    can i use a lightscribe media to burn my backups?

    subject... I'm kind of picky and hate the way it looks when you write in a dvd the name of a game on top of a dvd, so i was wondering if i could i use a lightscribe with no problems, meaning the wii wont strain for reading the lightscribe more than it would reading a normal dvd?

    by the way, the lightscribe i'm planning to buy are verbatin, i already rode thats the "best" brand in terms of burning so i thought it would make no difference for it to be a lightscribe, now would it?

    Hey bud. It's my understanding that being able to burn the outside label of the disc shouldn't affect the way the Wii's laser reads the data side. Just make sure you use DVDR- and not DVDR+. I never thought to use those. I think it's a pretty snazzy idea!

    Whether you lightscribe the label, print it in your photo printer (direct to disk) or you write it on with a Sharpie, it has no affect on the way the Wii will read the disk.

    The only things you should steer clear from when labelling your disks are:

    1) Ball point pens - these can damage the disk from the top causing read errors.
    2) Sticky Labels - Drives are hot due to the disk spinning so fast. This causes the glue to soften/melt and the label to peel, which then can jam the drive.

    Happy scribing.

    What is really cool is; Instead of wasting money on the blank disks, buy a USB-HDD and load your games from there.
    PLEASE SEARCH, READ, AND THINK BEFORE DOING ANYTHING.

    That depends. Personally I like to have mine lined up in the cases, and would go to the extreme of buying white cases for them. I would print the covers for the case, and even print direct onto the DVD.

    Since I have a Black Wii though, I have to go USB HDD.
