    i want to know if the wii is able to use dual layer dvds.reason for me asking is because before i used the twilight hacked i sent my wii to nintendo to fix the smash bros problem.i know the gamma launcher doesn't support dual layer but on softmii you load the game from the disc channel and i was wondering if dualer dvds work.if they do i could put about 8 gamecube games in one dvd if the gamecube launcher works like that or 2 wii games on one dvd if possible.

    even if it was possible why bother? a dual layer dvd isn't even twice as big as a single layer yet they cost over ten times more.

    I don't think Dual Layer is supported
    If it was you would be able to put more than 8 GC games on it
    (and more than 2 wii games), if you shrink them
    I can easily fit 6 games on single layer

    Dual Layer DVD's are supported but they shouldn't be used on Wii games. There is only one Wii game out there, Super Smash Borthers Brawl, that needs a Dual Layer DVD.
