    Make sure you are using DVD-R media. Else, DVD+R needs to be book-typed to DVD-ROM.

    Newer Wii systems have drives in them that can not plat backup disc. If this is the case you will get the 1101 error message. You will need to use a USB Loader to load your games if you have 1 of these new drives.

    Error 1101 doesn't always mean you will have 1 of the new drives. But if you have a new Wii System and keep getting the error then more then likely you have 1 of the new drives.
