    Yes I tried burning wii games using sony dvd-r using nero. It used to work well But after a few months, a game that I burn has a disk read error so I switch to imation dvd-r which is very good & HP dvd-r which is also good.

    Ummm.....
    don't burn your games using nero, which is probably why they get retarded after a few months, use imgburn as it will correctly burn it on the disc.

    My DVD drive is not compatible to DVD-R, so I have to use DVD+R instead.
    I've been using Sony DVD+R from the very beginning ( nearly 2 years ) and burned with Imgburn, and never got a coaster.
    Never. Each game works as expected, for as long as I want to play it.
    That's why I never change the brand, plus those Sony dvds are nice creamy white colored, a perfect fit for the Wii [​IMG]
    If it only didn't read Sony on the disc itself lol......
    And I have to agree about Nero, don't burn with it, use imgburn.
    Coming from the Dreamcast days and the haunting for the perfect media, when most games had to be burned several times and would even stop to work after a little while, and it felt like a gambling every time I burned a game, I can honestly say I'm really happy with the Wii, everything works right away.

    I recently tried burning 2 games using Sony DVD-R and they didn't work. I normally use Verbatim or RIDATA and have never had problems with these brands. Burning at 4X or 8X.

    What's the problem with Nero, exactly? I've used it for 30+ Memorex DVD-Rs with no issue over a few months and just switched to Sony. So far I have not had a problem, but it sounds like the discs might go bad after a while because I used Nero? I searched and read a few of the threads about testing various burn speed configurations, but this is the first I've really heard that says "don't use Nero".

    I don't have anything against Nero. I only gave an alternative to people that might have problems using it.
    In many years of hacking and burning, I found that Imgburn get the job done nicely and easy, it's very compact, and the fact that I never had a single fail, makes me stick with it.
    Why fix it if it ain't broke ?
    If Nero works well for you, don't change it.

    Ah, cool. That makes perfect sense. I have yet to have an issue with Nero, so I'll probably stick with it for now. So far the switch to Sony from Memorex has not made any difference either, and I have 100 Verbatim discs coming any day now.
