OK, here's my story: one of my Wii's disk drives was making a loud noise when it was reading the disk, and started throwing disk read errors even when non-backup disks were in the drive. So I got a new disk drive off ebay, replaced the defective one, and it's smooth as silk now. Non-backups run just fine. But now backups won't run. NeoGamma (R9 b47) is giving Err: DVD Err 1208, says that the disk drive's date is 20080714, and says "Most likely no DVD-Rs possible". These are the same disks that worked fine before, and still work fine on another softmodded Wii. I've tried games on both DVD-Rs and DVD+Rs. Nothing. Is there some firmware in the new DVD drive that needs to be updated before I can run backups again? Or did Nintendo just disable the ability for Wii disk drives to read burned DVDs at some point?
