Don't use Nexxtech discs from Circuit City
While I am still new to this forum and I am sure this topic has been bashed in the head to death I'll post anyway since I learned something new.
Don't use those cheesy Nexxtech dvd-r 16x discs from circuit city.
First I thought something might be wrong with my wiihack'ed but then I tried my trusty sony discs and it loaded up just fine (pic below).
The game would load then eventually I would get the message "...wii cannot read the disc...."
And I realize everyone likes to use verbatim but so far I've had good success with the sony's above and similar memorex discs.
nexxtech works i've burned a few games on them, i had like 20 of them lying around...but yeah i agree with verbatim sony and memorex...staples brands work as well...1 brand that will not work is HP

One thing that's difficult about working with multiple Wii consoles is that they are not all alike. Some Wii consoles will do fine with the cheapest, light-on-the-dye DVD discs and others will reject anything other than Verbatim DVD-R.
Other reported acceptable substitutes appear to be the Sony DVD-R and then Maxell and HP appear to vie for third place. Again, each report of acceptance is countered by multiple reports of failure. If the price is good, try a few but be prepared for immediate or even eventual failure.
