Thread: I need help playing backup gamecube games on the wii.

  1. #1

    I need help playing backup gamecube games on the wii.

    Here's some info. Here's the guide I followed.


    I did everything it said, but the games won't play. My wii system menu version is: 4.3U My homebrew channel version is: 1.0.8 IOS58 V24.32

    I tried using both neogamma and GC backup launcher. When I load the disc using neogamma I get a message saying: DVD Err (1208), Disc ID

    When I tried using GC backup launcher I get a message saying: Failed to read dvd 263 Error 0x3023a00 No Disc.

    Okay now I admit I didn't use the recommended DVD-R like the guide said to. I used both DVD+RW and DVD-RW since I already had some of those here in the house. Neither worked. But I don't know if it's because I didn't install something on my wii that needs to be there or if I burned the games on the disc wrong or if it's just the wrong kind of blank dvds. I don't mind buying some DVD-R but I want to make sure that's what the problem is before I waste $20 bucks.

    Has anybody gotten this to work? What did you do different from me? What method did you use? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Have a look in my +click here spoiler. (wii drive chip database) If your wii is quite new it will not be possible to use backup discs however you can mod to use USB loaders with a portable hard drive

    It's not new at all. I got it for Christmas in 2006. Here:

    I guess it's the disc then. Okay I'll buy some of these:

    Hey guys, I forgot to mention that FSTFIX didn't work for me. When I tried to open it it blinked on the screen for a second and then closed. So I couldn't compress/shrink the games.

    EDIT - And when I drag a compressed iso into it I get a message saying:

    FSTFIX.EXE has stopped working.
    a problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
    Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

    Also I had to turn off my antivirus because mcafee kept removing the fstfix.exe whenever I tried to unzip it.

    EDIT again - I followed another guide here:

    And installed the two cios. I put the disc in again but it didn't work. I did get a different on screen message however. This time it said:

    DVD Err (03023a00), Disc ID DVD+R/bad burn/DL problem?

    So I'm guessing that it must be the disc. I'm going to order those DVD-R and hopefully they'll work. But I still can't get fstfix working. So I won't be able to shrink them.

    Hi guys. I got the new verbatim DVD-R in the mail today. I tried them already and they work perfectly Thank y'all for trying to help me out with this. Now if only FSTFIX would work so I could shrink them.
