    Angry Why Games dont work with DVD+R....?

    I have a modded Wii with DCPRO chip, when I burn iso images on DVD-R they work fine with Wii. Same image dont work if I use DVD+R. I have tried burning on Max write speed using imageburn as well but no luck.

    Is there anything I am missing? please help as I have baught a 100pk DVD+R.

    The Wii is very picky with Media even some DVD-R will not work. What is recommended is DVD-R by Verbatim, Sony, TDK and some others, burn using ImgBurn at 4x speed for single layer games they currently all are except for SSBB. For SSBB use Verbatim DVD-R DL disc burn using ImgBurn at 2.4x speed.

    The following thread has some more detailed explaination by Dark Mod.

    that does it, i am NOT defending +r again. its clear now -r generally has better compatability. i just wish one type died off years ago like hd-dvd and blueray today
