    DVD error code 1053

    Hi all, need some help please! I have recently purchased a new black limited edition wii, version 4.1e. I followed this guide to the letter, installed everything without any incident. However when I tried 3 games (all burned using nero onto DVD-R Verbatim DVD's from downloaded ISO file) all 3 failed to launch with neogamma. All 3 produced the error: DVD error code (1053). Now I thought it was the way I burnt the games, so I took them to my friends older wii and all 3 loaded and played perfectly with neogamma. With further investigation it seems I have a chipset GC2-D3-2 (v2) using this checker Wii Drive Chip Database . Now I believe this chip won't allow home burnt games to be loaded via DVD ?
    What is my next move? a usb loader and external hard drive install? if so do I need to remove my exsiting installation first, or is it simply a case of installing a few additonal files etc ?

    Any help would be most certainly appreciated guys

    D3-2 won't play backups.

    No need to remove anything, just download the usb loader you desire and launch through HBC or wad.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    No need to re-install everything. Just get a usbloader like usbloaderGX or you could even use neogamma7 in my signature. Just look over the loading from usb link in my sig to start off, and also there's a compatibility list link on there for your hard drive.
