    Wii wont play backed up games. Wii too new? doing something wrong?

    Hello Everyone. I am newer here but have been reading

    I have purchased a used Wii from a friend. she says "Its about 2 years old"

    I did the soft mod and followed the directions down to the T.

    Everything went smooth. I used the Indiana PWNS method.

    I have a backed up game but wont play. I get a black screen saying read error.

    I have burned with 3 different programs. When i burn i select 1x speed but it goes to ~4x. i have used ultraiso, nero, imgburn.

    What am i doing wrong?

    how do i tell if my Wii is too new t play backed up games and need to go USB?

    and help to get this working would be great

    thank you everyone.

    You will probably need to go USB. In the end, it's also cheaper than always burning DVD's.

    ok

    I wanted to burn the games to have a hard backup that no one touches in case the hard drive went down.

    Can i see do that and if the hard drive happens to go down i can just re-image the disks and put them back on the HD?

    also, anyone have a link to a site that can explain the emulators for n64, SNES, NES, sega and so on?

    go HERE and see what drive chip you have. If its only 2 years old you probably cannot play burned media. Usb loading is much better anyhow (faster, no need to get off your duff to change games, wont kill your laser prematurely).
    I have a spare hdd that i keep stashed away in case my main one fails.
