    They work fine for me, but not all wii consoles were created equally. Different ppl get different results. I personally have found mine plays any dvd-r, I throw at it, but I am certain to get a perfect burn from the PC.

    Be aware of longevity issues with poor quality media; what may work the day you burn it, it doesn't necessarily follow a day/week/month from that time will this remain true.

    Well excuse me for making it seem like I didn't read the thread, if you guys say Verbatim DVD-R's will do you good in the long run then Verbatim it is then. Telling me that crap media will ruin your laser and DVD+R's making your laser have a tough time reading then okay.

    Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim, Ritek G05 media are considered the best and yes DVD-R. It's more an issue of tolerances on each individual drive but your last sentence is accurate.

    Edit: I use Verbatim, $30 at my Sam's Club for 100 pk of beautiful MCC media.

    Personally I've used Sony DVD+R without problems. Though I will probably re-burn games in DVD-R once I get my hands on some decent quality ones.

    Currently I can only find cheap (too cheap) DVD-R around and I don't want to waste money/effort on bad DVDs that will stop working after a month.

    It can't really hurt my Wii, can it?

    Us DVD's that I use for my Wii backups

    So I have read that -R is what is recommended for Wii backups. Personally I use Verbatim DVD+R and burn at 16X. I use Verbatim for everything, Wii backups, HD-WMV's for the Xbox 360 and for AVC-HD disc for the PS3. In the case of the HD movies for the 360 and PS3 I mostly use the Verbatim DVD+R DL. I have never had an issue with Verbatim. I have some Gamecube backups from about six years ago that were burned on Maxell DVD+R and they are no longer readable the dye has degraded, but my seven year old Verbatim DVD+R Gamecube and Xbox backup's play just fine still. I have tried many brands and it seems that I always end up back at Verbatim. They aren't the cheapest but IMO they seem like their the best.

    That's why people recommend verbatim DVDs

    I personally have had trouble with DVD+R now as SSX blur doesn't run properly on it. It worked fine on DVD-R (different brand also though)
    Problem is that most DVD-R around here are still el-cheapo brands and it's near impossible to find Verbatim ones.

    I'm having trouble playing burned backup games. I burn them to a DVD using ImgBurn, tried both 3x and 4x write speeds. I'm using TDK-R DVDs and NeoGamma and have version 4.2 Wii. The Wii is an older one, got it back in November of 2008. The problem I'm having is whenever I try running the burned game from NeoGamma it says loading disk, then shows a flickering neon green screen. However, the sound works and i can click buttons and it is responsive, just the video does not seem to work. Any ideas on what the problem is?

    I've found them for $20 for a 100pk here at Sam's Club. They're even printable.

    I do back up with TDK +R and have no problem. As long as the speed is 4x. Thanks
