    I have a PAL wii with a wiikey installed.

    i havent yet ran the configuration disk for the wiikey which might be causing the problem but...

    i am using datawrite red 16x 4.7gb general purpose dvd+r disks and i keep on getting errors on my wii saying the disk cant be read, unable to read disk.

    i burnt it at 4x and i played the game for about 5 minutes and it stopped with an error after that and ive also tried to burn it on 2.4x and it still comes with an error.

    ive tried a few games with 16x and they dont work too.

    is this the problem with dvd+r disks as ive burnt about 30 successful games for the wii (exageration) on dvd-r's

    ive just bought 50 dvd+r's too [​IMG]

    whats the problem?

    regards

    some people say dvd+r's are at fault, however most of my games are on dvd+r and I've had no issues.

    With good media of course. Verbatim (TY & MCC) works great, Memorex (PRODISC & CMC) rarely works well.

    YMMV.

    Stick to DVD-R. I've never had problems with my datawrite optima blue.

    DVD+R might be the problem but I saw another horrible thing : datawrite. Do NOT use those DVD as their quality is really BAD ! [​IMG]

    I guess I'm lucky since my Wii's DVD drive likes +R media fine...

    To get my +R games to work, I had to change the wiikey read speed to 3X instead of the default 6X. So try that.

    I've got a whole stack of games (Wii and GC) burnt on Memorex and never had one DRE or coaster.

    It will make loading times longer but it will lower drive noise.
