Thread: Can't play GC backups. Wii backups work fine.

    Can't play GC backups. Wii backups work fine.

    My firmware is 4.1U with cIOS38Rev14 installed. I also installed cIOSCorp do be able to play backups directly from my disc channel. My first backup was a Wii Game (Super Mario Galaxy), which worked fine except for some stuttering and audio issues with the opening movie scene (but I see that's pretty common for that game). Then I made backups of a couple Gamecube games (Metroid Prime and Pikmin 2). Neither of them worked, but I saw two different behaviors.

    Metroid Prime was recognized as a Gamecube game in the Disc Channel, but when I try to start it, the Wii Reboots. Pikmin 2 doesn't even get recognized as a gamecube game. My initial thought is that cIOSCorp is working fine because it was able to recognize Metroid as a GC disc. There might be something wrong with the Pikmin ISO since that's not even getting recognized.

    I also tried running them through WiiGator's backup loader. The Wii just rebooted on both of them.

    I'm burning the ISOs to TDK DVD-R discs using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've read that re-installing cMIOS rev3 might fix this issue. But since the game is being recognized as a GC disc (at least one of them), is that ruled out as a potential problem?

    Actually, installing cMIOS again appears to have worked for the Metroid Prime disk. The other one still won't recognize. I'm thinking that's a burn problem.

    Can someone recommend burn settings? Is 4x good or should I go slower? Any other options I should use to increase my chance for success when burning?

    And what about discs? Are TDK DVD-R's good for GC Backups?

    you also might wanna try installing DVDx if you havn't already, i found that some GC games wouldn't even show up without installing DVDx along with cMIOS. And i usually burn my GC backups at 4x speed on ritek discs. Also be aware that some GC games just flat out arn't compatible :P
