The combination of NeoGamma R4 and DVD+R is working for me. I am now using my soft-modded Wii for more than just emulating classic games.
@Dogeggs -- Thanks for your help as always.
@zzhorba -- I would be ok to buy a modchip, but I was trying to avoid that scenario if I could. A hard drive isn't really a crazy expenditure for me as I have over 12.5 terabytes of storage. I have a LOT of blu-ray and hd-dvd movies archived on disc. Another disc could serve multiple purposes for me. The same cannot be said for a modchip.
P.S. zz, a sixteen speed burn is pretty fast... you leave room for a lot to go wrong at those speeds... may want to slow it down.
Thanks JaceMan. At least, it shows that it is indead an issue with the media. I tried DVD-R with x4. Now I have a black screen with "The game Disc could not be read".
It is probably still a media issue. I am buying some Verbatim as advised on another thread.
Did you use a specific settings in the NeoGamma launcher or just the by default setting?
With NeoGamma R4 loaded I simply chose "Load game from DVD" and it started up. I didn't mess with any configurations, hooks, etc. It just took off and played, and so did the disc after it, and the one after it. I'm all smiles now.
I don't know if it will work for you, but I just had the same problem.
Tried to run a copy of Super Mario Galaxy and got the 559 error. But stubbornly, I tried again, 100% sure I'd have the same outcome. But when I looked up, I was at the SMG title screen. I literally fangirl screamed (and I'm a guy)
So my suggestion, assuming all is right with the copy and the burn itself, is to just try loading it again.
This is my first post whooo huu :)
I have burned 2 copies with imgburn (all settings default) one with 1 speed and one with max speed. Tried both in R3 and R4 (both with all settings default).
The max speed works in both.
The one speed gives error code 559 (R3) and 721 (R4)
So I defendly say it's all about the ben...ehh..burningprocess.
Btw. used Philips DVD-R
An update on my side...
I bought the Verbatim DVD-R "Up to 8x" as recommended in one of the sticky. It is now working!!! Burned at x4.
Ive heard alot about Verbatim are better for games but havent try them.. Has anyone has burned their backups on Memorex DVD-R?????

Just reading a few places on here and google about the 721 error in Neogamma - interesting.
My Wii will play the backup's no problem yet my daughters Wii won't play the exact same discs on hers :S I'm going to try some Verbatim's and see if this is the problem.
I have a question here ...... Will different drives react differently to the same backups ?
I've made alot of research trying to find the answer to my problem and i read alot that it doesnt make a difference pretty much any type of DVD-R disc or DVD+R disc should work on the wii... Make sure u install cIOS38 and installed tru the network not tru the WAD file.. thats what happened with mine it didnt read the Memorex or any type of disc so then with alot of research and patience found out that the cIOS that I had installed didnt installed or incorrectly so try to installed the cIOS38 and see what happen...
