    mod chip in but now the drive wont work

    Hi, I've just installed a wii key 2 solderless chip into my wii. I have a D2B. But now the disc drive wont work. When I power it up it doesnt do its normal spin and wont let me push a disc in. When I put the power on the 2 lights flash on the chip.

    Any ideas any one?

    remove the chip, and see if it works, if not you screwed up your drive meaning you can do 1 of 2 things

    return it/envoke your warenty

    or

    pm modderman, or spyman on how to fix it

    Yes the drive works fine once the mod chip is removed.

    no, it means theres a software issue with the chip, so you just start clean, i mean its not your drive if its working perfectly without

    I would download the update from the website, burn it onto a disc and try to flash it. If not then I don't know what else.

    Sorted it now. Spoke to the place I bought it from and they told me to cut 4 of the solder points (d,e,f,g). Done that and now the drive works.

    Now I'm trying to work out how to burn a wii game in ISO format onto a disc using my Mac. Any ideas?

    really any program is just fine as long as you understand it, and it actually works
