poor video quality
I just hard modded my d2c drive with wii key 2 and wii clip. i have tried 3 backups so far (COD5, Zelda, and dragon sword) and all 3 play perfectly but the video quality SUCKS! I am using cheap "office depot" DVD-r 16x media @2.4x, 4x,and 8x. tried a few copies of each. i am going to try better discs but thought there might be a problem with my mod. any suggestions? also tried metroid trilogy on memorex dl and got a bad disc error. i tried changing read speed from 6x to 3x and back again to no avail. these discs are perfectly good for dvd's and the DL discs are great for my 360 backups. I get my .ISO files from nzb sources and never had any trouble with any other type of media.
While your discs are fine for DVDs and data use, the Wiis can be picky and they do vary from one Wii to another; makes it hard to have a set problem-solving process. Given the problem, try the most conservative recommendations which are to burn your backup game discs using ImgBurn, use Verbatim DVD-R, burn rates between 1X-4X. The Wii drive is 3X so most try at 2 or 2.4 and if that fails try 1X next before moving up to 3 and 4X speeds. To date, I believe the only Wii game on a dual layer format is SSBB so don't waste the Memorex DL.
