    I use Memorex DVD-R and I was wondering which disc functions the best for wii backups.

    I have used the memorex discs in the past. the wii seems to read them just fine. I did however have more errors while burning the discs then i do if i use sonys or verbatiums. Right now ive been using hp discs and they work well too.

    Memorex works just good enough for me, zero problems.

    Any disk I can get my hands on work for me (datawrite mach4, no name printable, Jetplay)

    I think it's combination of things quality of burner and media I have used lots of cheap media on my 2 Pioneer burners and never had a problem

    Memorex has caused problems, some work in the disc channel, some only work in Gecko and some only work in NeoGamma, and some don't work at all.

    I used Kodak's before that and every single disc worked great.

    Verbatim, TDK, Ridisk...

    Use Sony DVD on Wii? Maybe can destroy it XD.
     
  9. I recommend Sony DVD-Rs. They are the best price and quality wise! They also seem to work well for PS2s and the CD-Rs like dreamcasts. ;D So I say stick with Sony. I've had one bad burn out of 400! That's really good!

    =] I can get a 100 spindle for around 19 dollars.

    sony is ok for me. The only issue till now was new super mario, which doesnt load in neogamma and goes back to the system menu.


    But i'm sure it is a release problem.

    "taiyo yuden" seems to be very good quality, never tested myself (verbatim so far) but often heard in specialized forum that they were the best ...

    I use taiyo yuden discs on mine or maxell discs using their own dye (MXL RG04). Normally I'd use verbatims, but my wii doesn't like them [​IMG].
