Thread: DVD Read Error 1053

    DVD Read Error 1053

    Hey. I am a massive noob at the wii and all I want to do is play backup games on the wii. I have 50 dvd-r s which are Memorex. I dumped Mario Party 8 with Iso Dumper and it was single layered. Then I burned the iso file to a dvd-r and I put it in the wii and I used Neogamma R8 b7. It says DVD Read Error 1053.

    By the way I am currently running version 4.2E.

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem???

    I am also having this error. I am using:

    TDK Standard 4.7GB DVD-R, New Super Mario Bros. Wii[fixed] NTSC-U, IMG Burn @ 4x Speed, Wii with 4.2u, Neo Gamma Rev 8 Beta 7

    I would try something else, but I only have a couple of DVD-R's left and don't want to waste them finding out.

    I too, am having exactly the same problem, I just purchased a brand new wii and followed the 4.1 guide...

    I burned The New Super Mario Bros on a Verbatim DVD-R at 4x and I am getting Error 1053.

    The wii's I learned have a different laser to prevent it from reading burned disks. Try using a mass storage device or just go buy games.

    If you can't play any games at all, (and I would try using Verbatim DVD-R media and different games first to be sure of this), then you "may have a d3-2 drive, on option if this is the case is USB HDD loading for your games.

    more information on that here; http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-usb-hdd.html

    ROFL!!

    But seriously, I am getting this error also but my situation is a bit different because I had my wii fully softmodded using the Twilight hack and I was playing DVD-R backups for almost 1 year. and then I bricked it about 2 weeks ago and I had to send to Nintendo and they fixed it. However when they fixed it and sent it to me yesterday, the sys menu was changed to 4.2u. Could it be that they installed the new D3-2 drive since they saw that my wii was softmodded when they fixed it?? I didn't think they could add components to my wii without my permission. I told them to fix it NOT add other crap to it. I am using the same games that worked fine on my old wii via Neogamma before I bricked it but now all I get is the 1053 error. Do you all suspect I have the new D3-2 drive or is there a simpler way to remedy the 1053 error in my situation??

    I suspect that have updated the System Menu and not the drive, as updating the system menu is quicker, easier and faster for a repair centre to achieve, rather than to take a part a Wii and install a new drive / system board in.

    This guide will help users on 4.2
