    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.

    I use HP discs and Playo discs and a few others that I'm too lazy to get off this chair to look at. I haven't had problems with any of my discs so far, only my DVD burner.

    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...
