    Phillips DVD-R (using them for the past 10 years) no problems whatsoever
    Thanks everyone for the great support.
    Hope to hear from you soon, cause i'm getting ready to retire from the modding scene.
    Gonna start a new profession.

    most of my back ups are done with:
    1. Ritek DVD+R
    2. Sony DVD+R
    3. Verbatim DVD-R

    all are working flawlessly, never fail, never had any +R issue.

    Ritek and sony......no, why, the wii have problems reading the +R media
    Verbatim.....yes, why, because it is -R media and it reads flawless
    My observation from all the test i've done to my wii
    Thanks everyone for the great support.

    I ran out of my FugiFilm DVD-R's so now I am using both:

    Verbatim Digital Movie DVD-R - Burned 3 so far, flawless, no problems. Disk is nice, is a tiny bit thicker, (has a better top coating), looks like a movie reel, but is probably better scratch resistant.

    Sony DVD+R - Burned 4 so far, flawless, no problems.

    FYI, I have a D2pro V2 w/ WiiClip and using an LG external USB burner.
