all games... on my other modded Wii, they work...
I'm on the same boat. Get error 1053 with every game i play on a soft modded wii i bought today at gamestop. It had system menu 4.1 installed already. I softmodded it and did the trucha bug stuff and downgraded iso15.
I used an official nintendo wii sd card (sandisk). I tried Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles and Punch Out!. I used larry's guide from afterdawn forums. Also able to play vc and wiiware. Just not any dvdr backups (Verbatim dvd-r, 2.4x speed, in imgburn).
yea, same setup for me too...
and same error, not sur if this is a disc drive that JUST can't be burnt, but not sure.
I wold like to know if it is the drive. I would use the USB loader, apparently that works, but this wii is for a buddy and he wont know how to do that.
I'm hoping we don't have the new d3-2 drives. If that is the case then dvdr backups won't work for us. Only usb loaders (External hdds).
any way to check without cracking the case?
Nope! Thats why i'm not doing it. Don't want to void the warranty. I guess we both have to wait for some expert advice on this matter. Lets hope we are not victims. I already got three backups ready to get some play (If we are cleared).

I think you folks have to get yourselves USB HDDs to play your game backups. The old 1053 error code used to mean just a bad burn or media problem. Now it is coming up as some combination possibly associated with NeoGamma and newer Wiis-maybe more with the black Wiis. Unknown cause or fix - except NeoGamma in various versions won't work.
USB HDDs do work in those Wiis previously reporting this problem: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-usb-hdd.html
