    They use the proprietary Nintendo optical disc. It's a full size 12-cm, 4.7/8.54 GB DVD-based disc.

    You do know that a simple Google search would have gave you this information?

    So some of the lg drives can read those types of discs or all drives can? because when i place my wii sports resort disc in and boot up img burn and choose create image file from disc it says dvd rom disc and the disc is empty and i cant extract the iso. So does that mean my drive isnt compatible or there i some kind of special program? Thanks for the reply.
