    ok first of all i just bought a pack of memorex dvd+r - i know people say USE GOOD MEDIA, is this considered good? OR must i get verb or sony etc?

    Also, as far as my wires go, I have a old cable from my Xectuer 2.6 for my xbox1. Its the cable to run from the chip to the switch, will these wires be ok? Anyone know?

    I'd be sure to bitset it to a DVD-ROM and to burn at a low speed. There are too many factors predict, mainly with your burner and computer, but also with the Wii.

    If a problem occurs, it can be hard figuring out where it occurs.

    I'm getting into the habit of buying a new dvd burner every 3-6 months for 20-40 bucks.

    I've been using Memorex DVD-R for my Wii since the Wiinja.

    The weird thing is I also have some crappy knockoff DVD-Rs I got from americal.com that I haven't used in forever, and they just SUCK with my xbox and ps2, but they've been producing fewer read errors in the Wii than the memorex discs :wtf:

    Particularly in the case of Metal Slug Anthology. I had a hell of a time trying to get that game to run without locking up.
