    ok so i recently bought a new dvd drive for my pc because my old one only supportes +r but im having some problems with it...every time i burn a game i get the 324 error on gamma with rev7. ive tried all sorts of media alas to no avail. so i think its the drive its a lite on and i got it ar my schools computer show. i have a feeling i have to set somthing in imgburn but dont know what.

    p.s i wrote this on the wii without a keyboard because my comp is off and its late where i am so plz respond!!!

    yes, dvd-r should work. if you take a look at all the threads saying "x game does not work", 99% of the people are using dvd+r. do some searching next time.

    DVD - (minus) R shouldn't need any booksetting, only + (plus) R.

    Looks like it's the thing you changed then which would be the dvd drive and/or media.
