    So I burned SSBB on a DVD+R DL and it does work fine, however I have noticed it seems a little.. slow. I know some people will suggest that I just play it on some other media, but the game is 8GB and that's half of the only flash storage I have available to me right now. I've only tested it on a softmodded wii with neogamma, but my Wii which I just replaced the laser on and is about to get a modchip will it have better results? And is it harmful to play this kind of media on a Wii? I know some of the earlier Wii's had a tough time playing Brawl, and the ones that did got worn down really fast. I did use Verbatim DVD's so it should be good quality (I'm hoping). I know I'm asking a lot but like I mentioned I just replaced my Wii's laser and I'd hate to do it again.

    Loading from DVD is a lot slower than loading from USB, always has been, probably always will be.
    With only softmod the DVD is reading at half-speed (3x) as well.

    All burned media wears the laser more than original discs. DVD+ discs especially.

    If you dont want to replace the laser every now and then Id say suck it up and get an HDD. You wont regret it.

    Does it make a difference if you change the book type?

    No it doesn't. Just buy a USB hard drive, you can get sub 500GB ones for less than $50. Graphically intense games played off DVD+/-R will always lag with a softmod.
