    Using the correct LG drive and RAWDUMP, I've created a Wii backup ISO, which is 4,699,979,776 bytes in size (the correct size for a Wii game). I've tried burning it on several types of media, with no successful loading on my Wii console.

    Here are five DVD types I've tried
    * Dynex DVD+R - at x1, x2, & x2.4
    * Sony DVD-RW - at x1
    * Sony DVD-R - at x1, x2, & x2.4
    * Philips DVD+RW - at x1, x2, & x2.4
    * Verbatim DVD-R - at x1 & x4

    My console is a DMS Chipset, with the Cyclowiz modchip installed and successfully upgraded to the v3.0B firmware (most recent to-date).

    Gamecube backups will play fine, but Wii backups will only give DREs (Disc Read Errors).

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!



    Thanks!

    Yes. I believe I used Rawdump v2.0 to convert it to ISO.

    *** UPDATE *** - My system is still not playing Wii backups!

    My Current Status

    Using the correct LG drive and RAWDUMP, I've created a Wii backup ISO, which is 4,699,979,776 bytes in size (the correct size for a Wii game). I've tried burning it on several types of media, with no successful loading on my Wii console.

    Philips DVD+RW - at x1, x2, & x2.4
    Verbatim DVD-R - at x1, x2, x2.4, & x4

    The Three DVD Burners I Have Tried

    LG GSA-4166B (This is not the same drive the ISOs were made on)
    Pioneer DVR-1810
    NEC ND-3520A


    My System Specifications

    NTSC - USA
    DMS Chipset
    Cyclowiz v2 installed and upgraded to v3.0B (Most recent update to-date)
    Successfully booting personal Gamecube backups

    My personal Gamecube backups will play fine, but Wii backups will only give black screen DREs (Disc Read Errors).

    1 way to possibly see if it is a rawdump 2.0 dumping process problem is to download 1 of the games you are trying to back up. Most games that are downloaded work properly. So try downloading 1 of them and burning it to disc to see if it works.

    If it does work then you either have a bad LG DVD-ROM drive or your not dumping the Wii game to your computer properly using Rawdump 2.0

    You could also use ImgBurn and make a copy of a GameCube game on some of the media you are trying to burn to. If the Game Cube game can play using the Media you are attempting to back up the Wii games with then I would assume it is not a media issue.

    Plus as they suggested above. Make sure if it is an out of region game disc that it is supported with region override. Switch your burning application.
