    Smash Bros. Brawl - Disc Read Error tendencies...

    Hi there!

    Recently, my backup of Super Smash Bros. Brawl started to have problems with my Wii.

    Whenever I insert the disc, my Wii tries to load the disc and fails, returning with the message: "Unable to read the disc. Check the Wii Operations manual for help troubleshooting."

    Only after several (many!) times in a row that I restart my Wii and try to load the disc - it finally works.

    The thing is, it only happens with this speciefic disc, while other backups work fine (including the dual-layer backup of Metroid Prime Trilogy. (without the update partition, though))

    I've thought about moving to USB loaders, but I've tried both USB-Loader GX and Configurable USB-Loader, and haven't been able to play my encrypted SSBB.iso (even after renaming it to RSBP01.iso) off an external HDD in NTFS format. (Don't wanna format it to WBFS)

    Maybe I should have posted this on another section in the forum, but if I can get this disc to work, then I will have no reason to bother use USB Loaders. Please help me! Is it the lens? Should I try to reburn the game? I fear it will just be a waste of an expensive (In my country at least) empty disc and wield the same results. (Besides, my current backup is burnt on a Singapore-made Verbatim DVD+R DL 8.5 GB, and the only empty DVD+R DL I have left are Taiwan-made, and the Singapore-made are said to be better)

    My Wii is 4.1E, my backup is European PAL. Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: My problem with the USB-Loaders is that they don't see the game in my HDD (and think there aren't any), and USB-Loader GX says in the bottom "Games: 0". However, it "admits" that my HDD does have XXX.XX out of YYY.YY GB of free space (unlike another case I saw in another forum, in which the guy's Wii said 0 out of ??? GB space)

    What's this got to do with harmods?
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Because I am simply trying to run a burnt backup on a hardmodded Wii.
    This is my main problem, and if there is no solution, I could use USB Loader, except I got other problems there, as I explained above.
    I could have posted all this in the USB-Loaders section of the forum, but then the burnt disc wouldn't have anything to do with USB Loaders.
    How I chose where to post this thread was easy - my main problem was running the SSBB backup on my hardmodded Wii, so I posted in the Hardmods section.

    BTW, I forgot to mention another detail in the thread: the same backup disc I mentioned - it once used to run perfectly. Only in the last 6 months (approx.) it began giving those errors.

    Just checking as it wasn't mentioned in your post.

    It's clear you gave this some thought before you posted here and that's great. I wish more would take your example.

    As for the backup not playing so well...

    As you may be aware the Wii's drive is a little bit pants and does struggle sometimes with dual layers, especially backups. I have heard that some have had some success with modifying the laser focus slightly to better play SSBB, although I've never bothered to find out how. I imagine it's something akin to changing the Azimuth on old cassette players. Burning again may help of course, at least for a time anyway. Dual layer discs are expensive though so I do understand your reluctance. As an alternative you could always purchase the game disc, I know this idea is wacky and alternative but I thought I'd mention it anyway. Surely a DVD +R DL is cheaper than a retail purchase?

    LOL Just for that I clicked your thanks button!

    In the end I succeeded in running SSBB through USB Loader from a Disk-on-key. My new problem is this - when I run Metroid Prime Trilogy that way, once I have chosen a save slot and a game (MP 1, 2 or 3) it returns to the Homebrew Channel. I know that thorugh USB Loader GX (which I have) you can choose which MP (1, 2 or 3) to run right away, without going to the Trilogy menu first. I would like to be able to run it normally, (meaning - going to the Trilogy menu first and loading one of the games from there) so I can choose another save slot and change options. If that is not possible, can anyone at least tell me how to change which save slot the game loads when I choose MP1/2/3 from the USB Loader? (When I choose MP1 from the USB Loader GX, it loads save slot 1, which the first save slot, and the last one used)
