    Maybe try inserting disc 2 and press the "Z", then insert disc 1 and start it and switch discs when prompted to.
    I tried the above and still no good. Actually the problem occurs whenever I try to swap discs. Because I can start Metal Gear's Disc 2 and then when I get to the point to load my game (on Disc 1) and swap it gives me the error message: "The Game Disc could not be read. Please refer to your Nintendo GameCube instruction booklet for details."

    Now I'm thinking to download both NTSC discs and retry from there. The only issue is that the games come in sections. It reads something like this for disc 1: MGST1.7z.001, MGST1.7z.002, MGST1.7z.003 and for disc 2 MGST2.7z.001, MGST2.7z.002, MGST2.7z.003.
    My next question is how do I combine these partitions to make an .iso?

    Thanks for your patience.

    my history: i softmodded my wii (4.2E) and installed cios38rev17, im available to play wii games through hdd no prob but having problem playing GC Backups. i have followed this guide but still gets dvd error. i burned the games (on 4x imgburn) tdk dvd-r and verbatim dvd+r (not changed the booktype) both of these games gets error on the wii and cant get started i have tried most of the launcher all give me the dvd error and wont start. but when i try to play the disk on my pc (Dolphin emulator) the game starts and works (booted from my dvd drive). i guess my wii dosent like the media?.So i lookd up if i had the D3-2 DVD drive but Wii Drive Chip Database says: There is a 100% chance the chipset is GC2-DMS. The console is from the release (2006) could you get the d3-2 drive back then?. now i was thinking about buying verbatim dvd-r and burn with another burner but i am not sure if that is the problem that why i need your help guys considering what the problem might be. Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

    As far as I can tell its NeoGamma version R8RC3 foudn here: NeoGammaR8RC3s.zip
    And when the screen flashed I saw GC launcher 1.1 (?that doesn't make sense tho, right?)

    ALSO I can now get the GC backup launcher .2 to load the disc most of the time, but the game always runs at about 25% speed (MarioKart Double Dash) The NeoGamma will load it about 90% of the time and runs flawless except for a few missing songs during gameplay (namely the ceremony song at the end)

    GAMECUBE SAVES! I have tried GameCube saver with NO success. I then wrestled with Gamecube memory management found here:
    http://www.nes-hacks.com/wp-content/...09/01/gcmm.zip

    I played around with this for 1-2 hours trying everything to get this to work, I was downloading the save files from the internet and then trying to put them on my SD card to load onto the gamecube memory, every time I did it, when I went to load the save file from the game it would say that the memory has been corrupted. I then changed the .gci to a .txt and tried to change the "serial key" to match the one I just made on Mario Kart DD (then changing it back to .gci). This sadly came up with the same error "game save corrupted" After playing around with .txt a little more and a hex editor as well I gave up. I then turned on my Wii much later loaded MK DD thru NeoGamma and it wouldn't load!!!! I tried 5 times, then tried .2 GC launcher, it worked... but at 25% speed, HOWEVER when it loaded, it loaded the save file with all the characters unlocked!
    I then kept trying to load through NeoGamma and got it to work, and the save file with all the characters unlocked was working there too.

    WOW I'm sure I was a little verbose there with lots of spelling and grammatical errors, but I hope that helps someone!!!!!!!!!

    I use Winrar for those types of files... I think I just double click on one of em, then it extracts it as one.

    arghh shiver me wiilee lol...hey thepimp...I would suggest you use a file dumper like superdumper and dump an original GameCube game, to either your Hard drive but you can also try a 2Gig SD card Sandisk,Verbatim then drag the 1.5gig file onto your XP PC or laptop and rename your dumped GameCube file here is someone elses guidelines that I used from the superdumper guide somewhere inside this Wii forum;

    Just get the file superdump 1.3.dol place it in a folder named

    Superdump, then place the Superdump folder in to the Apps folder.

    your Apps folder should be at the root of your SD card.

    For the noobies like my self who read these forums with people dumping

    games and burning them no problem but not being 100% clear how they

    did it, here is how i did it, step by step.

    Its best to use a 2-8gb sd card for this and mine is formatted to fat32.
    So once superdumper is in your apps folder, turn on your wii, insert

    your sd card and go in to homebrew channel. locate superdumper and

    load it. Once loaded, leave it how it is, making sure its set to sd

    card. when you load superdumper your dvd split size should be just

    over 1.5gb. click on A till you get insert disc. put game in you want to

    dump and press A. Now leave it to do its thing, should take about

    15mins.

    Now to copy it to pc. (in the administrator on my pc so if you can do

    the same on yours? it helps)

    Take out sd card, load it in your pc. whe you open it you will see 2

    BIN files like for example RSWP_0 and RWSP_1 both are bin files,

    remove the underscore so it RWSP0 and RWSP1. Now copy these to the

    root of your C or D drive on your pc.
    On your pc click start, run then type cmd and as most of you all know

    a command prompt window comes up. If you are using the C drive type cd

    c:\ then press enter and you will get this c:\
    If you are using D drive type cd d:\ then enter and you get this D:\
    Now you are ready to put in your command to convert your bins to iso.

    Now type in front on c:\copy /b RWSP0.bin + RWSP1.bin (then the name

    of the game ending with .iso like this

    c:\copy /b RWSP0.bin + RWSP1.bin mario.iso or if on D drive
    d:\copy /b RWSP0.bin + RWSP1.bin mario.iso

    you will get a flashing underscore type thing like you do when you are

    about to type somthing. leave it be and when finished it will say

    file1 copied.


    Once you have a backup use a Verbatim blank DVR-R and burn at x4 with ImgBurn or Nero then try to load it via Disc Channel because if it can recognise the burnt disc at the screen it should load it once you click "start" in Disc Channel. If you get the green screen for a few miliseconds that is ok it meant to then you should see a menu asking you about 60hz ect...then load the game.....I don't think you would get the D3-2 dvd-rom in 2006 but since you have no warranty left you could at your own risk open your wiilee lol and actually see what kind of dvd-rom board you have on your dvd-rom drive as its actually the circuit board coloured green that controlls the laser and caddy of your dvd-rom. Plus if you open your wiilee lol you can lightly clean and see if any crap has build up on the dvd-rom housing. Good luck report back on what you do and what happens...arghh..

    I think the D3-2 DVD drive was introduced in late 2009 or early 2010, but don't quote me on that.

However, I still cant do anything. Even tested it on the N64 Emulator and it works on that. Dont know why its not working. Any suggestions?

    Did you read the guide, I didn't recommend Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden just because I like them. Glad to hear you got things working.

    What exactly are you having a problem with? Have you tried re-downloading the package, maybe something got corrupted. Also, make sure your SD card is not full, and make sure you're using a 2GB SD card, some homebrew is picky that way. (I'm adding that to the first page)

    Trying to install the miospatcher. Got a 1GB Sd Card. It is not full. Got about 940MB left on it. Will try putting it on again and see if it works. Also, when trying to run the cMIOS Installer (both), it has Errors but says Sucessful.
