    I have been using Verbatim DVD-Rs with the Taiyo Yuden dye (burning at 4x using a NEC 3500a) and haven't had a single DRE using these discs yet.

    Some games on cheaper bulk DVD-Rs I tried HAVE given me DREs.

    taiyo yuden is regarded as the best dvd producers in the world
    the quality of the dyes/disk making at the taiyo yuden factory is second to none

    i have burnt hundreds of taiyo yuden disks (admittly not for the wii as the current chips dont interest me) and have yet to produce a bad burn

    No, you're fine. [​IMG]

    The TY are getting much harder to find these days (in stores). All Sony (and I believe Fuji also) DVD+R 8x that is made in Japan is TY. Really though, any quality media like Verbatim should produce very "respectable" burns on any decent burner.

    EDIT: I don't think these new modchips have probs with +R, but I'm not 100% sure. Should be fine though.

    Stivo, I also use TDK DVD-Rs for all my Wii games, no DREs so far.. I use FujiFilm DVD-Rs for GC games... not a single DRE there either... I tried burning a Wii game on a Fujifilm but I DREs.
