    Us Wiikey Fusion discovery

    I discovered that sometimes when you use SD cards, backup iso images will not work unless they are the only image on the sd card. I have a backup copy of Madden 12 that would not work on my 32GB SD card with other backed up isos on it but when I gave it its own 4GB SD card, it worked. Just something to think of if an iso is not working. I'm testing this with my other backups that would not work. I'll keep you posted.

    This also works for Go Vacation. Needs to be on its own SD Card.

    Seems to be working on other games too. Only 1 iso allowed per SD card. Worked on Alien-Monster Bowling League.

    This is still working...I have Guitar Hero 5, Metroid Prime 3, and more working now. I'm burning the backups to DVD-Rs instead of using them one at a time on SD cards though. Seems better that way to me.

    2 months later and my lastest findings in this update about the Wiikey fusion. I am burning most backups as loading them on SD card to find out if they work with other isos on the same SD card became old to me.


    Final conclusions:

    1.) You can have some multiple isos on the same SD card and play all the games on them. It depends on the iso as some will only work when they are the only iso on the card. Other isos will work with multiple isos on the same SD card. You need to just try each backup iso on the SD card with others until the SD card is filled up with backup isos that can work on a card with multiple isos. I have about 12 backup isos on a 32GB SDHC card (that work) and will probably add to fill the card later if I want to spend the time finding out which isos will work on a single SDHC card with other backup isos on it. I think a lot of wiikey fusion owners have this problem when they complain about black screens and disc read errors when playing backup isos from an SD card as I had the same problems before I discovered that some isos that didn't work on a card with multiple isos would only work on the SD card when they were the only iso on the card. Errors when having a non-compatible iso on a multiple iso SD card include:

    - the wii instantly going to a black screen and the wii remote not responding when the wii searches the DVD iso to determine what it is after first booting up
    - the wii instantly going to a DVD read error screen and the wii remote not responding when the wii searches the DVD iso to determine what it is after first booting up
    - the wii reading the iso by displaying the game's title graphics on the DVD channel and then going to a black screen once you select play
    - the wii reading the iso by displaying the game's title graphics on the DVD channel and then going to a DVD read error screen once you select play

    If this happens to you, check out the iso by loading it by itself on an SD card and it will probably work. I've NEVER had a backup iso not work.



    2.) The wiikey fusion works flawlessly with every burned DVD-R iso backup I've thrown at it. The only errors I get from time to time (which are not bothersome at all) are:

    - the wii will reset itself when first loading a game (does this about 1-2% of the time). After it resets you can play the game normally by selecting it from the DVD menu and selecting play when the wii restarts.

    - You can't play the everybody votes channel or some other channel items without a DVD in the drive or else it will crash and restart the wii. It doesn't matter if the DVD is a backup or original it just needs to be in the drive to make the channels work. This is not detrimental to the wii. When there is only an SD card in the wii, this is not a problem. In my best guess, it's because the wiikey fusion always checks for a disc when you run a program on the wii and crashes when it can't find any DVD in the drive or SD card.

    - The wii will not shut down from the wii remote if you leave a backup DVD iso in the drive. The wii will shutdown with the power key turning red and then a couple of seconds later boot up like you pushed the power on key on the wii remote. To totally shut off your wii, you need to take the backup dvd iso out and turn off the wii. This is not a problem if there is no DVD-R in the drive and you just have an SD card in the wii.



    Let me know if this solves any of the problems with the wiikey fusion as I now TOTALLY enjoy my wiikey fusion even if it does have a slight few problems. Please note that I only play NTSC region backup isos so I've never tested other region backup isos in any of the examples above. Would love feedback to see if I helped anybody out there.

    My wii specs are:
    Wiikey Fusion v1.5
    DVD Drive Version: GC2-D2E (2006 Wii)

    no softmods at all
    Wii firmware 4.3U
