    So, I'm using NeoGamma R8. When I try to load a DVD backup, it be Gamecube or Wii, "I get DVD Read Error (1167)". When I load from USB it works fine. It's just disks that are not working. Any ideas as to what's going on?

    Wii:
    Region: NTSC-U running 4.1U
    cIOS38r17
    Sony DVD+Rs
    Tried NeoGamma and USB loader GX...Neither worked

    I also tried Memorex DVD-Rs, but when I put it in the drive, NeoGamma says there is no disk, and USB loader GX starts loading then reboots the Wii.

    No way. I got my Wii on release day back in 2006.

    Google bitsetting and/or booktype of DVD+Rs. Oh and it's something only related to DVD+Rs, it's not possible on DVD-Rs. Oh i forgot, you need to bitset DVD+Rs to DVD-Rs if you want to use them in your Wii.

    Do you know about the backup resistant drives? Are you sure your Wii doesn't have one of these?

    Yes, I know about back up resistant drives. I don't think I can have one, because I got my Wii at launch day.

    Which brand of DVD-R's did you use?
    Also, DVD+R's do not work normally on a Wii without a modchip. You need to bitset them as WiiPower said.

    DVD-R's should work with almost every brand, but, ofcourse, there are some exceptions.

    I used Memorex DVD-Rs.

    Also, I'm gonna try bitsetting my DVD+Rs, but I don't know which drive I have. Any way to find out which drive it is?

    Sry my fault dude,,,,
    are ur wii new? lu70+
    cause newer wiis cant read DVD cause D3-2 drive,, this "new" chipset just allow original DVD games. And USB softmod is working fine!
    i think this is ur problem... d3-2 chipset.

    i softmod 5+ wii 4.2u this weekend and all LU74. All failed to run DVD backup but worked perfect through USB device.

    i hope this solve ur doubt.
