    Hi to all I am new in GBAtemp..

    I want to ask these Noob questions of mine...

    First, though this would sound stupid, how would I know if my Wii is PAL or NTSC? Will a PAL game work on an NTSC Wii and vice versa?

    Second, If I use Imgbrn to produce Wii back-ups, will a DVD+R work my Wii? Or do I need to use a DVD-R?

    If you bought an American Wii, its NTSC-U, if you bought it in Europe it's PAL.
    No, games don't work on other region Wiis without Homebrew or hardware like the Freeloader or a modchip.

    You should use DVD-R as some people say DVD+Rs can damage your drive because they're not as similar to the original Nintendo discs as DVD-Rs.

    Hmmm thanks...I thought it was indicated on the box whether it is NTSC or PAL...

    Hmm I thought there was a setting in Imgbrn that allows you to burn back-ups to DVD+R...I read something that you need to configure a setting like DVD-ROM...is this true? I played a little bit with the setting of Imgbrn but it seems I can't find this setting...
