    From reading around I am understanding that the slower you burn the more easier it is for your Wii to read and is less harsh on the lazor, people have burned at 16x and they still play on the Wii.

    It does not matter how fast you download an ISO the only thing that matters is the burning speed. I have also noticed I get better results using ImgBurn than Nero when burning images.

    Question black and white burns

    I've burned games on phillips and verbatim dvd-r at 2x with imageburn. The first three burns were perfect. My last 3 burns all load but show up black and white (These are three different games) when i load them on wii. What is the reason for the bad burns. Is it something I am doing wrong with my burn process?

    What I have tried so far:

    Imation DVD-R 16x discs - I burned them at 4x - the first one trashed (sometimes happens with my burner) But the second one works fine.

    Tesco DVD+R disc - same iso, Wii couldn't read it.

    My burner: External USB TSSTcorp/GERICOM DVD+/- RW
    Burn software: ImgBurn
    Burn Speed: 4x

    The iso I burned was an NTSC one, and I have a PAL Wii. It worked fine (i just wanted to test it)

    ****Since posting, I've had trouble with my Wii reading burned backups, so now I use a 16gb memory card via the USB slot and use USB Loader to launch the games - they work really well!

    The problem was with the region on the disc. I had to change the region in neogamma to ntsc as the dvd was Pal. Thanks for your help.

    Has anyone tried to use the booktyped DVD-ROM back-ups on the new D3 or D3-2 DVD drive chips to see if they might work?
