If you're Wii was bought last christmas, then you'll probalbly have a d-3 or d-4 DVD drive in your Wii.Those cannot play DVDR disks.So you'll have to stick to USB loading.
Here's a website where you can check you're serialnumber of you're wii to see witch Drive it cotains.

If the Wii was purchased last Christmas then you are on the edge of being able to play backup DVDs. There are chips in the newer Wii's that prevents that. If this is your case then you will have no choice but to use a USB drive to play your backups. Enter you serial here on this site. If it comes back as a D3-2 you will have to go with a USB hard drive.
