    Did your console come with the 4.X firmware? There's a good chance that you may have a D3-2 Drive which prevents DVDR Backup reading. Your only option softmod wise, is to use a USB Loader. Try to burn another Verbatim DVD-R at low speeds just to be sure.

    No. It came w/ FW 3.4U. I burned it at 4x. Do I have to format USB flash drive for the .iso file as well.

    You'll have to format your USB device to WBFS using WBFS Manager. Its recommended to use an external hard drive instead of a pen drive. USB Loading has advantages over Disc loading, it is faster and utilizes space since WBFS trims the isos. For more info on USB Loading, look hereL

    Do you remember when you got your console and what are the first four characters of the serial number.

    According to the Wii Drive database, you do not have a D3-2 Drive:
    Wii Drive Chip Database

    But the drives were added in 2008. When did you get your console?

    Try burning another game on a Verbatim DVD-R at low speeds.

    Well that's odd. My Wii's Serial Number is LU71527174, and wiidrives.com says

    * There is a 75% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip.
    * And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is Combined GC2-D3 with no drive chip.

    And I can play backups with NeoGamma. I don't know what firmware mine came with, as I updated it right away to 4.2 when I got it this Christmas.

    Well then, it couldn't be a D3-2 Drive, as these have recently emerged. Try using a different cIOS249 version. You can try rev13b. Download the installer and run it. Use IOS249 for installation. Download from here:
    cIOS38-rev13b Installer.rar

    Also try a different iso on a different disc. It could be your media..
