    Question Recording .ISO's

    So as i was reading "e39" guide to creating and recording .ISO's
    he said you need one of these drives:LG GDR-8161b
    LG GDR-8162b
    LG GDR-8163b
    LG GDR-8164b
    LG GDR-8082N
    for dumping wii games.
    I need clarification.Do you also need one of those drives if your ONLY RECORDING .ISO WITH IMG BURN.
    One more question is there any other Dvd-R discs cept for Verbatim thats cheaper and almost as good as the Verbatim(Quantity 15-30)
    (Btw im still new to some of these things)

    You can use any DVD burner to burn games.

    From the way I read it you need one of those drives if you want to dump games using RawDump or something similar. Once you have the .iso I don't think it matters what kind of drive you use. Then again I'm also new at this and could be totally wrong.

    FWIW, I attempted to burn two .iso's tonight that I dumped via WiFi and neither worked. I fought what I've read to save a few bucks and bought Gigaware -R discs on sale, I'm hoping that's the issue and not something else I've missed. So tomorrow I'll get some Verbatims and see what happens...

    I used ImageBurn set at 2x speed w/ .iso's that I am 99% sure are good dumps. I read somewhere tonight that I should change a setting in ImageBurn to "Incremental" write, or something like that. I made that change and am burning them again right now, we'll see how that goes.

    Edit - Changing the Write Type to Incremental in the ImageBurn options didn't help, 3 coasters and counting. The backup loader I'm using just goes to a black screen.

    Verbatims are great. I burned about 20 in a month and haven't gotten one coaster.
