    My local store only have Verbatim DVD-R DL disks, and no DVD+R.

    My question is, will a DVD-R still work? Looking through that topic it seems everybody has DVD+R's...

    Hey Mistle, its me Alfangus (assuming your the same Mistle from the IGN boards)

    Anyway according to the Guide, you can use DVD-R DL, and I don't see any reason why couldn't (people have said stuff about custom set layerbreaks, but given the straightfoward way you burn SSBB I don't think this is an issue.)

    I used DVD+Rs, TDK ones which I found at my local Dick Smith (ironically because they only had -R verbatims, and I wasn't sure). They worked fine.

    Ah, hey Alfangus, same Mistle here [​IMG]

    That's great to hear, because I have finished downloading and I really wanna play some SSE. I'm gonna start the burn now.

    Hopefully it works....

    I used verbatim DVD-R DL too. In my case, the game doesn't boot by itself (error #001) but when I start the game with the dvd5 and swap the disk with the dvd9 in the main menu, it works perfectly.

    Ah well, I can handle doing that.

    Does it work on 60Hz or 480p? Thanks [​IMG]

    Has anyone tried Philips-branded/Ricoh-manufactured DVD+R DL?

    I can't even burn the ISO and now I'm wondering if it's just really crappy discs or a corrupt file. How would I find out, if it's the latter?
