If it's an original, pressed disc (read: not burned, pressed) then you may be right --- but likely in reverse order. I know when the DVD9 was released, some users couldn't play it due to DVD drive tolerances in their Wii. If a legitimate DVD5 was issued, logically it would've been after the DVD9 to solve issues within the userbase. Again, I don't recall an official issue but that could be I'm in the USA and don't know Nintendo's worldwide distribution on titles.
... Do you have any friends you can borrow a copy from? Maybe someone who didn't buy it at the same time as you, to at least confirm or deny the DVD5/DVD9 issue.
It looks like the DVD5 release of SSBB must have slipped by this post. It only lists a dual layer disc as a release.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl uses a dual-layer disc due to the size of the game data. Nintendo of America has stated that some Wii consoles may have difficulty reading the high-density software due to a contaminated laser lens. Nintendo is offering a free repair for owners who experience this issue.

Also, for what it's worth, when I google SMBB "DVD5" or "single layer" all I get are torrents and failtube vids.
ok i investigate the dvd 9 or better know as dual layer disc was release by nintendo meanwhile the the dvd 5 is a single layer disc with 4.7 gb capacity nintendo never release this version, the dvd 5 version dont have the story videos because they were rip off to safe space and a think they rip other stuff, so the dvd 5 version can be burn in a single layer dvd and have 4.35 gb, so my theory of my copy being dvd5 is wrong like hell because
my disc have 7.47 gb, and another thing when a put the disc in and going to install it in usbloader it say it got 7.47 gb but when it finish installing, it say it got 6.?(?= a dont remember right now but a think it is 6.95)this mean something or the loader rip the update?
please correct me if any of the information is wrong.
The DVD5 release is not an official Nintendo release.
When a usb loader installs a game to the hdd, it removes the padding, making the ISO smaller in size. The update does get ripped to the hdd but the loader ignores the update.
The update partition is removed when you rip a game to HDD.
ok i am closest to resolving the problem, i uninstall SSBB and use configurable usb loader to install it back, all start right but when it get to 56.36% it get a lot of errors that say: warning: read (############) error (-2) and stop, now a think my disc is broken even if it work fine in disc channel, so if anybody know this error please let me know. for now i goin to download the iso and man it got like 80 part a hate that.
the (##############) are a lot of different number in each string of errors, so a have to be crazy to put.
