    Wii backups with sata dvd writers??

    Hey all,

    im wondering if anyone out there is successfully and consistently using any sata dvd writers for wii backups. i have seen the LG 8000 series that has been recommended but i am running a new monster and doing all sata.
    thanks for any feedback or suggestions in advance.

    i7 920 12gb overclocked 4.1 - (2) wii's running 3.4u and 4.2 with both using usb hdd multiple partitions fat32,wbfs,wbfs

    LG LH-20A1L with Sony discs has worked like a charm for a long time for me. Not sure about newer sata drives though (that's 2 years old). Discs are key, though.

    I would reccommend verbatim DVD-R as they reduce wear on ur wii's laser and cause less problems... Its said that certain brands actually cause ur laser to break cuz of strain.

    I like how both the above posts don't answer the question at all.

    Anyway, I've been using a SATA LG GGC-H20L for burning Wii games and it's worked for me in the past, although now I load all my games from a USB hard drive. Whether a drive is SATA or IDE or USB or whatever really shouldn't matter, as long as you have quality media and a good image. The Wii laser seems to be quite picky, at least from my experience (not surprising as the Gamecube is the same way), but I've had many successful burns using my SATA burner.
    Hail to the king, baby!
