I read somewhere that DVD+R's hurt the wii by sending too much power to the laser or something... this seems hard to believe. I know drive can be picky about media and that is why I thought it was best to us -R.
Do DVD+R hurt the wii?
I have burned a wii game on DVD+R and it is tested and working. Will it hurt my wii?
Im not concerned so much with compatibility as harm to hardware.
If I were a new guy, like yourself, and was given the info from above....... I would realize that because there are MANY problems posted about using DVD+R, that I should just use DVD-R. Even if someone were to come here and say "No they will not hurt your Wii", the chances that your DVD+R disk dont work are great. I guess the saying goes," you can lead a horse to water (the copied quotes), but cant make it drink" Good luck with all of this,
+R discs are actually a write once variation of the +RW format. Some very good reading on the subject of DVD format in general...

If you do not know do not respond to this thread.
This thread is not about compatibility. This thread is about if a DVD+R will hurt a wii. I have already read many threads that say exactly what you said... that's nothing new... that information is all over the internet... that's not the information I am looking for. I hope you can comprehend what I am trying to say, I don't think I can make it any simpler. Do you get it? Let me know if you don't and I will try and dumb it down for you some more.
I did not see anything regarding the wii but the information was still interesting. thanks.
they say its bad, because it requires more to read... thats it, its not good, but its not BAD, you can take it as you wish, but theres no study in this, its more what people to believe
like Taiyo Yuden, or Verbatim, are it, or youll kill your drive in no time due to the EVIL DYE =\
and YES thats fact, we have told people to burn on -R and it worked when the +R failed 3 - 5 times
I have some DVD+RW left from about 4 or 5 years ago, some of them still have xbox games in it, lol. I took them out yesterday because I just updated the firmware of the Wiikey and I like to try some new games with it. The game works fine so does that mean as long as the Wii can read it, I can keep on using +RW or +R that I have left from the xbox period?
