    Unhappy Please help: How to upgrate WiiKey2 to 1.3

    Hi all,

    Please don't laugh at me ! - It seems that everyone can update firmware of wiikey2 easily to 1.3... well, I can't.

    - I have wii 4.2e and wiikey2 (firmware 1.2) on wiiclip (2 wires install)
    - I have downloaded wk2EurV1.3.tar.bz2 and burned wk2EurV1.3.iso on DVD-R
    - All games work fine with firmware 1.2 except NSMB which is why I want upgrade wiikey2 to firmware 1.3.

    When I boot Wii nothing happens... I tired config dvd as well as firmware dvd, but still no luck.

    Do I need to do something special to run this firmware update ??? Should I do it thru some channel ??

    Could someone describe the procedure how to flash it for me PLEASE !?


    Please help

    Ouch !

    I did that and it's not working.... DVD is not recognized at all... I am 100% sure I burned it correctly, I tossed 6 dvds in trying to get it working...

    Do you think that there is problem in my 2 wire wiikey2 / wiiclip install ???

    VCC, GND and A, B,C signals, 5, my mistake.

    I fixed problem by burning firmware on another brand of the dvd. It worked.

    Thanks all...

    NSMB works fine. Firmware update went fine as well.

    As the matter of fact, I am still shocked that all problems were related to media type/brand. I was using DVD+R PRIMEON lightscribe (MBIPG101). I got lucky with DataWrite (RITEKF1) and TDK DVD-R (MBI 01RG40).

    I just burned NSMB using Plextor PX-800A on primeone media (one that was giving me problems before on NEC Optiard AD-7241S) and it works just fine.

    Apparently even weak media such as above mentioned are fine if burned well with good burner. I did some nero cd-dvd speed quality tests, and indeed Plextor has much less PI Errors, therefore it makes sense that Wii works better with Plextor burned dvds. As far as I saw on the web, cdFreaks and other forums people prefer LiteOn, BenQ and Samsung... Not Optiarc...

    When I went ot update my Wiikey2 to 1.3 my Wii also would not detect my disc at all, I used the same disc I have used for many games Verbatim, and it would not read until I used a backup launcher and it read and ran fine, No problems after that, just weird that it would not read the disc through the disc chanel???

    Strange isn't it ? Like your currently installed key isn't doing it's job ? Can you play backup games thru disc channel or you have to use backup launcher ?

    No all of my games work fine through the disc chanel, It's just weird that I had to run the update disc through the backup launcer.
