i dont think it will affect the reading of the disk, but i first think of another problem that can occur...
after plating for an hour or so, take out the disk and feel it... it will be pretty hot. Most disk labels have a kind of glue that will come off with high temperatures (thats why you should never put a labeled disk in a car stereo), and because of the brushed on the disk slit, the label can come off and get stuck inside your Wii. I woudnt try it.

Just use a Sharpie to write on the disk. That's what I do with PC stuff. Never had a problem.

Printable discs are your friend. Get a printer that will handle DVD's and you can inkjet print straight onto them.

That's what I do anyway, looks quite professional.

Urrrm, not that much really.

I can replace a full set of carts in my printer for £30, that will print a LOT of discs.

That's in an Epson R200. Excellent printer.

Overall, the consensus is that sticky labels are not the most desired of things. Primary because you can unbalance the disc.

For the cheap: Marker is the way to go.

For the fancy: If you happen to have a lightscribe DVD burner (My brother got one for $30 from Newegg) then Lightscribe discs might be an alterative way.

For the professional: If you happen to have an awesome printer like Freeway does, then snag yourself printable discs.

Really, it depends on what equipment you happen to have around. If I had a badarse printer, I'd use printable discs, but I have no desire to spend $250 on a printer just so my discs look awesome. (I don't have a printer. I do most of my printing at work/school)

I have a few burned lightscribe discs, and my Wii has noticeably more difficulty reading those than normal DVD's. Stuttering video and the like. So I don't recommend doing that. Ofcourse if you already have a lightscribe burner you can always try, if you buy smart those discs aren't much more expensive then regular discs

    What's the point of "confirming" games you know will get released. Like Nintendo "confirming" a Zelda sequel. "We can't be sure Nintendo is working on a new Zelda game, or if a new Zelda game will ever be released, until they officially confirm it."

    "There is literally no way to know if they will ever release a new Zelda game, it's wild speculation until they officially confirm it."
