Burned Wii discs playing for a bit and then crashing
I recently bought a Wii second hand and soft modded it on the day i got it.
I used the soft mod guide from this site and it all worked without any problems.
Im burning my games on to unbranded DVD-R at the slowest speed possible, and playing them via NeoGammer i think.
All burned games i've played (about 5 of them) seem to work perfectly for around 5 - 10 minutes and then crash. Most games seem to have some kind of audio fault first before freezing, whilst Mario Kart just went to a black screen that said 'Disc Read Error'.
Is this a sign that my Wii is on it's way out, or is it as a result of using unbranded DVD-R's?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Could be either of those things, or it could be that discs inherently stink. Think about USB loading to avoid this conversation going forward.
TO be honest USB loading would be ideal, but i dont want to spend the money on a new HDD. The Wii itself only cost me £30 and for games that i can pickup for £5 to £10 each, i dont need to be spending £40+ on a new drive.
However, im currently searching to see if its possible to run games from an SD card, as i have a 32GB card... running games from this would be ideal - does anyone know if this is possible?
Alternatively i would be willing to buy an 8GB flash drive and run games from that if possible.
hmmm looks like i cant use an SD card seeing as its formatted as FAT32 and my game files are > 4GB.

Yes you can, you just have to use the Wii Game Manager to transfer the games to the card.
The games will be split into two files and put into a folder called WBFS.
Over all I would invest in a HDD.
It might seem costly at first,But you won't have to worry about your Disc getting ruined.(It Pays For Itself in the long run)
