    I am burning with a SONY DVD RW DW-U12A on SONY DVD+R (burning Pikmin)
    when I check with DVDInfoPro the Pi and PIO are absurd high I tried on a other computer and got exactly the same amouunt of PI and PIO (around the 99xxxxxxxx PI and 24xxxx PIO) and also tried a burning a other file (Pikmin 2) same result.

    The only differences are in the graphs but they are really small

    The files are not the problem I checked them on a GCemulator and work fine

    Media as well as burn speed can affect the graphs...

    Are you getting disc read errors? Is the game playable?

    I have yet to test if the games are playable on the Wii
    and I burn at 16x speed.

    Also checked Pikmin 1 it is bad media. So I tried with a different source still the same result with the scan.

    Burn at a MUCH slower speed than 16x. try 4x or 2x...
    Use DVD-R media and NOT DVD+R media. Buy Verbatim DVD-R, they seem to have a lot of praise from many many people regarding playability on the wii...

    It is different for everyone, all the tutorials also state this. It is recommended to burn at the speed on the disc, but it is also recommended to try several burns and test them, because all hardware and media are different.

    Then the golden question remains; Your computer says the burn is good, but who says its good for the wii's laser? They are compeltely different, what is good for one thing isn't always good for another...

    I have not heard a LOT of reports of wii's laser dying, and I have played and tested about 500+ discs on my wii with not one problem, so I wouldn't stress over it too much unless your get DRE's...

    Why haven't you tried DVD-R, i find it at least 10x more reliable on the wii than DVD+R, but that's just me...

    I Use TDK DVD-R and always burn at 4x and everything I do works fine, but like said before the Wii much prefers DVD-R and not +R.

    Be careful when buying Verbatim because sumtimes you get the crap ones which i wasted money on and none worked at all on Wii and made terrible film back-ups

    I don't even worry about DvdInfoPro anymore, I used it for the first couple discs I burned but after that I don't really care, all my games work fine except for a few of them.
