I kept my wii running for at least 3 days non stop (maybe 5 days). I backed up super paper mario at 8x. I tested other speeds and this is the best error free speed so far. I used the same verbatim brand dvd-r. The 1st dvd backup was 100% working, no freezes. I turned off my wii to adjust my sensor bar. Now that 1st backup dvd will not read no matter what I try. Then I make another backup with all the same specifics. Now it is working as it should. Any ideas as to what happend? Im guessing the data on the DVD somehow got corrupted from over long period use. I know that super paper mario actually goes into a power save mode too when you idle.
