    O.k. I know that a lot of you frown on disc labels but I'm the type that has to have everything looking professional. I am having a bit of a problem. Most of my disc are using fellowes labels and my newest burns are using labels from avery. My Metroid Prime and Wii music (well when I first burned them) were running perfectly and they have avery labels on them. My older burns like Mario Galaxy and Endless Ocean run smooth and they have fellowes labels on them. Lately, this week to be exact, the loader has been acting funny with my avery labled disc. Wii music which normally runs without a hitch was giving me a DRE during every load last night. MP3 was giving me a DRE right after the controller warning screen but I played a good 30 minutes this morning with hardly any problem. The main ticker is Mario Kart Wii, which I burned this morning. My 2x copy using a avery label automatically gives me a DRE but my 16x with the fellowes label plays almost smooth...unless you leave it hanging for a while, then it's automatic DRE. All of my games are 1:1. Should I toss out my 2X copy of Mario Kart or should I wait for Gamma with hopefully a fix for DRE and just hang on to it (not like the loader doesn't on the disc)? Also I notice that Avery labels are a bit thicker than fellowes. They also come out a bit slower from the drive than my fellowes disc. When I can get pas the DRE all of my disc play as smooth as any original. What fo you people think?

    I think your labels are shit - I don't really think you need advice - you've obviously spotted the correlation between error & label brand.

    You are just hoping people tell you otherwise, so you can fool yourself.

    Get printable discs in future and never have the problem of having to deal with labels again.

    Here's the end all, be all answer.

    Burn your discs at the speed indicated on the disc itself. It the disc say's 2x, then burn at 2x. If the disc says 16x burn at 16x. If the disc say's 2,094,846x, then guess what... you got a fake disc...

    The disc is MADE to be burned that fast, and burning slower isn't good for the disc... if you only have an 8x drive, and 16x discs, then yes, burning at 8x is fine... but if you have an 8x drive, and burn a 16x disc at 2x, yea, something is gonna mess up...

    Labels:

    If you have a FULL DISC LABEL, and really really really want it to look semi real, then go ahead, print the label, and for god's sake, use the little tool that came with the kit to center the label.
    Other than that, just write on the disc with a Sharpie... there are many kinds available... you can even buy a multicolor pack in the super thin style, and make your own disc art!

    NEVER EVER EVER put a square or rectangle sticker on the disc. It will unbalance it, and cause harm to your disc, wii drive, and beat up your dad, and rape your mom, impregnating her with the spawn of satan! do you want your brother to be the anti-christ?? that's what I thought! DON'T DO IT!

    Printable DVD-R's are the way to go. A really great printer for this is the Canon iP4300 (or similar). It has a small tray that the disc goes onto, then it goes into the printer. Acoustica Label Maker is an excellent label making program, simply grab an image from cdcovers.cc or console-covers.com, load into Acoustica, pop a disc in the printer and hit print. In about 30 seconds you'll have a vibrant, full color label on the disc that will never peel or cause damage to your drive. It really looks great when you get some good artwork, so make sure you get the labels from cdcovers.cc or console-covers.com, or you can make your own if you're good at Photoshop, there are some Wii disc templates on torrent sites.

    While you're at it, pick up some printable CD-R's too and make your music collection stand out too. If you took the time to download it, might as well take the time to make it look pretty. [​IMG]

    Printable media FTW! [​IMG]

    There you go again djdynamite... just posting to get your post count up...

    I didn't say any brands were better than another... all I said was BURN AT THE SPEED INDICATED ON THE DISC.

    I could care less what disc your using... if you wanna use "BillyJoe Bob's Dumbfuck Hillbilly" brand discs, and say they are the best, more power to you! If one person thinks TDK is better, yay! I use the brand that's on sale! 100 Sony DVD's for $30... right now, Sony's the best... if TDK's go on sale when I'm out of Sony's, then guess what... TDK will be the best...

    Totally agree with you on using what's accessible. When I'm out of disc i usually pick up a 15 pack from the neighborhood Family Dollar store. Also I want to thank everyone for their comments [​IMG]

    Now run along little boy, you've still not come out of the closet yet have you? That's your mother issue showing again. Did she not breastfeed you or something? Would explain lots.

    wrong.

    the speed indicated by the disc manufacturer simply reflects the maximum speed that the disc can be burned at that will yield a disc with valid data. the actual speed that you should burn the disc at is really dictated by your pc and the software that you're using to burn said disc. if you have something antiquated with a slow processor and a small amount of ram, then burn the disc at the speed that your software recommends.

    additionally, try not to perform other tasks while burning the disc (which can affect the flow of data to the buffer and affect the end result) especially if you have an older pc.

    as for labels, as others have mentioned I would try and avoid them and use printable surface dvd's and cd's. decent printers that print directly onto the discs can be had for well under $100 now a days.
