    Is there a backup loader that plays DVD+R disks?

    I have like 100 DVD+R disks and I don't want them to go to waste.

    Yes there are backup loaders that play DVD+Rs, everyone that's ever been made.DVD+Rs work but they stress the wii's laser and may sometimes give you errors depending on the brand and what speed you burn. Just burn at low speeds such as 2x but be warned DVD+Rs may eventually kill your laser early.

    Basically the dye in DVD+Rs are thicker than those in DVD-Rs which causes the wii to work much harder for the wii to read them, this eventually causes your wii's laser to stop reading games earlier than it should.

    I'd just sell the DVD+Rs you have and buy some Verbatim DVD-Rs, you can get them pretty cheap on ebay

    The Verbatim DVD-R also work well with multigame Gamecube backups.
