    Unhappy wiikey2 problems

    Hello

    I am new to the wii community, but it seems to help with a lot of different difficult issues.

    I just bought a wii with d2e chipset, and i bought a wiikey 2 on a wiiclip v14.

    I installed it with no problems, and then i follewed the instructions of putting an original game in as the first one. It worked fine! then i rebooted and put in the image disc that i downloaded from wiikey.cn: "Wiikey 2 Update/Config Combined Disc v1.2 - 'Asgard Core'". It skipped the part about updating, but on my instructions (from a danish web site") it appeared that that was normal when the wii was very new. after clicking on the disc, it wemt straight to the blue menu, where i chose the relevant options (on, on, 6x, 6x, 6x, 6x).
    then i tested my new modded wii with a burned copy of top spin 3 and it worked beautifully! unfortunately mario kart wii, rtl winter sports, tiger woods 09, and mario and sonic at the olympic games won't work! when i try i get an error "unable to read disc".

    Does anyone know what i have to do to make it work? Top Spin is fun, but mario kart is a game for legends...

    could be a couple of things here.

    1. Update the firmware. Don't skip that. The 1.2 has many fixes on it. After updating the firmware, play an original game within your region code. This is done to set the chip's proper region.

    2. What type of discs are you using? If they're DVD+R, then you'll have mixed results.

    3. The WiiClip ordered was for the D2C / D2C2 / D2E right? There is another model for the DMS / D2A / D2B

    thanks for the quick reply! amazing!

    can i use the 1.9s? Im having trouble finding the 1.2! or is the 1,9 only for wiikey1. i have the 1.2 file from the wiikey.cn website, but when i put that disc in, it jumps straight to the blue screen with options...

    and yes I am using dvd+r... if the update doesnt work im gonna go straight to the shop. what type do you recommend? brand?

    this is the clip i bought WII-CLIP for WIIKEY,D2CKEY,D2CPRO,ARGON,D2PRO ....... They way i understand the instructions is that i do not have to solder any wires... right?

    The 1.9s is strictly for the WiiKey 1. Yikes. I didn't skip the 1.2 firmware update, so I'm not sure how to trigger it again. I had no idea it'll stop checking and take you to the config. : X

    I'll have to do some research on that one.

    Verbatim DVD-R. There's something about the booktype setting on the -R's along with the Verbatim Azo recording dye that the Wii loves.

    There are many different packages for Verbatim discs, so this might vary, but I'm using these:


    I'm not sure where you live, but if you're in the US, here's a coupon to save you a few dollars.

    Correct. I misspoke when I said "models of WiiClip". When you order from a shop, most places have the option of having the WiiKey 2 pre-attached to the clip. You have to let the shop know when drive chip is currently in your system because the A-F solders vary.

    If you're able to boot a copy, you should be fine.

    thats what i thought. i didnt use the 1,9, bc i suspected it was only for wiikey 1. anyways, can i check what kind of firmware i have somehow? ive tried inserting the config disc 1.2 again, but now it wont even read that...

    i just bought the wii and the clip so im hoping maybe the 1.2 is already installed and i just have to get the right dvd's. i guess that the best case scenario...

    I'm almost sure it's the DVD's causing the config issue too.

    Go with the -R
    Burn using ImgBurn at the lowest speed possible.

    the issue is every drive is fickle, and some games are too

    some work easily
    others dont
    others need silly fix's like no GC stuff

    i would try burning on every level, and seeing waht happens, if not then your wii wont read from that dye

    What did you do to fix the problem??? I have a wiikey 2 with yellow sticker. it is installed on a drive that is D2C and the unit loads correctly. I can play original games but I can't load the disc with firmware V1.2 Everytime i put it in it says can't read disc. I am using Memorex DVD-R, same as I use for burning DVD movies and I never had a problem before.
