    It can be +RW or -RW

    I wanted to have your feed-back about DVDRW issue. Thanks

    I've tried a dew different +RW discs, all worked OK.

    Nice way to test out custom mods etc.

    I've had issues but a burn has either worked or it hasn't, no inbetween. I'd say its related to the fact the disc is quite old and had seen a bit of use.

    That's what I thought, so I bought a brand new one (not the same brand through), but got the same errors : I had to insert it many times before it boots, like the "old used" ones.

    Never had any problems. Off course after 20 burns it's best to throw it away.

    I allways burn my DVD+RW with IMGBURN on 2.4 speed

    I'm pretty sure the Wii can read DVD-RWs. I know the GC can't.

    Works here too with brandless dvd-rw's, they don't have a brand but work even as flawless as a Verbatim.

    I use Verbatim DVD-RWs. They work just fine. I haven't tried re-writing any of them, however. My college bookstore was selling ten packs for $0.99 apiece, so I grabbed several. (I'm pretty sure the whole thing was a huge mistake, but a huge mistake that worked out well for me.)
