    That's good to see that DriveKey is putting out an update. I would think that other companies will follow suit if they are having similiar issues with their chips as well.

    Cheers.

    What about Gamecube games? I have yet to find one that won't work with my Drivekey. Supposedly this is an issue with games like Rogue Squadron (audio streaming) but it play's fine. I havent tried any of the games that have soundtracks (Tony Hawks for example) which I imagine would have problems. What happens anyway? Do the games not work or does the audio not stream but otherwise the game works fine? I must have close to 30 Cube titles I've downloaded that all work 100%.

    The only problems I've had is with Japanese games. They don't work at all. It's too bad because there were a lot of great old school style shooters released only in Japan I'd love to play. There must be a loader for Gamecube games I could use but Drivekey is useless for these. I am on 4.2U so they might work with older firmware.

    4.2 U all games including NSMB wii work for me (I am a tester so I was sent a drivekey with the new update applied).
    The update for NSMB will be released , but to program the drivekey you'll require the jtag programmer. We are going to offer a few options to make this as cost effective for our customers as possible.

    Can you share the details on how you did this?

    I got it to work too, but you don't have to turn off the drive key. I have the fixed version of NSMB and I just run it through NeoGamma. Avatar has .bca protection but if you get the fixed version it runs fine on the Drive Key thru disc channel, so not sure why it was/is so hard to do the same with NSMB.

    Any idea on when the update is going to be released for the old Drivekey?

    Proud DriveKey (yellow sticker) owner. Every game i want to play works. Nice chip.

    I also have the older drivekey, like everyone else i wonder when they will release a update or the updater. Still the same post that was posted in november.

    this worked perfectly

    another game that is eluding me is Jurassic The Hunted, Fatal Frame patched with english subs, Professor Heinz Gravity, Iron Chef America. can't get these to play at all

    4.0u, NSMB Drivekey, NTSC

    i think those wouldn t work because if a game is modified at all or scrubbed then you wou ld need t softmod the system to boot it

    Thanks for your reply but this thread is 9 months old, so I don't think he'll be by to read it.
