    Hi GBATemp,

    I have a question: How can I burn DL DVD's? I need it to play Xenoblade on my Wii. Can someone explain it to me?

    Usually I just load up imgburn which can be downloaded for free, open the ISO and burn it at the speed that the media can handle or maximum of the burner. My burner only writes at 2.4x so I use that.

    You'd save a lot of DL and such if you softmod and load your games from hard drive through cfgusbloader though. A disc never makes it into my Wii's drive any more. I got sick of all the bad burns and slow read speed of games as well as games needing exponential amounts of cracks due to being run from the optical drive. You don't have to worry about any of this nonsense if you play your games from USB hard drive.

    As amptor said, use ImgBurn, but don´t forget to set the layer break:

    In ImgBurn under Tools->Settings->Write-> in the upper right under Layer Break choose "user specified" and enter 2084960

    And yeah, get yourself a HDD. It´s so much more convenient. My Wii has 1TB [​IMG]

    Burning a DL DVD is no different from burning a normal DVD, except the layerbreak option Guy.brush mentioned.

    But yea, HDD ftw [​IMG]. Who can be arsed to get up and switch disc whenever you want to play something else? lol [​IMG]

    oh yea if you are burning something special like an xbox360 or ps2 backup you have to make sure to set the appropriate layerbreak otherwise the game won't work. for pc and movies I think this part probably doesn't matter.

    If I didn't do the layer break thing what will happen? I started playing already and it worked fine so far.

    It will probably fail to continue reading once you reach the part where it switches layer. Im not sure tbh, I havnt used discs in like 5 years lol (at all).
