    I'm going to start experimenting on Rock Band 2 customs now (YAY!). Once I finish it, I'll post a guide here (like I did w/ RB1 customs)

    Now, I don't want make the mistake I did last time with RB1 customs and burn 5+ DVD-R's...

    So I want to get some DVD-RW's. I know that DVD-RW's aren't recommended, but does anyone know of some good one's that work on the Wii?

    I'm using Soft-Chip for customs, but I also have Gamma. Not sure if this helps.

    Ummm.....
    As far as i know, no DVD-RW's work, the wii drive can't read any other format except DVD-R (DVD-ROM)

    I believe it has to do with your drive chip, maybe yours is capable, just try the best ones and cross your fingers....!!! [​IMG]

    best to test DVD-RW's with an ISO you know works - and test it more than once - if u get it going - try it in and out 10 times
    if that works - delete and reburn and try again

    Great if you have it working and best of luck , but they are known to be fickle

    If you use DVD-RWs you need really good quality media and a good burner. And then it still depends on your wii drive if you can use them or not. Get good media, update your burner and try it with a game you know that it works.

    DVD-RWs always worked fine for me. Of course hq-ones from Sony or Verbatim.

    I'm using Philips DVD+RW to test an ISO before using a DVD-R.
    I also use them for watching movies.
    I bought a 10 pack about 2 years ago and 3 of the discs are worn-out now (probably after using them about 30 times I guess).

    Okay, thanks everyone! Maybe I'll just stick with DVD-R's, since I have a stack of 30+ with me [​IMG]

    But still, this is good for future reference [​IMG]

    I use Fujifilm DVD+RW if I want to test a game, and it always works - no exception.
