    HELP!!!
    I have these DVD+RW mini disc from memorex and well, every time I burn a ISO to them from my Mac the Wii wont pick up on them. I know that the disc work because I have my copies of "WWE Day of Reckoning 2" and "Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess" burned on the same type of disc (they came from the same package). I heard of booktyping DVD+R type disc. if that is the case, how would I go about doing that on my Mac?

    Wait, you have +RW? The Wii can't read rewritable disks.

    he could be referring to a logo on the disc. many disc are not re-writable but have a RW logo on the disc itself. I know my sony DVD's do. [​IMG]

    All +R, +RW and +R DL discs do. It's the logo of the DVD+RW Alliance, which developed the +R, +RW and +R DL standards. The DVD Forum (the normal DVD logo people) didn't approve of the +R standards and stuck with their own -R standards. That's why -R discs have the DVD logo and +R discs have the RW logo.

    DUDES!!!! I have DVD+RW mini disc.

    1) YES they work in the Wii like I said earlier that my GameCube backups of "Day of Reckoning 2" and "Twilight Princess", burned on these SAME type of disc work on my Wii.

    2) The issue is, those games were burned on a Windows based PC with Nero and Nero, automatically booktypes "DVD+" type disc.

    3) I CANT afford to buy any more disc and why would I buy more disc when I have 6 DVD+RW minis that work perfectly well???

    4) ALL I NEED TO KNOW is how to burn my Gamecube backups on my Mac with a "DVD+" type disc.

    5)Nuff said...

    If DVD-Rs are that expensive, use your original discs, not the backups.

    *sigh* Some of you guys are dense. Couple of You guys failed to realize that he's using a Mac and he's gotten the same types of discs to work on other games....


    Anyways, "obtain" a copy of Roxio Toast. It's the equivalent to Nero for Mac's. I'm not 100% sure if it supports the setting of booktypes

    If it's a pc, install a multi boot system with WinXP, for all stuff not working on MAC OS natively. Without the bitsetting the discs are not supposed to work.
