Which Verbatim DVD-R is read best by a Wii with a D2CKey?. I have 16x silvertops already but they lag a lot more than my old TY did. Can anyone off some advice? I'm using a Sony Burner DRU-840A.

I don't think there's any difference with the burnable part of the discs between silvertop/injket printable/LightScribe - it's more dependant on the manufacturer and batch (Mitsubishi outsources their media production to other companies, but they all use Mitsubishi dyes.)

It shouldn't make enough of a difference to be noticeable anyway - maybe you need to investigate your burn quality rather than your disc quality?

Burning is pretty much everything, since DVDs are mostly all the same. Some are just better quality when it comes to burning. If you have a few DVDs to waste, try out different settings and burn the same game a few time. Find out which is the fastest.

just came into my head u said they lag, what speed are you burning at? try burning slower (ie 4x dont go under 4x its not needed) to see how it goes, silvertops i havent heard of are they just unbranded discs? probably very cheap dye in them and not very good discs...

    oh dear. making codes for nes is kinda stressful. i'm trying to think of cool ideas that haven't been thought of before. it's hard to be original, and i don't wanna make codes that already exist!
  • GameGenieLabs @ GameGenieLabs:
    I may make a post asking for code ideas, and hopefully that would make others happy :)

    Anywho, I've been using my modded Wii to play a few games here and there, and finally installed a custom Wii theme thanks to Larsenv helping me in a call (I have a family edition, and I don't wanna brick the nand since I can't restore it) Went with the basic "Black" Theme, since I'm a huge fan of dark themes, and it's less of an eyesore at night

    Larsen also helped me with my Dazzle setup, since the drivers for my model weren't online. I also helped dump that DVD with it, since I had a DVD drive.

    @Veho, I love to have some of my favourite consoles physically.

    for the switch
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    does anyone know where to buy replacement usb c cables or you use any usb c cable
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I like to have stuff, but consoles are just too bulky and I wouldn't risk breaking them by actually turning them on, so they'd end up in storage somewhere anyway.
