    are there any cheap, medium-low quality DVD's that will burn at a slow speed and still work on the wii?

    I'm just planning on burning it at slow speeds overnight.

    I use Imation DVD's they work fine. Oh and using ImgBurn at 4x speed (what I use too) only takes about 30-40 minutes to burn or so.

    Why would you burn overnight? Slow burns can actually be worse off for the wii than a fast burn. You should generally burn at the speed recommended for that specific media, or better yet, check your burns with a certain application to find the best quality burn (different for everyone)

    I use whatever is on special at office depot (usually maxell and memorex). usually burn at 6x. they're pretty cheap if you can find them on special ($20 for 100pk).

    I got 25 pack Verbatim for 19.99CAD after tax at Staples in Vancouver. Are you looking for something cheaper? I have burned few discs at x1, only takes half an hour-ish.

    Which meant they burned at 2x [​IMG]

    The A-One branded discs are excellent quality for the price (UK price is about equivalent of $13 for 50)

    hmm when it comes to DVD to burn for wii games I would never look for save few cents (per unit) and have the risk to have a disc that could not work.

    I use always Verbatim and TDK.
