    I want to burn some single layer games that are bigger than 4.7 gb to discs. I cannot find any discs that can fit them that are not dual layer. Any help?

    This isn't a topic about backup loaders, you should have posted in ask GBAtemp.

    Short answer is you can't. If your ISO is just shy of 5 gigs and for a game that is not supposed to be dual layered try burning it to a normal blank disc in IMG burn anyway.

    I do not think they anything larger then 4.7 GB dvd-r; then again they did at some point make either 750 or 800 MiB cd's you could burn with. I remember them back when I was in middle school I was so pissed they stopped making them.

    There are no single layer games greater than 4.7gb, so whatever you're trying to do is probably wrong.

    I dont care what he's trying and neither should you, fact is, single layer DVD-r can only hold upto 4.7 GB of data on it so there is simply no room for anything larger

    if the burner supports it then he can probably overburn until the laser goes off the edge of the disc.
    i wouldnt recommend it though.

    ...Does such a thing exist? Also, you will need either regular DVDs or Dual Layer, a Wii will not read DVDs that don't fall under one of those criteria.
