    I voted no. "Some" of the games my bro burned on a +r worked to an extend, but I'd constantly get DRE's. And the majority just didn't work. So I voted no, they don't work for me.

    Only the Verbatim DVD-R discs worked pretty good. I don't have a mod-chip though. And by now, I use the USBloader, which works much better than the backup loaders.

    What the ?

    If you want to get to know if there are any Wiis that can't read dvd+r that are correctly booktyped to dvd-rom as they have to be in order to work, then write that into the topic!

    I have a launch day Wii, and only DVD-R discs work. DVD+R discs don't work even with the booktype set to DVD-ROM.

    My computer or my nero can't change booktype! I got a very cheap computer with a low procesor.

    Then stop complaining, it's known sice the backup loader was leaked(!) that dvd+rs ONLY work if the booktype was set.

    Sorry, but such a topic without explanation, without mentioning the booktyping looks like complaining to me.
