    I'm having the same issue (error 2011). I'm on 4.3e _with_ recent d2x cISO installed, still no success. I've read that there is something with a "truncha" bug that needs to be exploited in order for this to work.

    i have a 4.3e wii and dvdx installer is NOT working for me, it installs properly but when i try playing anything on wiimc it says its not installed. when i go back to dvdx the install option is GONE and i have to reinstall it like it was never installed (only takes a second) etc. etc. plz help

    This awesome. Thanks for the simple steps Thundaboy1047. I wonder if there is any way to make a channel for it on the Wii. but anyway it's cool.

    My wii is sooooooo annoying. I try to install the dvdlib, but it says ERROR 2011 and doesn't install. I have tried every option possible. I can't play dvds either. The wii hums about, but then it freezes and I have to hold the Power button to restart the wii. Help

    Hi, is there any way to cross this one with the usb loader and play my films directly in the TV trough the wii? Can it play all formats? Amazing stuff by the way :)

    You can take a hard drive, partition it so that one partition is formatted to WBFS to play wii backups on usb loader, and another partition is formatted to FAT 32. Install http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Mplayer_ce on your Wii, and put all your video files that are compatible with Mplayer CE into the hard drive's FAT 32 partition. Launch Mplayer CE from the Homebrew channel, and choose which video you want to play. This doesn't always work since the Wii is so underpowered, some video files might lose audio sync, or freeze up.

    Ok, it is working the dvd but not in the usb. I'm not sure what to do with that file :S

    Thanks a lot. working :) Nice job :) Cheers
