Create a CAT-R Disc

You must use CAT-R discs that have Wii U and Nintendo trademarks.

To create a disc from a mastered .wumad or .wum image

  1. Navigate to the location where you extracted the Wii U R-Disc Writing Tool package, and then double-click wuwriter.exe in the WiiU-DiscWritingTool-YYYYMMDD/bin directory.
  2. To open the tray on the CAT-R Writer, click Eject.
  3. Insert a blank CAT-R disc in the tray, and then click Load to close the tray.
  4. Click Open.
  5. Select the .wumad or .wum image that you want to use, and then click Open.
  6. To select the CAT-R Writer, click the icon in the box that corresponds to the drive that you want to use. The box turns blue to indicate that it is selected.
  7. Click Write.
  8. Click OK in the dialog box, and then wait for the writing process to complete.
  9. Click Eject, remove the disc from the writer, and then click Load to close the tray.
