    Just installed the Drivekey, and happy as a puppy :D

    Have to say I am very pleased with it. Installation could not be easier, never opened a wii before, but hey, that was also a piece of cake

    I had only two different medias to test backups with, DAXON-AZ3-00 (DVD+r BENQ) and RITEKF1 (DVD-R Traxdata). I've read that DVD+r puts a strain on the wii's laser, and also that Ritek media should be good for backups.

    But here is my problem; backups burned with the DVD+R's work just fine with dvd-rom booktype, but the Ritek DVD-R's does not work at all. just tells me to shut down and restart the wii.

    Any thoughts?


    BTW; Thanks for a real helpful forum

    Yeah, might be down to bad media, had many problems with the traxdata's when burning bootable dvd's (OS installation disks, bootable tools/utilities).

    This even with 2x. but i burned the benq's at 4x, and they work just fine.

    wellwell, i'll be heading out tomorrow to buy some higher quality dvd-r's, verbatim or so. might just pick up some more benq's just in case my writer is having problems with the other media


    Is it true about the DVD+R's straining the wii's laser? concerned about that part.

    I use taiyo yuden dvd-r master disks never had a problem I used LG dvd-r (when i was waiting for the taiyo disk) and they work but skip alot and some times wouldnt load I had to eject the disk put it in a few times till it would read properly.

    Never had skips or had to eject a taiyo yuden disk and only cost me $20 more for 100 then a cheap lg disk so the cost is nothing for the quality you get!!!!
