    Burning Wii backups on Memorex DVD-R?

    I just got a pack of Memorex DVD-R's for burning LEGAL backups. Will they work fine or should I get a different brand?

    And what is the difference between DVD-R and DVD+R?

    I use a DVD+RW right now, and it works fine... Just clicks very loud...


    Thanks

    First off DONT uses +RW at all. You are destroying your lens becauses its working harder to read the discs. Second, dont use +R's unless you change the booktype to -R. Not all drives can read +R, but all drives can read -R. Just change the booktype to -R and youll be good, but stay away from RW's

    They also say the darker the dye on the disc, the easier it is for the lens to read thus the lens lasts longer

    they work fine with legal backups, just don't try illegal ones, they wont work . but yeah stick to dvd-r, brands that i use that work great in no particular order:
    Sony
    Memorex
    Verbatim

    Thanks a lot guys

    I went with Memorex and they work fine, with a lot less clicking than the RW's.

    I found that Verbatim -R or Taiyo Yuden -R is best burning backups
