    shannon, check the extension of the file. There have been no backup's released that are too big for a single sided dvd yet without the need to overburn. You might be using images that haven't been unscrambled yet.

    .wii = scrambled (and too big to burn anyway)
    .iso = unscrambled

    you have to download an unscrambler that will convert your .wii image to a .iso image if that's the case

    open it up then go to file you should see New Shell click it. then drag the .wii file in twice and on the second one change the .wii to .iso

    thats wierd because i am able to do it
    does it show you exactly where the file is when you drag it is like desktop/users/(yourname)/(the name of your game).wii then desktop/users/(yourname)/(the name of your game).iso except change the .wii to .iso at the end
    o yeah and don't forget to drop unscrambler 0.4 in before you put your wii file in
    it should look like this

    /Users/***/Desktop/unscramble /Users/***/Desktop/Cooking\ Mama\(\346\227\245\347\211\210\).wii /Users/Matt/Desktop/Cooking\ Mama\(\346\227\245\347\211\210\).iso
    then press return! I hope this works...

    I too have an intel macbook.. another question for you.. i burnt Mario Power Tennis but i just changed the file name from .gcn to .iso without unscrambling it.. i put it in my wii it came up with Nintendo.. then it said Camelot and then it just didn't load.. do you think this is because i didnt unscramble it?

    Well I guess its time you forgot about the Wii and started a thread in the Mac section about this problem you have now.
    Have you tried everythign on your Mac?
    If it dosent help i would recommend a re-format.

    .gcn is a gamecube game. Not wii. Renaming it to .iso and burning with img burn should work just fine. No need to unscramble. I've done it many times. Maybe a bad burn?

    Now that I have the program to convert .wii format to iso and I know how to burn iso can I take a step back and ask how to get the .wii backup with a mac? The only way I know how is with a pc and an LG drive but the program to do that saves as iso so I must assume you guys are using something else to get the .wii backups.
