    So far, the only games that have worked for me, besides Mario Strikers, have been on DVD+RW. I use WiiKey.

    I use TDK DVD+R and Dynex DVD-R. But I really only use the Dynex for movie backups, because they're not that high quality. The TDK DVD+R's worked for my WiiKey setup discs but not games.

    Bought Sony DVD+RW today and they work great! I think my burner is primarily for backing up movies and something it does when it burns onto a rewritable dvd makes it easily readable on the modded Wii. Will be testing my external Plextor burner tomorrow and will report back.

    Hey all,

    Im getting the D2pro9 chip and was just wondering if DVD-RW work with the wii?

    On the official D2Pro website, it only lists dvd-r, dvd+r and dvd+rw. Has anyone had experience getting -RW to work and if so what brands are recommended?

    DVD Media for wii Games (MODS)

    I use Taiyo Yuden -R X8

    Haven't Fail a single one yet... a Spindle of 100. Cheaper than Sony's


    Cheers

    jebise101,

    thanks for letting me know about the sony -rw. It seems like a good idea to only use them for updates if they are not officially supported. Might help maintain the wii laser.
