View Full Version : Problem playing backed up Wii game

10-08-2009, 01:37 AM
Okay so after a few weeks of deliberating, I went and ordered a Drivekey mod chip. Install went smoothly, even with me being a noob when it comes to console modding. The problem is, on some of my burnt back ups, I constantly get an error saying "Disc is unreadable". Usually I can eject the disc, put it back in, and continue playing. After backing up Mario Kart Wii, that error comes up before every race and even booted me from online play. I backed up Punch Out and have not had any problems with that game whatsoever so I am sure it is not the chip. Could it be the media I am burning to? I am using Sony DVD-R's.

Sony ones are typically okay. I use Maxell-R's for mine, and sometimes I have the same issue, but the disc usually does have a spot on it.

So then Maxell's are the best than?

They're the most commonly used. -R though, gold-colored discs. I've never had a failed burn since I started using them, and I have over 90 working games now.

I think I will start out small. If I dont notice an improvement with the Maxell's, than I would have just bought 100 discs for no reason.

Do the Maxell discs have a grey data side? I know most burnable media has a purple or purple/blue side opposite the label side. I just want to know if the discs I am using (My Sony's have a purple data side), differ from Maxell discs.

Mine have the purple glow..

Oh ok...I thought the color of the data side of the disc mattered.

Well I finally got my hands on some Maxell DVD-R's and wow....pleasantly surprised. I have however noticed that the audio seems very choppy in some interludes of games. I noticed it in a few of the games I have downloaded so I doubt it could be the disc. Could it be that I didnt insulate the chip enough?
