    Hey guys. I have my WiiKey and am waiting for my installer to get back with me so HOPEFULLY I can get the freakin think installed today.

    Anyhow, I surveyed my media and below are the results. I will primarily be burning games to the Lightscribe media, but I included the others just incase I end up using them.

    I am a little dismayed to see that the lightscribe that I have been using are CMC magnetics. I remember them being the worst back in the day, but at least I only have ten of those.

    The list:

    Can you burn GameCube backups to regular sized DVDs? I haven't seen anything regarding this question yet.

    Yes you can. Just burn it as you would any iso. In fact, you can burn MORE than one GC game to a single DVD using GCOS.

    Awesome, I was able to do that with xbox games and I was hoping I could do the same with GC games.

    That's odd. Because the -R are the exact same code as reported as working fine in this thread.

    Can you get other media to work? What speed are you burning at?

    I am burning everything at 4x.

    I wasted around 20 blank dvd's last night trying different speeds and switching between 3x and 6x mode in wiikey. Maybe I shouldn't have tried copying disc from disc, lol. Anyhow, now everything is smooth sailing.

    New results for me(simplified)

    TDK DVD-R 16x (burned @ 16x)

    It's possible that the drive in the Wii will only read single-layer discs but nobody seems to know for sure yet.

    How do you burn gamecube isos. Ive made so many coasters. I am using both maxell 16x and verbatim 16x they both work fine for wii games but when i burn a gcn it doesnt. Is there a special method or do i jus burn the gcn on to the disk as data?

    Does Verbatim DVD + R work? I see DVD-R there, but no + R... IF not, I bought myself 100 +R's that will go to movies 'stead of Wii games :/

    Without a media code the brand is only partially helpful but I'm using 16x verbatim +r's from a 100 pack and they're working great.
