    Can the wii read normal CD's instead of DVD's because all i have are dual layered and i dont want to waste those. i want to back up GC games on that disc. i already have the multiboot program. i just need to burn the ISO.

    No, the wii can't read CD's.
    But you can use the full size of the dual layered DVD. That means at least 6 games will fit, even more if you shrink them.

    You can use mini dvd.. If you want to be like GC mini dvd I like. Some people put them as multi isos on one dvdr or dvd dual layer. I dont like it. I like each copies mini dvd just like gc mini dvd games. [​IMG]

    I TOTALLY agree with you. Granted these days Mini DVD disc are getting EXPENSIVE. I'm talking like 19.99 for a 14 pack at WalMart. [​IMG] Really now? For all of that I might as well start buying official GameCube games from the used section of GameStop. [​IMG]

    Then use Normal DVDs, they work fine in the Wii.

    Get GCOS then you can shrink the games and have like 4 of them on 1 DVD.

    If you don't burn a DVD, what else is it good for besides a shiny coaster (which could also be considered wasting it)?
