    Okay i ran out of dvd-r discs and only have dvd+. I heard dvd+ are bad for the wii because they use up the laser more? Is this true?

    No. They are less likely to work, but if they do they will work exactly like -rs.

    Do people even use DVD +R ? I burn all movies and other things with DVD -R never even purchased a stack of DVD +R 's or know what purpose they served in the first place.

    I hope your stack of +'s work. Good luck

    im fairly sure +s dont 'use up the laser more', although id hate to run out of laser!
    heres an article describing the technical differences between the two http://www.cdfreaks.com/article/203-Why-DV...rior-to-DVD-RW/
    in my own experience i use mostly +s but have used -s before without issue, for data and wii backups
    basically as long as you buy good media (verbatim) and have a decent somewhat recent burner (handles both + and -), it shouldnt make the slightest difference

    wow, too much test too read lol.
    i used to use -s because they are the only ones i had. there were lots of problems such as failed at burning... wasted lots of dvds for 1 game. they were datawrites btw. so i decided to use usb loaders. saves time.
