    Hi, I noticed that a lot of people say that you should burn ISO images for Wii games to DVD-Rs, but I don't have any of them, I only have DVD+Rs, so I was wondering if it's possible to play the games using DVD+Rs, and are there any special things you need to do to make them playable? I'm asking cuz I got a good iso of SMG2 and I burned it to a DVD+R and I put in the wii and load it w/neogamma r8 and it doesn't work (I have cIOS 249 rev 14 and I installed IOS56_64_v5405.wad onto my wii)...so is there anything else I need to do to make it work? (I chose the "Burn an image" option and burned at 4x, and after all the stuff on the wii, it didn't work...)

    DVD+R doesnt have enough space to burn a Wii game

    the size really depends on the game. and the DVD-R works the same way as the DVD+R

    you should use dvd-r's
    dvd+r's do more damage to the wii than dvd-r's.

    Actually, my DVD+R's have 4.7 gig each XD....but also, I'm using Nero to burn them, and people say there's something called "booktype" you need to use...? Anyone can explain? I'm asking cuz I got a good iso of SMG2 and I burned it to a DVD+R and I put in the wii and load it w/neogamma r8 and it doesn't work (I have cIOS 249 rev 14 and I installed IOS56_64_v5405.wad onto my wii)...so is there anything else I need to do to make it work?

    Verbatim (or that other asian brand) DVD+Rs, then booktype to DVD-ROM and it will actually destroy Error 001 - unlike Zurg with Buzz Lightyear (am i offtopic?)

    all dvd's, dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd-rw, are all the same size! and they're all compatible with the wii? damage, pretty sure ive been using all different dvd types for a long time now, and my wii works just fine!


    very straight forward process, heres a small google tutorial.

    no idea what a book type is.....nero? no thanks mate!
    download imgburn, it's incredibly easy to use, just drop the .iso on and it'll sort the setting, then burn it up!

    pretty sure nero has loads of different, confusing settings, like this booktype you speak of? why bother i say!
    img burn all the way!!!

    ImgBurn has booktype thing. DVD+R booktyped to DVD-ROM is actually better then just a DVD-R [​IMG] it defeats the purpose of the 001 error.

    Download imgburn. Install. Burn game with booktype DVD-ROM. Uninstall imgburn.

    Now go.

    Yeah either ask him whether you can download it - just assure him its safe (which it is from the original source and recognised mirrors) or just do it sneakily! Using Nero is setting you up for a world of pain and failed burns.

    Is DVDX necessary to play backups? (I had to download MH3 cause my sister is using my copy and we wanna play together, but I won't hack her new Wii.) I didn't really install it because I didn't think I would need it.

    Cool, I know that one post with the link above said to download it, but I didn't think it was necessary, wanted to make sure first [​IMG]. Thanks again!
