    Does the wii support DVD+R?
    More specifically TDK DVD+R 1-16x 4.7gb Data/Video?

    Yes the Wii supports DVD+R as long as you set the booktype to DVD-ROM.

    I can confirm I have watched movies burned on DVD+R on my Wii. Both divx and full DVD movies.

    fair warning, not all drives support changing the booktype to DVD-R. I know that first hand, lol, mine doesn't.

    Not a problem. I've noticed you try to help most people on this site, so I figured if you need some help, I'll help you.

    If you can't find the option, just ask.

    k, go into the LG tab.

    in the "change for" box, pick "Drive (for DVD+R)"

    then for "new setting" pick "DVD-ROM" then pick change.

    If it works, you may or may not need to change this every time you start IMGburn.

    LOL.


    anyway, you may want to redo the booktype again before burning, it may have reset.

    God must be shining onto me today.
    A new shirt.
    A milkshake.
    My mum found some classic rock badges and gave them to me.
    and now this.

    what a sec...I thought that if the wii reads dvd+r it weakens the lens...but if you set it to dvd-rom or sumthing this fixes the problem?
