    Just use the + ones then. They will work fine on Wii too. I'm using +R discs for all my games.

    But to answer your question, try updating your burner's firmware

    imgburn is free, so why not try it?
    but in nero, look for something like burn/write image/iso

    can i just use imgburn instead of nero8?
    with the DVD +R?
    or does that only read DVD-R?

    You can use ImgBurn for all drives and all discs. Thing is though, if you plan on using DVD+R:s, you have to set book type to DVD-ROM for the DVD+Rs. ImgBurn tries to do this by default if you have a firmware on your drive that supports it; if not, you need to google up a modified firmware which allows for bitsetting, and reflash your drive with that. A good place to start for this is http://forum.rpc1.org/portal.php

    Imgburn will burn dvd+r's, you may have to manually set the book type though.

    EDIT: Yar, beat me to it.
