Been a softmod user for about 2 years and come across my fair share of issues, but haven't got a clue about this one...
DISK READ ERROR 1048
Any clues anyone?
Fresh from the error code index. Welcome!
1048, 1053 & 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 (will not work for new wiis/this has worked only for LU39 models). Also this error will persist on newer wiis, meaning that they have the new D3-2 chip which cannot read backups at all. Only option for them is USB loading.
(I would probably recommend using cios38rev17 and neogamma rev8 though)
Welcome to the community! Members of the community are extremely helpful, and there is information throughout the site on just about every issue you could imagine. Make sure you read ShadowSonic2's Wiihacks Ultimate Index. Here are a few things to help you get going:
1) Read the Rules of the site. They are important and there are consequences to ignoring the rules, not that you would do anything like that.
2) Read the Tutorials and Guides.
3) SEARCH for questions you may have before starting a new thread. If you would like to narrow your search, choose the option on the search page that says "Search Titles Only."
4) The advice on this site is all free, but it does cost money to operate. If you're able it would be greatly appreciated if you DONATE.
It is NOT advised that you update to system menu 4.2 at the moment. Although it can still be modded, it's only reason for existing was to eliminate the homebrew channel.
If you have not softmodded yet, there's an excellent guide by dogeggs for system menu 3.1-4.1 FOUND HERE
And a wonderful guide by messie for system menu 4.2 FOUND HERE
Any other problems can usually easily be found by searching.

Thanks alot for the quick responce, i read something about D3-2 chip at christmas, nevermind, I wil l set him up with a USB Loader.
Would this chip stop all media disk types?
Yup. All disc loading. External HDD would work though. If you have any problems feel free to post them in the forum as this is the introductions thread. Welcome!
