    Game Disk unreadable

    The odd game i backup it comes up as an unreadable disk when i put it in the wii. First i just assumbed a bad disk ok burn another same result. Then i thought well mabe the backup i had was flawed all get a differnt backup same result. I came accross Dolphin and figured well i could test the file first before copying and making my dvd's into coasters. OK check file plays on dolphin np. Next burn game check disk well play with dolphin. Now insert in wii and it says disk unreadable and wont play it. yet it well play on my pc using dolphin.

    In this case for example im talking about - Modern Warfare 3 NTSC. Is there somthing special i have to do for this game.

    I generaly use ImgBurn and just let it auto pick the burn speed default settings.

    Any information i can get on this is much appreciated thanks in advance.

    So I assume your Wii does play burned media? You should burn it at 1x-3x speed. And there is a MW3 guide on here, but nothing in it will help if the disk can't be read.

    No, you would have to plug it into the computer to transfer them. Why not just rip them directly to the 1TB drive and play them from there.

    the usb hard drive sits beside the wii in a big wall unit to move it to my pc to dump the games directly is difficult as taking the hd out of the wall unit is time comsuming because of its design.

    I see. Why, then, don't you just play your backup games from said HDD?

    You can rip your original disc to your hard drive with your Wii.
