Hmm, well officially verified by the Disk Writer Game case are SMB, SMB2, Volleyball, Baseball, Golf, Soccer, Metroid, Nazo no Murasamejou, and Zelda. 
Besides that I would have to base it on the foldout manuals and disk labels I've seen since they came with the game if it was written by the Disk Writer.  Off the top of my head I can remember seeing Vs. Excitebike, Zelda 2, SD Gundam World Scramble Wars, SD Gundam World Scramble Wars Map Collection, Exciting Soccer, Ice Hockey, Famicom Tantei Kurabu Parts 1 + 2 and disks 1 + 2, Pachinko GP, Konamic Tennis, Bubble Bobble, Akumajou Dracula, Mah Jong, Sylviana, Pro Wres, Goonies, Wrecking Crew, Pac-Man...
That's all I can think of right now. Of course this is not a verified list, but based on the randomness of the games, I wouldn't be suprised if every game by a major publisher was available on the Disk Writer at some store at some time. 
Actually, now that I think about it too, only having 9 games available for writing at a given time is a pretty small selection.  I wonder how often they updated the games at the stores.

There's a book that lists all of the Disk Writer releases, so I'm told. One day I'll get a copy and have manuel translate a release list.

I've searched Disk Writer on YHJ and had it pop up a couple of times. I don't know its name. It's got a cute Disk-kun holding a 100yen coin on the front or back.

So when you bought a Disk Writer download you also got a copy of the cover and a manual? If that's right then how can I tell the difference by looking at them. I want to be sure that if I'm paying full price for something CIB on eBay, that it's a factory copy and not a download. I have no problem with a Disk Writer game, I just want to make sure I know what I am paying for.

EDIT - Righto, thanks for the info!

When you wrote a game from a Disk Writer, you could mail in (stores might have had some, as well) for disk labels and a foldout manual. You wouldn't get anything else; no bound manual, no cover art, no cover. And, just FYI, you didn't really "download" -- I guess you could call a pirate a download, since they can be written from PCs. With a Disk Writer, you'd write a game from an NES cart to a blank disk using a Nintendo machine.

All Night Nippon has never been confirmed as a Disk Writer release.

In Family Computer 1983-1994 (the book that the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum put out), I'm pretty sure pages 152 and 153 (the ones that have a picture of the writable disk and the disk writer kiosk) are listing the official Disk Writer games.

With a Disk Writer, you'd write a game from an NES cart to a blank disk using a Nintendo machine.

were they really NES carts? I have seen pics of the Disk Writer and often wondered what the carts were? Were the carts in the DW actual NES carts and/or games that could be played in an actual system?

Those carts must be rare. I don't suppose the DW could use any cart?
