Problems burning WII games

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have problems burning games/backups for my WII.

 

I work with a Samsung SH-S183A and my DVD's are Samsung Pleomax DVD+R 8x.

 

I have read that i need to change my booktype into DVD-rom. I did that but i don't think it works.

And i think that's because he doesn't see my current settings.

When i change it, it says it's done succesfully but it doesn't stay in this position and when i burn a dvd i don't think it's dvd-rom.

So ofcourse my WII doesn't take it.

 

Can you help me?

 

Thanx!!

Sabrina

Depending on your starting point, you might encounter more difficulty trying to do what you're doing.

 

If you are starting with making backups of games you own, you need one of a handful of specific drives to read (properly extract data from) the Wii disc. If you are starting with an image of a Wii game that was created using one of those drives, then ImgBurn (and most other image burning software) will easily do the trick. I'm guessing you're probably starting without such an image to work with.

 

Additionally, you can run the backups on a modded Wii only, if I'm not mistaken. ImgBurn is doing it's part, but you need more, unfortunately, if you're going to try to dupe/backup a Wii game starting from a Wii retail disc.

 

About the only other advice I can give is, "Google is your friend."

Wii console is fussy with media and burner used to burn backups. I used one of my liteon 20A1P drives and verbatim TY and Verb Yuden and very few worked burnt at 4X. Used some cheaper CMC and more worked than not but was still hit and miss. Switched to burning on one of my Benq 1650's to verbatim dvd+r and everyone has worked since. I have also used prodisc f03 or was it s03 and everyone is fine (this media is a few years old as I bought a couple of thousand so not much chance of you getting hold of any) some would say don't bother trying :D

 

Look to see if there is a firmware update for your writer and the Wii can use either - or + and + do not have to be set to DVD-ROM . I set all mine to DVD-ROM as I like to and it's force of habit (I would however say even though the wii will play +r the drives are fussy and It would be something to def set to DVD-ROM to rule out that as the reason the media failed to work)

 

Only burn them at max of 4x and make sure you tick verify.
