Just need some guidance!

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to burn Mario Super Sluggers for my GF. It is a Wii game. I followed everything here. Our Wii is modded and plays other burned games. But I burned the image to a disc and when I instered it, it says "please eject error" what am I doing wrong? Ill try to attach a picrure of disc Im using. And the Wii is modded with Homebrew. I don't know more than that.

I have an idea, but I'd need to see a log of the burn of this disc.  In ImgBurn, choose Help and near the bottom of that menu you'll find the log option.  I forget what it's called.  The folder opens with the log in it.  Open the .LOG file and find the burn of the Mario Super Sluggers disc.  Copy and paste the entire log, both the write and verify stages, of this disc into a post here.

 

Though I have no experience with Wii's, given the eject error is probably a read error and since you said you've gotten this to work before, I am guessing the problem lies with the quality of the disc used for burning.  The log will tell the type of disc used.

Thank you, btw

Well, yes and no.  It was what I expected but it doesn't explain something.

 

These Wii games you got working before.  You used the same discs and the same burner?  If you did, it doesn't explain why those worked but this one didn't.

 

This was exactly what I was expecting:

I 15:31:45 Destination Media Type: DVD-R (Disc ID: CMC MAG. AM3)

 

I was relatively sure you were using CMC Magnetics media.  CMC makes the worst junk out there.  A disc eject error, at least on the PS2 that I'm familiar with, means the system could not read the disc.  Cheap media would help explain this.  Just because a burn completes doesn't mean it completed successfully or well.

 

Verbatim DVD-R you find in brick and mortar stores is the Life Series, which is CMC's junk.  Now, what might explain, but then again might not, is sometimes with CMC media, you'll get 50% in a package that are good and the rest are bad.  That's the nature of cheap media.  It's unreliability.

 

Though it may not help in this case, the first thing I'd try is switching to quality media.  If you're going to use Verbatim, then use the Verbatim DataLife Plus (NOT Life Series.) or the AZO discs you only find online.  However, guess who bought Verbatim recently?  Yep, CMC and their DataLife Plus DVD-R manufacturing process has changed so their DataLife Plus series DVD-R is no longer compatible with the LG WH16NS60 I use.  So, I've switched to Taiyo Yuden DVD-R.  I find both Verbatim DataLife Plus DVD-R and Taiyo Yuden DVD-R on Amazon.com, but they're shipping by ass now when it comes to tech.

 

Again, can't guarantee that will solve this particular problem, but it is what I'd try first to troubleshoot.

Okay, Ill have to try. Sadly my GF's Uncle burned the other games years ago when the Wii was in it's prime. So I don't know HOW he burned it, or what files. I figured it would be much easier now. Her Uncle used "Maxwell DVD+R. Up to 8x, 4.7Gb, etc." So Ill have to just look into better discs because I'm pretty sure these are just run-of-the-mill off some Walmart shelf somewhere. I'll try to locate the discs you specified, and if the error persists then it must be user error. So different disc and different burner, to sum it all up.

Actually, what you said helps explains a lot.  When you say they were Maxwell DVD+R, I think you mean Maxell.  Maxell used to make a quality DVD disc last time I tried them over 10 years ago.  I would be surprised if Maxell used CMC on those discs you had that worked before.

 

So, I'm more inclined to believe your problem is related to the Wii being unable to read the disc you burned.  And cheaper quality media could go some ways to explaining that.

 

Also, more than half the problems we see on this forum are caused by CMC media and other cheaper brands.  Most, but not all, of course, of these problems disappear when people switch to the better quality media.  I can't guarantee it will work in this case, of course, but it is what I'd try first.

Alright man thanks that really gives me perspective. Lookin for brands that don't have this CMC is extremely helpful. Im fairly certain this will work, I'll try different discs and see how that goes. Thank you so much for your help, a little bit of confidence goes a long way.
