    yes, they do.

    I only use DVD+Rs, and I have yet to have a backup not work for me (I always backup NTSC discs and run WiiBrickBlcoker first, just in case)

    Just make sure the booktype is DVD-ROM. I use Nero 8, and it has the ability to do this.

    I always use DVD+R and they have all worked great.

    I dont even have to set the booktype on them to DVD-ROM and they still work fine

    I guess its just up to how your Wii wants to take them
