    Well I read a post that said the wii disk drive isnt meant for DVD+R's and I was wondering if this is true
    He said that it slowly deteriorates the drive.
    So I was just wondering which I should use for GC Backups.

    Thanks

    I'd say cheap dvd media would put more strain on the Wii's laser more then + or - dvds.

    Gambia, The
    You only need to bitset your DVD+R to DVD-R and they are fine.
