    Talking Updated wii from internet now won´t recognise backups and won´t read NTSC games

    Hello.
    I have a PAL wii, bought in the Netherlands. I had someone install a mod chip (wii key I believe) and it would read back ups and games from other regions.

    I am now living in Mexico, and I connected the wii to the Internet and stupidly ran an update... now wii won´t read any back ups or American games.

    I read about updating the wii key... but I really don´t know how to do this... is there a step by step guide somewhere that I can follow?
    ill updating the wii key fix this problem?

    Thank you all in advance.

    The 4.2 update stops you from playing out of region games. Updating your wiikey will not help. Sorry.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Dear Krank,
    Thank you for your response.
    What about reading back ups? After the update it wont read any of my back ups.
    Is there any way to fix this?

    Your wiikey might be fried. Some 4.2 can fry a modchip. You may have been the unlucky few. You can try to open up the wii and see if the lights are flashing like they are suppose to on the chip.
    Come to the Irc room to get help or just have fun

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.

    dear mamacita,
    u may like to try these,
    a. reburn the previous game disc with 16x dvd-r at 2x~4x burning speed ( as low as possible)
    b. buy yourself a usb-hdd (120GB~320GB suggested) and start ur USB-Loader adventure. u could migrate all your previous games into the hdd at wish

    Thank you all for your replies. I went back and tried all of the back ups just to check, and some of them are playable, some of them the wii won´t recognize at all and others it will recognize the game on the main screen, but once I click on the disk channel it can´t read the disk... (My orginal back-ups where done in DVD+R burned at low speed... and they all used to work fine.)
    Do you know why this happens on some and not on others?

    I will try billyhome´s advice and re-burn the games to see if it will work.

    Technically if the drive has bitsetting it could be set to DVD-ROM. Either would work, but there's a school of thought that says -R is easier on the laser. If you used +R, you may want to look into your settings on the backup loader and see if you have enabled the -002 error fix.

    Edit: oh, hardmod only then, right? I do know a hardmodded 4.2 Wii will only play games from the same region --- there is no work-around with 4.2 and hardmods.
