I am getting the 1101 error when using Neogamma and trying to read a backup copy of any disc on my friends Wii. Sometimes I get a 972 error, but mostly the 1101. my backup copy is a known good copy that works on MY personal console, and also has worked on all previous consoles I have done for friends. I have tried many different games burned on different brands of media and they were burned at different speeds. All of these variables do not seem to have an effect. this is the very first time I have encountered a wii that has trouble loading the backup titles. I know the hacks work because it can run games from my USB drive. The system is 4.1U, just recently updated from 3.2U. I used bannerbomb to install HBC then used TBR to install a patched ios36 and then installed r14 of Cios. If I hook up my USB drive to this console it can read the wbfs filesystem and load the games I have stored here using USB loader GX. It can rip an original title, but it cannot read a backup copy to try to rip it to HDD. Is there a very definitive test that I can do to determine if the laser is beginning to become faulty? When I launch a game and listen carefully I can hear it seeking the disc but the the laser is adjusting its depth so much that it makes a clicky sound. Neogamma R6 can populate the TitleID information when trying to read a backup, so I know it is able to see SOMETHING but I am not sure where it is failing at. I have noticed a few other threads with people having the same exact problem as I am, and there consoles are brand new from the store. That makes me thing this is a software related thing instead of the laser. This console had the same exact behavior on 3.2U so that is one of the reasons I updated it, but now it is doing the same thing on 4.1. I hope i've provided enough info so that someone can help me pinpoint the issue! Thanks to anyone that can help cause this is driving me nuts.
