    Possible WiiKey 2 clone?

    Hi guys,

    I bought 3 WiiKey 2 with yellow sticker from Digimartz.com I installed two last night. 5 wire install. On both consoles, when inserting and ejecting disks, about 1 out of 5 the drive will hang up. I have to power down and the drive will reset itself, allowing disks to be played or ejected but the problem continues.

    I did not receive a WiiKey decal with these. Chip only. They shipped from China.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    try running the WiiKey2 firmware / configuration update disc.

    when you're done updating, make sure to run an NTSC-U game right after to set the region on the chip.

    I believe these came with the 1.2 update on them, thus the yellow sticker. When I inserted the update disk, it did not give me the option to update or flash.

    No, they are clones. WiiKeys come with the hologram decal in the chip packaging. These came without decals.

    Lesson learned!

    I purchased mine from an official distributor and it didn't have a hologram on it. It did accept the update disc though. : X


    check this out:

    it's an official WiiKey2 soldering contest. Take a look at the chips. No hologram or nothing on them. Compare your chip to those.

    Well no, there is no decal ON the chip itself. It is usually in the ESD packing the chips are in. When you cut open the ESD packet, you pull out the chip and decal.

    All of the WiiKeys I have purchased in the past had the decal, this order, did not.

    Ours all come with a wiikey decal in the ESD packaging, they are supposed to come with that. The chip itself can be white or blue, and has no hologram on the chip itself.

    To always be safe order from the distributors, its the only way you can really know for sure what you are getting.

    Update!

    I have been in contact with Winnie from Buy R4DS, DSTT, M3 Real, Acekard 2, N5DS, R4 SDHC at Digimartz.com Winnie says they will take them back for a refund.

    We'll see how it goes and I'll post back.
