    that would be a waste of a dual layer disc. you should use DVD-R for best compatibility and dual layer is not necessary for any game other than Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime Trilogy (when it comes out).

    should be okay.
    Have you thought about using a USB Loader?

    i have a 320GB Seagate FreeAgent Go and it is more than enough room for me. i have 250GB partitioned for wii games and i doubt I will ever fill it.

    I Usually use DVD's for games that are Japanese or ENG patch Versions to leave room for English games. Sony DVD-r are the best dang DVD there is. XBox360, Xbox, Wii and PS2 all read them. If you're looking for Dual Layer I know Sony Makes them too.

    Just FYI. The disks used to be white, now they're black. U can get a 50pack for 30dollars at Wal Mart, etc. 30$ might be a lot to you, but when you don't have "coasters" piling up on your coffee table, you'll be happy.

    $30 for a 50 pack is pretty resonable. and 320gb is alot of space. i looked online at future shop and its $99 which is a good deal. i might end up getting it.
