    I was thinking of getting a Wiikey, but a lot of people seem to be having problems lately with it making their Wii not be able to recognize any discs at all (backup and original). With all the confusion over updates and the like is this a bad time to get a modchip or should I go ahead and get a Wiikey or should I get something else like a Cyclowiz?

    its up to you which mod chip you decide to install. the people gettin the disk read errors and such are probobly people who have either installed there chip incorrectly rendering the drive useless or may bee a bad chip , but im very pleased with my wiikey

    I'm also happy with my WiiKey mod. I even think that is one fake Wiikey but works fine. I had updated to nintendo 3.0U firmware without any problem.

    We'll see what comes of the promised Wiikey update, but if you want a full featured chip that is being supported, I'd pick Cyclowiz in a heartbeat over Wiikey.

    You can load opensource code onto the Cyclowiz and unlike the Wiikey is actually have audio-fix.
