Read error advice
i appear to be struggling with this, have read hundreds of posts..
i have hard and softmod.. D2pro chip and updated it with 1.7 utility disk, i was at 3.1 wii firmware but after loading F1 2009 its updated to 3.4, my main problem is i have loads of disc read errors, virtually 70% of all my recent burns fail on my wii, most ok on a friends softmodded wii, used to use any media burned with nero at 4x, i have now tried Ritek G05 and imgburn at 1X, the F1 game prompted the upgrade which i did but it still wont read the disc, skate it and skate city heroes show on disc channel but give me error when i try and load them, recently starwars force unleashed started giving error in mid game too, not to sure on original games as the main ones played are backups.
I have used Nintendo lens cleaner, stripped the Wii and hoovered it out, tried it upright and flat but its stil the same, going to strip it and manually clean the lens tonight.
Even cleaned the lens on my burner to see if it helped but it didnt..
Any help really appreciated...
Im hoping to purchase HDD over xmas and play games from this but would still like the wii to work normally....
If the laser is on its way out it will slowly stop reading backups. Cleaning it may give you a couple months more out of it, but essentially it will need replacing. Try burning a game at 8x with IMGburn. See if that helps solve your problem.
will give it a go, dont mind renewing the laser, just dont want to fix summat that aint broke
burnt tony hawk and skate city at max on imgburn and both work, had to reinsert disc a few times on tony hawk but its workin now....
Seems odd that burning on its max setting works yet most recommend burning slowler, i do know its not 100% right but better than before
Good stuff. Better than replacing the laser.
very true, just reburnt F1 thats workin too
