    I also agree! Burned SSBB on 5 DL discs, worked. Got friend to put labels on them (as I only use lightscribe) then errors loading from all 5 discs!!!!

    Stay away from labels is my advise

    When I first started burning games I bought a pack of stick on labels and whenever I put them on the disc, it would have a bit of trouble going into my Wii and it sounded like it was spinning slower. I'm not sure if it was just that the labels were way too thick or if all stick on labels will do that.

    ya it will mess up the drive for sure, had a few repairs that were caused by that. if its a must get the inkjet printables, but honestly the silver top blanks work best.

    When you go with printable disks, but you get very limited in what you can pick as far as "good" media. Same goes for Lightscribe. The discounted brands I've seen tend to be CMC when it's DVD+R, which isn't bad if you have the right type of burner, but probably not good in general.

    You can get Verbatim DVD+R and DVD+RDL printable, but it costs way more than it's worth to get a nice picture on it... (which might smudge if you get water on it

    any cheap printable dvd media is all you need. i've got over 260 games now and there's no point wasting money on the over-rated and over-priced verbatims...

    Adding a stick on label will increase the mass of the disk. With an increased mass, the inertial force will also increase. Therefore, the Wii's drive will have to work harder to read the disc. That being said, I think putting on a label would be detrimental to the Wii itself.

    We had a friend bring a copy of ssbb over to play with one of the sticky labels on it. the wii tried to read for about a minute and then came back with a read error and we tried to eject it. It pulled the front of label back trying to eject it and we quickly had to figure how to safely to get it out of the drive. We had to learn the hard way. Don't make our mistake!

    Rather than start a new thread I figured I would search and bump an old one instead.

    I'd like to print labels to have the discs looking pretty through the dvd drive window mod, but I wanted to double check here before potentially messing up my wii. Is it for sure a bad idea to print paper labels for wii discs? Maybe it just comes down to how the labels are applied, ensuring the edges are firmly adhered so that they won't catch any of the slot loading mechanism?

    Should I just get a pack of colored sharpies and freehand the disc art?
