    There are loads of faqs here, you really didnt need a new thread.

    However I'll be kind and answer. You burn them the same way as pc isos, but you NEED to use DVD-r.

    Each game is 4.7gb (apart from very few dual layer games which are 8.5gb)

    Just get single layer discs and the wii works best with -r discs cheap ones should be ok.

    Ooh and dual layer discs are just like having two singles on top of each other but not many games require them they hold 8gigish instead of 4 and can be expencive.

    Metroid Prime Trilogy, Super Smash Bros Brawl and Sakura Wars need dual layer. Anything else, use single layer.

    Theres no difference between +r and -r except that different readers read different formats. Get the verbatim brand, they are the best.

    Yes, but that is a BIG waste of money.

    Dual layer are like 10 times the price of Single Layer DVD-R

    because i accidentally bought 2 DL, and i only bought 1 SL.
    But its fine if i can put a game on it , it just cost 2x the SL
    it was just like 85 cents of wasting my money. [​IMG] [​IMG]
