    I asked this question in a previous topic, but now that it's on the second page I think it's basically a lost cause (especially in this section). I have a Wiikey v1 and I need to burn a game onto a DVD+R disc. I was told that I should booktype it to DVD-ROM before I burn it. I've tried to do this, but I don't know which manufacturer to choose in ImgBurn because they don't match my drives. Here's exactly what ImgBurn says about my disc drives:

    HL-DT-ST DVDRAM_GSA-H40N RA00 (ATA)
    PIONEER DVD-RW DVRTD08L 2.50 (ATA)

    Is there a way around the manufacturer thing? If not, would I be ok just burning it onto the DVD+R disc without book typing it to DVD-ROM?

    i've burnt lots of games on dvd+r just because we had a stack of them laying around. they work fine(burnt about 10 games, only having problems with 1 now: wii music).

    i cant set my drive to booktype to dvd-rom, img burn wont do it and neither will a few other programs i found that offer the ability to change booktype. i think its my older, crappier dvd burner.

    but its not required to burn as dvd-rom if ur wii can read dvd+r. try it and see.

    The manufacturer of the drive and the brand of the drive sometimes don't match. Some companies will buy a batch of drives as an OEM and resell them under their own names. Don't worry, just set the booktype to DVD-ROM for both and you're fine.

    Actually, with Wiikey, you probably don't have to set the booktype but it's always a good idea. [​IMG]

    With ImgBurn you have 8 choices to choose for the manufacturer of the disc drive. You have to choose one in order to booktype it. Is there a way to find out the actual manufacturer of my disc drive(s)?

    Does this mean I can just burn the image straight to a DVD+R disc without worrying about booktyping it?

    OR use nero 6 (or newer) and at the end before pressing "BURN" check on the options and change the booktype there...!!! [​IMG]

    Not all of us have the cash to buy nero [​IMG]. My question still hasn't been answered though. Am I safe to burn the Wii game onto a DVD+R disc without booktyping?

    Well I just burned my disc on a DVD+R disc, and it didn't work. It boots up, and then says "This Game Disc could not be read. Please read the Wii Operations Manual for more information". The same game works fine on my DVD-R's, but I need it working on this. Why didn't it work?

    Maybe you have crappy media and it has less to do with the fact that it is +R and more that it is some off brand of disc?

    I use Taiyo Yuden +R media burned @ 8x and 16x with no problems.

    That sounds more like a problem with disc or burn quality or a bad rip.

    You don't need to bitset if you have a modchip. Only people who load through soft mods need to bitset.

    when you use a dvd+r medium the booktype is set automaticly to dvd-rom (in nero and img burn, otherwise you app is wrong configured). otherwise use imgburn and set the booktype of your medium manually under the options, but you must have a dvd-burner, which is listed in the options (BenQ, LG, Plextor etc.)

    If you don't succeed, get some DVD-R.

    DVD+R Book type'd = DVD-R

    I have the same burner as mentioned in this thread (HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-H40N RA00) and am getting frustrated. I'm trying to burn a game to use with a twilight hacked console, but imgburn won't let me change the booktype no matter what I do. I tried to select LG from the list, but it keeps coming back with "Invalid command operation code".
