    Disk could not be read!

    Ok first this is the best wii modding community ive found on the net! Thanks to dogeggs perfect guide i've softmodded my wii! i'm still however quite noob to softmod cuz cant understand half the jargon thrown around here but im quickly learning.

    ok so now my prob i did exactly as told in the tut and everything went 100% smooth and easy exactly as guide said. now ive burned several games (smg2, mario tennis, ect.) and for all of them i get the disc could not be read mess for all of them. i've search the site and the only answer to how to solve this is slow down burn speed. im using imgburn and originaly went with 2x speed the after having this prob went to 1x (but it still burned at 2x which idk why when i set it 2 1x it would give me 2x cuz it was "mismatched" unless im missing something) but i dont think speed is the prob here maybe its drive(tsstcorp ts-l632d)? im using memorex disks and i read someone on here with is same prob was using them as well could this be the issue? idk cuz everything i did up to this point ive had no probs with at all. also when i eject the disk it says please insert "the name of the game im trying" disc so i no there's something on these stack of costers that i have from burning multi copies trying to get it to work.
    i need to play smg2 so bad cuz i loved the first one beat it 100% and want to do same for this one! my gaming life is on xbox n my wii has just been sitting forever until my friend told my bout how easy it is to mod wii so i found you guys if i can get this thing up and running id be so happy!

    How are you trying to load the games? You need to use Neogamma to load backup from a DVD. Also google "wii serial number database" and look up your serial number to see if you have a D3-2 chipset. If you do you can't run backups from DVD at all all though if your was able to follow Dogeggs guide then I'm doubting that this is the problem.

    LOL, I guess I knew that from your first post. I guessing it is either a media problem or bad ISO dumps. Are you using DVD-R's?

    Almost any situation relating to a bad softmod or an incompatiblity usually result in a numerical error code or loading the game into a black or green screen. The disk could not be read error usually relates to a bad burn or a bad iso of the game being burned. which basically means the console is ready to go, but the disk isn't making any sense to it.
    Most of the time restarting the pc to refresh system memory and shutting down all unnecessary processes running in the background will do the trick. Any viruses aor malware running in the background will mess you up as well. Use as best quality dvd-r disks as possible and burn with program like imgburn at 4x speed.
    It may also simply be a bad image file you are burning.

    Also, it might help (if you are using ImgBurn) to set your book type to DVD-ROM. However this isn't possible on all drives. Here's a guide to changing the book-type, if you drives manufacturer isn't there then you might be out of luck. Setting the Booktype with ImgBurn | Articles - Digital Digest

    EDIT: This also allows you to make it so that DVD+R's will work identically to DVD-R's. I've used this on all my burnt games which are all on DVD+R media.
