    Unhappy DVD Read Error 1053 in Neogamma

    Hey all,

    Bought a Wii yesterday [LU72 model]. Followed the tutorial @ http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html without any issues. I've tried 3-4 games that work on 2 other Wiis that have successfully had the softmod installed. The discs are ??? light scribes. Since they work on the other 2 Wiis, I don't believe it is a media issue. I tried loading a Mario Kart ISO onto a WBFS formatted USB drive and it worked fine. I have a feeling that this Wii has the dreaded D3-2 drive. Is there any way to confirm my suspicions without taking apart the Wii and completely voiding my warranty? Is the D3-2 just unmodable at the moment or will it never be modable?

    Thanks in advance!

    Here is the data base, but you can't tell 100%. Just is likely.

    D3-2 drives seem to kick up the 1101 error.

    I plugged LU72 into a serial number data base and got this...

    •There is a 40% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip.**
    •And there is also a 27% chance the chipset is .
    •And a 20% chance the chipset is Combined GC2-D3 with no drive chip.
    •And a 7% chance the chipset is GC2R-D2A.
    •Lastly, a 7% chance the chipset is GC2-D2C (v1).


    D3-2 may be moddable in future. For now there's always USB and WODE in the near future.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Can D3 with no drive chip be modded? Is it the same as D3-2 chip?

    Yes all Wii's with any drive chip can be softmodded.
    Wii's with D3 can use some drivekeys, check supplier
    D3-2, Wode, USB and possibly Fusion.

    I got the same error message when I used the verbatim dvd+r disc's. I used a sony dvd-r on neogamma same version and it worked fine for most all of my games. So far I have burned over 8 working games.

    No DVD+R work. Most DVD-r should work but not all.
