    that may be true, but from experience my own created backups have usually all ran smoother in the drive that the original copies. For example a friends original disc of COD 3 ran shockingly making whirring a and clucking noises, it was so bad that i thought my wii was going to die at any moment!! but the backup ran smooth (btw COD 3 is a crappy game avoid at all costs!!!)
    Fast burning on good media for the win, i dont have time to wait

    Just because the motor is making more noise, doesn't necessarily mean it is more stressed than if it is not. I guarantee that, unless the factory made disc is scratched, it will stress out your lens less than a burned copy of the game. Also, when comparing 2 discs of the same batch, brand etc. the disc that was burned with the lowest write speed will generally stress the lens out less than the disc which was written with a faster write speed. Just a suggestion, not something that needs to be done, but the fact that you "don;t have time to wait" isn't a good enough excuse for your Wii :P

    I guess it's important to mention the hardware too, when you talk about media.

    I have a Lite-On (6th Series, mentioned to be very good for backups) and a D2B-LegsCut ... I tend to get better results with Sony+R than Verbantim-R.

    I ll do more testing as soon as I get more files ...

    Okeay, so I burned another Sony DVD+R and it worked fine and I was all happy. But when I tried to play the game a second time it did not, my other two games, one Sony DVD+R and one Verbantim DVD-R still work .... this is strange.

    I did some research, and found an article, which explains that burning at slow speeds is something good:
    Q. Why does the speed at which you burn a CD make a difference?

    I also found another article which explaisn that DVD+R is better than DVD-R
    Why DVD+R(W) is superior to DVD-R(W) on CD Freaks.com - Reviews

    So, well, in other board I read that Sony DVD-R are a good choice if Verbantim DVD-R don't work well ... so I ll try these next ... wish me luck.
