    I know wii's are finicky about discs, but can is this a possible scenario? I downloaded mario party 8 as an iso, burned it using philips DVDR- and it worked perfect. Just got my LG DVD ROM drive today, stuck it in a 5.25 external case hooked it up to my laptop,put in zelda, dumped the img ( was perfect size by the way) burned it using the same media, popped it in the wii, it shows the game but once i hit start, it gives me a disc error. Could it really be the media even tho it worked on another game?

    yes it could be, last week i tried the same thing with Mortal kombat and Mario Party 8, Mortal kombat worked fine, but the Mario Party 8 did the same thing you just mentioned, Threw out the disc that was Memorex and got my TDK's out re-burned worked perfectly

    im sure you tried this but when i backed up my copy of mary party 8 i put it in and it didnt work but then i put it in again and it worked fine so just because the game doesnt work the first time you might want to try it a few times after that... just a thought

    yea i tried that, because i stuck it in seconds after i burned it, so i thought maybe i'd let it marinate a bit, so i did, still didn't work.

    slowing the drive down is unnecessary

    mines on 6x works fine with everything i have thrown at it

    i actually slowed it down, cause when i first got the chip installed and brought it home, the thing was making noise like it was going to explode. so I slowed it down and it still makes a lil humming sound, but no where near what it was making before. at 6x i could literally hear the thing from across the room

    Just thought that some may find this information useful.
    I just recieved my Yudens, and burned the same file of zelda that I used for the Philips DVDR, and it worked perfect on the YUDEN. So I guess you just gotta find the right media for your wii. thanks to everyone who contributed.
