    I just received a brand new Wii to mod today. It was on 4.0 and I updated to 4.2 thru nintendo and then ran thru the mod posted in the stickies above. I have done this at least 6 times now with no issue. This time, and backup I use with Neo Gamma r7 gives me a DVD read error 1101. I searched and couldn't come up with anything conclusive. It sounds like it could be the brand of disc. I am using RiData burned at 2x using imgBurn. I also read a couple of posts saying that there are certain drives that won't read backups ever. Is this true? USB loader works fine.

    Yeah, that's true. Don't know if the modchips bypass this sort of protection...

    Maybe it's using the D3-2 chipset. No backups will work...

    Yeah as bloodlust said it is probably one of the new Wii drives D3-2 . Ninty is trying to prevent backup's with hardware solutions now. Not sure what your serial number is but I know LU394 Wii's have this drive.

    Ninty = FAIL

    You will need to use a USB Loader like USB Loader GX or Wiiflow. Get a USB Hard drive and play backups till the cows come home [​IMG]

    Serial begins with LU112, so I think it is an older one. It was purchased from Best Buy as an 'Open Box'....

    Just google for a new disc drive to replace your old one. Then you can play backup discs in your wii.

    For European Wii's the serial that has these new drives starts with LEM102 although I hear LEH4xx also has these. I can only confirm LEM102 for now.

    -1101 means either your dvd drive is d3-2 as mentioned above or your laser is dead.
    if bootmii can install as boot2 then its more likely the laser is dead.

    @OP, I have been using RiData discs burned at 4X with 0 problems so while that doesn't rule out the media I would say the problem is likely with the drive.

    i get disk error 1011 aswell. its a fairly old wii so i doubt it is the d3-2 drive.
    bootmii installed as boot2,
    xxxzero you said this could mean the laser is dead, as in broken?, do i need a new drive?
    is it fixable?
