    Cool Memorex

    Have a quick question. Burnt a backup at 4x speed in imgburn with memorex 16x disc. Game loaded fine through USB loader gx played about 5 minutes then got error the disc could not be read. Should I burn at the 2.4x option in imgburn because even though I picked 4x imgburn said was actually burning at 5x. Any help would be appreciated.

    Could be the fact that you used Memorex, try the slower speed and if it still fails get yourself some decent Media such as Verbaitm DVD-R.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    I use Phillips DVD+RW to burn my first copy of a game so I dont waist my Verbatim DVD-R's. Takes a little longer but saves me $ in the long run.

    movies on a usb or hard drive.

    I download movies off the comp and want to put them on a usb and play them on my Wii. I know you can do it on the ps3. Does anyone know if and or how it can be done.

    Imagburn burning on aws ( Max speed noticed 8x )

    Verbatim DVD-R

    -You need to format the drive to fat32 file system( i believe u can use a program called swissknife as windows wont do it on a LARGE drive)

    -copy movies onto hard drive

    -You need a program like "Geexbox (no network support as of yet)" or "Mplayer -CE (supports wifi)" on your SD card and then run it through homebrew channel.

    -tell the chosen media player to look on the hard drive, then select a movie in the list and play it.


    details can be found for both players on WiiBrew

    Happy streaming.

    Actual brand name of DVD doesn't really matter as most dvds are made by 1 of 3 companies then licensed out to other companies for branding ie verbatim maxell.

    sometimes you will get for example maxells that burn great no issues then the next month you'll have nothing but problems with them because the got a better deal with one of the other manufacturers
