    It partly depends on what chip you have, but for the most part, any decent media will do. DVD-R is currently more compatible overall.

    What is more important then what media you use, is what burner you have. It doesn't matter if you have good media, if your burner is crap.

    I'm not 100% sure it's a media problem, but I would not buy Maxell DVD+R again.

    Strange. The guy that installed my Wiikey gave me Wario Ware Smooth Moves on an Office Depot dvd-r and it works great. He used a Pioneer 111D.

    I have the same drive, with the modded firmware. Using Taiyo Yuden media (8x DVD+Rs) burnt at 8x and 12x, my Call of Duty 3 game keeps skipping (it skips less at 12x) at the introduction video. I'm frankly quite puzzled that generic dvd-rs from Office Depot would work better than TYs which are supposed to be the most reliable brand.

    I'm going to try a spindle of 16x Verbatim -Rs. Hope they work better for me.

    Edit: Verbatim -Rs are working perfectly. Now I wish I knew why the TY +Rs aren't working right.

    RitekG04 worked on 5 out of 5 burns at 4x so far. Haven't tried 8x yet
