Sorry to bump this thread, but would this "3 taps" work on the rescue menu? I've a bricked Wii here and I'm getting myself a drivekey to repair it.. (the idiot here downgraded from 3.3k to 3.2u with CIOS Downgrader even tho ARC wasn't able to downgrade)
new USA wii with yellow sticker drive key; Found drivekey menu accessible at wii menu and startup menu (press A). Click eject three times no matter the speed. Disc drive lights up as if disc inserted.(start without disc in drive by the way) At wii menu look at disc menu and there will be "game cube game inserted" start up game and access drive key menu. Use reset button to toggle down or navigate thru drive key menu and hold reset button to make changes at selected area. What did not work for me was starting a game up and while playing a game trying to access the drive key menu.
Don't know if it will help but I have the yellow tag drivekey and I have to hold the a button while pressing eject 3 times. Just hitting a doesn't work for me.
I am also having the same problem of not being able to access the configuration menu. Previously it worked.
My backup and original discs keep on getting disc error so I replaced the laser but this did not help
i was having trouble with it but got it after a few attempts
wait for health and safety screen to come up
wait for hit a button to come up
hit eject 3 times wait about 15 - 20 seconds
there should be a game cube sign where disc play box is click on it
should be set up as you would want it unless you need to autoboot
