How to play burned games
I have my Wii hacked and the games play just fine from my External hard drive, but I can't save any of the games. The save option is completely gone. So I figured maybe it was something with the games loading from the HD and it didn't know how to save to the Will HD...so I burned a couple of the games and I can't get them to play. They load just fine. They show what the game is and when I click Start, this pops up:
An error has occurred. Press the Eject Button, remove teh Game Disc, and turn the power off. Please read the Wii Operations manual for more information.
Did I miss something in the hack that won't allow me to play burned games? Do I need a specific type of DVD? +R vs -R? Someone please help. My daughter has been playing the same levels of these games for a couple weeks now and it's really getting frustrating to have to start from the beginning every time.
You should be able to save games from hdd if they are loading just like any other game from disc. Verbatim DVD-R discs are the best, but keep in mind that newer wiis have a new chipset that prevents dvd loading and you're limited to dvd. I'd focus on sorting out your usb save settings. Which loader are you using?
I'm using Configurabe USB Loader. I figured out how to play my burned games, but the 2 games I've tried still don't have a save option. I assumed since these are kids games that Auto Save would be enabled. The games are Tangled and Super Hero Squad. If anyone has these games, how do I save?
Never played them, but I did find this in a review of super hero squad:
I do have a major issue with the Save system, however, as the game is hampered by a scheme that only allows you to save your game at the end of its lengthy levels, some of which can take over an hour to blast through. In this day and age, that’s just lazy development and as this game is aimed at kids, I foresee a number of more intense battles with parents as they try to complete a level while being called to the dinner table and finding themselves unable to save their progress.
