    I just recently got my modchip and an iso...problem is, the iso is 5 gigs...So, does anyone know what kind of blank CD I should get? and when I do get it, do I just burn it in and I can start playing?
    Thanks alot!

    Repeat after me: I need to buy DVD-Rs or DVD+Rs.
    And if your ISO is 5 gigs, you are doing it wrong.

    CDs are 700MB, DVDs are 4.7GB.

    Get some DVDs.

    There isn't currently a working method to read CD on Wii.

    You'll need to use DVD-R or DVD+R (or the DL variant for SSBB). Don't bother with RW.

    No chip will read a CD. So get some DVD-R's and maybe some DVD-RW's for the updates and whetever else. If you've got a WiiKey, then make sure that you don't get DVD+x's because they tend not to work.

    I see...I see...a topic..."My Wii don't read DVD-RW disks, HALP!" in near future
    Not all Wiis can.

    Well i've only had experience with my Wii, which can read -RW discs. I thought that a Wii that can read Brawl can read a -/+RW disc?

    Yes, these "newer" Wiis can read DLs, RWs.

    CD's are 700Megabytes, DVD's are 4.7Gigabytes.

    Without physical modification, a Wii cannot read a CD.

    Ah...I see..thank you for the clarifications [​IMG]
    I thought a CD and DVD was the same thing ^^
    My apologies and thanks for all the helpful comments.
