    Help with a 4.2 Wii

    Hello Everyone..

    I tried to softmod a 4.2e Wii...
    I used the 4.2 tutorial on this board..
    Everything works well and I have installed Neogamma 7 and cios rev 14 but when I want to play a game it says; read error 1101..
    I tried the games in other Wii's and they all worked in those ones..
    So I dont think it really is a problem with the disc itself (I use Verbatim and Maxell DVD-R by the way).

    Is there anyone that could help me?

    From the error index thread:

    1048 & 1101:
    DVD Read Error Bad burn/media or incorrect cios/neogamma version. If you are laready using Verbatim DVD-r burned at 4x, try switching to neogammar6 and cios36rev10. Also this error will persist on newer wiis, meaning that they have the new D2-3 chip which cannot read backups at all. Only option for them is USB loading.

    Looks like the 4.2 wii has the new d3-2 chip which completely blocks out burnt game playing

    Is there already a way to block that ?
    Or can I forget it for the rest of my life..

    Assuming you do have a D3-2 chip in your wii, dvd backup loading will not work at all through the wii disc drive, getting a workking USB HDD is an option if you want to play backups

    As Devillist says USB loading is only way to go. Plus it is far much better anyway.
    Unless you want to wait until someone finds a new hack for the new drive.
