Burning summary - 1st attempts go wrong
first of all I'm new to this forum and this is my first post/question - nice to meet!
So I actually read this whole thread before posting my question, I'm not sure I have all the info.
I have a WII NTSC 3.1U firmware, installed homebrew channel and trying to use Backup Launcher 0.3beta to load ISO (d'loaded from the web). My first try is Wii Music, downloaded ISO and fixed size using Backup Creator. Burned on Maxell 16x dvd-r media using my Optiarc AD-7580A laptop burner and ImgBurn software. When I try to load the game with backup launcher I get a garbled message saying something about dvd error, failed, etc (text words are written one on top of the other) and that's it. To clarify, I didn't install a hack chip.
- Has anyone had experience with this? I know people get games to work, but has anyone had these failures and are they burn related?
- Could it be the media? I understand Verbatim is the king but I read somewhere in this forum that they've *used to* use Tayo Youden dye and now they don't, but Maxell still uses them - which means I should've gotten a good disk, no? Here is that thread: http://www.wiihacks.com/dumping-burn...best-disc.html
- I use 1x write speed - should I be doing something else?
- Anything else that may be the cause here?

just read all 14 pages!
great information above in most of the threads..and this answered all my questions regarding game backups.
one this that is repeated over and over is to use good quality disc and low speed and thats what fixed my problem. ( i was getting blank screen from some of my backups)

Can you use any DVD Burner to burn Wii backups? (My Wii is softmodded with Backup Loader and all that..)
I've got some Wii games which are getting scratched and i would like to burn them with my Memorex DVD Burner on regular dvd-r's, will it work?
Thanks guys I appreciate it

you can only burn genuine wii games with a lg gdr 8164b -8163 -8162- 8161 only those 4 will work with the correct software if you have back up games already then any burner will do.
