Re: Unable to play backups - 1 YEAR ISSUE

I'll give it a try, thanks. Does anyone have a working backup DVD they could mail out to me? I want to rule out the DVD/ISO for sure.

Re: Unable to play backups - 1 YEAR ISSUE

Another note to add, when the game crashes it doesn't usually go to DRE error screen, it just freezes.

Re: Unable to play backups - 1 YEAR ISSUE

Hey thanks for the reply. So I booted holding R and was able to play a backup of super smash Bros for 15 minutes with no errors or anything. Next I tried booting a backup of super Mario sunshine with R and it crashed around the same time it usually does (the intro video) and it still had weird color...

Re: Unable to play backups - 1 YEAR ISSUE

OK update everyone. I have been trying to get this cube to read backups for over a damn year. Recently I tried my friends laser from his cube. The laser showed the same symptoms I have been experiencing from my original laser and a brand new laser. What will happen is the gamecube will boot the back...

Re: Unable to play backups

Okay so I ordered other DVDs as recommended by Andross and tried his burning method - still no go. The new laser wouldn't read either of the two different burns I made, at 10ohms and at 60ohms. I installed the old laser to see if it would read these new DVDs. - nothing at 60ohms but at 10ohms it wou...

Re: Unable to play backups

Ive invested a lot into this cube and would hate to just give up and switch to an SD gecko at this point..

(Case is moded for full size dvd, xeno gc, burner, discs)..

Anyone having any suggestions on how I can get this thing to work? Could someone mail me a working full size backup :lol: :roll:

Re: Unable to play backups

I had bought a specific burner off of Ebay to burn the discs, it was the LITE-ON SOHW 1693S.

I don't think it was the burner either. The amount of work try to get this cube to read backups has been ridiculous!

Re: Unable to play backups

Thanks for the reply guys. Yes I got a fresh laser from ebay, it plays original gamecube discs just fine. This new laser will not read my backup gamecube games (12cm verbatim). I dont have any 8cm verbatims, only full size. The backup games/discs are not the problem. Before getting the new laser (my...

Re: Unable to play backups

Hi everyone... Something in this universe does not want me to play backups. I ordered a replacement laser, it arrived broken. Finally got a working one today.. Installed it and it'll play original games but wont play backups. I tried lowering down the pot from 125 all the way down to 10 and nothing....

Re: Unable to play backups

I ordered another laser, the lowest I could tweak the pot to was 10 ohms and at that it would only read my dvd-r games for 5 minutes before crashing. It read regular original games fine.

Hopefully this will fix it!

Re: Unable to play backups

Yup i can still play regular discs fine at regular ohms (80).. But backups are only reading at like 8ohms and are now playing at 8 fine.. But like you said the laser will die soon?

Re: Unable to play backups

Hi guys! Im back! University and stuff has got me busy but i finally got the chance to thinker at the gamecube. I cleaned it with some iso alcohol and it works!!! The bad news: Itll only read discs under 20 ohms.. How long will my laser last like this? Is it doomed to fail in a few weeks? Thanks!

Re: Unable to play backups

I can only access the menu when there is a disc in the console. Is this normal? The menu displays: XenoGC Shell v1. 06 and below this is a single @ symbol. The menu is blinking and is displayed in a weird blue and green color. Also, when i start up the console, my projector says its NTSC which is wh...

Re: Unable to play backups

Itll spin up and get to full speed for a few seconds and then decides theres no media. If you turn on the cube with the backup in it, itll spin up at the logo screen but then go to the gamecube menu and show no disc. :/ ive tried quite a few different types of disks

Unable to play backups - 1 YEAR ISSUE

Hey there, I installed a Xeno GC v2 half a year ago and still have not been able to play backups on it. I displays an orange light once the gc is booted and I can get into the xeno menu. I am burning with a LITE-ON SOHW 1693S DVD WRITER that I bought specifically for this. I use imgburn and run at t...

Re: GameCube Memory Card & SD Gecko Diagrams

The WFK wiring is a mess since I ordered the wrong break out board, but it is all bundled up using electrical tape to try and make it cleaner.
