    Does the wii read theses? And do you have to use 8cm DVDs on the wii for backups?

    wiikey only reads +RW , and it reads them just fine... i use 5 RW's all the time , as some games just dont need a permanent copy

    The Wiikey reads +R and -R discs. In my experience DVD+Rs burned at 2.4x on Nero work the best for me. I get alot of errors using -Rs

    Can't remember if I use a +RW or a -RW one, but I can say it works perfectly. I have a Wiikey [​IMG]

    @ lou_weed - I don't know where you got that information but my Wii/WiiKey loves Imation DVD-RW 4X even after multiple erasures and re-writes.

    Look at wiikey.cn , and other comparison charts. it could be fixed though by firmware updates.
    I checked mine a few months ago , and -RW didnt work.

    Just buy a bloody 50-pack of Verbatim -R DVDs (DVD-R) $18!!!! jeeze just to save afew dollars!

    Wii ONLY uses DVDs for Wii BACKUPS ... duh
    Wii uses EITHER DVDs or Mini-DVDs for GC ... easier to use regular dvds ... if ur a penny pincher , put more than 1 cube game per dvd ... easily fit 3 cube games per DVD-R
