    Question Do copied DVD games sometimes freeze/lock with WiiKey 2?

    Wii (D2E - v4.2U)
    WiiKey 2 (latest 1.3 firmware)
    Verbatim DVD-R discs (burned w/ Img Burn @ 4x)
    --------------------------------

    Hi. I just installed the WiiKey 2 modchip in my Wii and play games burned on DVD discs (no softmod; no other 3rd party apps).

    Once in a while I notice that a game will FREEZE after 10 minutes of play. I just click the 'home' button on the Wii remote and click on the game in the disc channel and I start over again.

    I would like to know if this sporadic freezing is NORMAL with the WiiKey....or is something wrong on my end?

    Thanks.

    No it is not normal. I had my wiikey2 for over a year now and it never freeze on me. I also have the same drive as you but I'm not the 4.2 firmware. I wonder if it could be the 4.2 firmware but im sure that its still not normal as I haven't heard any members talk about this problem even if they are on firmware 4.2.

    It could be caused by scratches that u made.With backups,u must be very carefull.They spin 2 times slower than originals so every single scratch is dangerous for backup!

    Pardon my ignorance but is it possible to downgrade from the 4.2 firmware or is that not possible with the Wii system. Thanks.

    Possible but not really worth the risk. Just don't go there if you can help it.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Yes that is true for softmods.... He has a wiikey2 in it so it reads at original speeds which is 6X.
