    Newbie, i know how annoying newbies are on forums! Drive key problems??!!?

    I installed my drive key on my wii today ( i didnt know u could soft mod ill be honest) i can get into the drive key menu on the Wii so i know its installed ok, i can run official games but the backup games wont work , i get the "there has been an error eject the disk" etc etc.

    Ive been on the drive key webpage and read about burning disks using IMGBURN, and it talks about making the disk DVD-ROM instaead of DVD+ but i havnt got the option to change the disk, ive got an optiark sony drive?!?! is it the disk burning were im going wrong? any idvise greatly welcome

    thank you!!!

    I use the same method as you and have never experianced any problems reading games! Providing your ISO is a good image, you shouldnt encounter any problems.

    I use Verbatim DVD-R, I use imgburn to burn the ISO's, and i always burn at 2x.

    Hope this helps

    Yea the most important thing about burning games for the Wii is definatley use good media [Verbatim or Ritek work the best] and -Rs are preferred. Imgburn at slowest speed as stated before.

    How new is your wii? If its fairly new you can have the new D3-2 boards.
    Come to the Irc room to get help or just have fun

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.

    You could go here: Wii Drive Chip Database to see if that is the case.

    ur case, definitely, is media issue. use 16x dvd-r and burn it at low speed 2x~4X with ImgBurn would bring u 99.9999% success.
    burn speed, the slower the better. perhaps, u pay quality with time. at 2x, it takes 25~27 minutes to burn one !
