Post your Verbatim (up to 16 x) & Taiyo Yudens ( ONLY up to 8 x)..BEST DEAL finds here with the sale expiration
Just make sure the ones you buy are made in either Japan/ Singapore/ or Taiwan.....they seem to work the best
Now Some of you that may not have read in our forums much...may be wondering..why just those 2 brands?
well these 2 brands seem to work best...and longest without issues...(1 example is early laser death from inferior quality dvd's)
* The best Verbatims are made by Taiyo Yuden from Japan
So if you happen to find some really good deals on these recommended brands..
Please post them with the expiration date and what country they are in... thanks
- NOTE: if you are using other brands than our recommended disc's and having difficulties with DRE's/SCREWED UP LASERS.....Don't bother asking why your backups don't work
- NOTE: if you are not using the above brands but AND not the correct speed X or not the ones made in the countries mentioned above ....Don't bother asking why your backups don't work
- and they already have been answered upteen times before
- DO NOT TALK ABOUT ANY OTHER BRANDS ...THIS THREAD IS ONLY FOR POSTING DEALS
- DO NOT POST QUESTIONS IN THIS THREAD(you have been warned>no mercy)
- Now Please Understand that this THREAD IS NOT FOR POSTING ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL.....BREAK ANY OF THE POSTING RULES ABOVE...U WILL SPEND TIME IN our READING ROOM TO LEARN TO READ THE RULES....lol
Some other brands may work initially however they will not work later....
they may shorten your wii laser life as the laser has to work much harder to read the data on the disc

I think I have you both beat:
Verbatim 4.7GB 16X DVD-R 50 Packs Cake Box Disc with Advanced Azo Recording Dye $12.99
Newegg.com - Verbatim 4.7GB 16X DVD-R 50 Packs Cake Box Disc with Advanced Azo Recording Dye - CD / DVD Media
I have never had any problems with Maxell from Walmart.
I just look at the customer reviews. A review on the Newegg site posted above says they work on Wii ISOs. I might get some of those.
thanks for the links...will be purchasing some soon. My Memorex DVD+R's just arn't cutting it. The games play but there are a few audio issuses and the city, in NEED FOR SPEED UNDERCOVER, wont load fast enough.
I looked everywhere for Verbatims today and no stores carried them. I ended up picking up Sony DVD-R 16x (from Walmart) and so far they work great.
Sony has worked great for me and my wii (softmod)
Burned at 4x and 8x and no issues at all.
I just bought 100 dvd-r verbatim at officemax for $15 only (it was $25 with $10 off coupon)
I will be using those soon
I have had no problem with memorex-r and also have some HP (lightscribe). I only bought the memorex because it was what the store had at the time. The lightscribe because it was all i could find locally in (LS) -R.
I know there are the discussions about media.
Is Verbatim recommended by so many because of general quality or wii compatibility? In any of the discussion i had read- verbs werent mentioned. It was always Taiyo Yuden.
I have mostly bought cheap stuff. Last winter i picked up Playo 60pack cake for $5 a piece. +R. I have used about 100 of them. No problems with any. (Just DVD movies/data though.) I have went through and checked them at later dates and none have had any problems.
I just bought these. The packaging appears to be identical to the +R playos i had. We'll see. They have good buy.com ratings though. Hard to argue with 15¢ a disc. I probably wont use them for games i plan on keeping. I like the lightscribe for that.
I would rather use labelflash but those are impossible to find locally and horribly expensive online...
I wonder if it is peoples drives that cause problems? I have heard many people complain about coasters. I have burned probably 500 CD/DVD with only cheap media. CMC/no name. I can only recall one that had errors.
Most everything is CMC anyways...
