    Are Sony Dvd-R generally good for Wii Use?

    My local stores don't carry Verbatim or any exceptional Dvd-R, So I was wondering, would Sony be a good disc to use? And can poor Dvd-R really affect your Wii's laser?

    easiest thing to do is put a blank in the computer and start imgburn and look at Disc ID, that will state who made it. If it is a CMC Magnetic pressing, toss in in the garbage, if MCC/TY/G05/whatever, you have a better quality disc

    That's nice to know, But I'd like to know if the discs are okay before I blow $20 on them. I know the Memorex is crap, There are little bubbles in the plastic and the Wii sounds like it's about to die when it tries reading them.

    I won't be using the DVD-R for Wii games, Just Gamecube since they won't work on WFBS.

    It is impossible to know who pressed the blanks without buying them first, hence my previous statement. If they are shoddy, take them back for a refund

    I can take them back? I didn't know they'd accept it.

    Most stores will be fine with returns - just say something like "these didn't work for me" lol.

    Unless you bought it from a discount store...

    Sony makes ok dvd media, a good second choice, as long as it's manufactured by Sony. If you can find any Sony 8x media would be better, Sony used TY to manufacture their 8x media.
