Specs: WiiFREE 2.45 installed myself bought June 4, 3 pins cut Have 14 backups, these are the only cases I've encountered so far. All backups are USA, just like the console. I've used several medias but only these two worked consistently: MAXELL DVD-R 8x burned@2x w/Nero VERBATIM DVD-R 16x burned@2x w/Nero&ImgBurn I have an _NEC DVD_RW ND-3550A with 1.05 FW, 1.07 is available. Hello there, I have a problem reading backups with my USA Wii. I have a WiiFREE 2.45 installed, had to grind the chip and all since I bought it the 4th of June. Anyway ... problem: Example one: Playing WarioWare: Smooth'a'grovin' along ... It'll change to a new "level" BAM, Cannot read the disc. I let this happen a few times with a couple games before I opened my box, checked the install. Looks fine, I mean, it WORKS, just after a certain point, it STOPS. Anyway, so I burned another copy with a brand new media. Played until I got to the point it said it couldn't read, etc. Swapped the disc, worked great! BAM. A few stages later it occurs again. Damn...that sucked. Swapped again, works. etc. etc. etc. --- Example 2: Trauma Center: I'm cuttin' shit out of people and I finish and operation, YES! So I continue along to the stage selection screen and I hit the 8th thing. BAM, can't read that shit. Well, gee. I turn it off, try it again. BAM. off. BAM. off! BAM! *cries* I burn another copy on another media, works great! I didn't go further enough to see if it would reoccur on this game. --- Example 3: Godfather: Offer can't refuse, yada yada. Same story. Didn't burn more than one copy for this because I was already very annoyed. --- Any ideas? If you have any questions, I'll get right back at you with the answers. Thanks!
