    How many (backup) game titles are released in the DVD-R DL format? I have heard that most modchips don't support DVD-R DL discs!

    Only Brawl I think. Mario Kart Wii was rumoured to be one but it turned out that it wasn't.

    Seems you are asking two questins at once:
    How many games are released as dvd-r:
    I think the answer would be none. "Backup" games are released in .iso format. What media you burn that iso to is your decision.
    How many games are DL:
    one ,IIRC, and its SSBB

    Only SSBB is dual layer yet.

    If you mean legit releases on DVD-R DL, none. Nintendo doesn't allow such things. "DVD" isn't the actual name of their Wii disc format for that matter, instead they're an unlicensed clone of DVD.

    You can decide for yourself on what media you want to burn it.

    Make sure you burn Brawl on a dual layer though.

    I think the DVD-R DL are very expensive! Esspecialy when you take brands like PHILPS, Verbatim (Mitsubishi) it costs more then £ 1.50 or € 2.60 [​IMG]

    I hope Nintendo will release only DVD-R single sided games [​IMG]

    Aw, c'mon dude. Don't go complaining about it being expensive. If it's too expensive for ya, buy the original game. (€44?). Good thing you didn't get an Xbox 360...

    And by the way, Nintendo releases Wii Optical Discs (you could call them modified dvds). Someone dumps this disc to an ISO. You download the ISO and burn it to a DVD (+R or -R).

    I know this is going to be a noob question.

    I know that you have to have a certain LG Optical Drive in order to read Wii and Gamecube discs.

    But what about burning them? Can I use my Sony Nec Drive to burn Wii games to DVD+R and play them on a modded Wii?

    Also, what is the recommended media type? I know it is Taiyo Yuden DVD+R for the PS2 and Ritek G04 for the Gamecube.

    Thanks in advance

    Most burners will do the trick, recommended media are Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden.

    I don't think so dude! You can't burn DVD+R or DVD+R DL, because the 'DVD player' inside the Wii is a DVD-R player not a DVD+R player. So I think if you want to kill the laser beam in the Wii, you can indeed burn DVD+R or DVD+R DL [​IMG]

    The best DVD burner out there is the Poineer DVR 115-D with firmware 1.18!

    Playing NTSC SSBB from verbatim 2.4x DVD+R DL since it was dumped. No problems. Wii still reads other disks fine. If you think you can "kill the laser beam in the Wii" by using a DVD+R then you need to do some more research about optical media and devices.
