    Hi guys, just put a Wii clip with d2cpro chip, I am using memorex dvd+r DL and BenQ DVD+R to back up my games, all of them coming up with errors where the Wii cannot read them. The original work fine. Could some one please tell where is a good place to by them and what brand name I should stick to. There is a local Futureshop and Bestbuy close to me.

    Thanks

    Well does the LED's on the D2CPro flash when inserting a game?
    If theres not even a red light then its not installed correctly.

    Hi, what do you mean by DVD9? Unfortunately I cannot back up my original games yet(I have a LG drive on order). I downloaded SMMB off the net. Used Nero to back up the iso on the memorex DVD+RDL. This is the only back up I have. The other ones are taking for ever to download. Is there another small iso that I can download just to see if the wii clip works.

    thanks

    I always use Verbatim DVD-Rs burned at 4x. They work perfectly, never a disc read error, except when I burned a game at 16x.

    i always used maxell with my launch drive (before it died) because i found them to be a good balance between quality and price.

    haven't been able to test anything for the past month because i've been waiting for a modchip to come in..but i expect maxell to continue to work flawlessly

    Same D2Pro chip installed (professionally installed 19 wires). I use Memorex DVD+R or Verbatim DVD+R with no issue at all (burnt from my MacBook [OS X 10.5.3] using the built-in image burn software at max speed)... but haven't had any luck with DL's (Verbatim or FujiFilm tested so far), having to use DVD5 rip of SSBB.
