential in time between the two? Thanks.

    The read speed is less critical than the burn speed. I also recall any big problems with needing to set the read speed to any critical number-try MAX - think most folks do that.

    the slower the better for the dvd reader to run it. so 1x 2x to 4x are the best speed for burning an iso image
