    Hi

    I have had a WiiKey put into my little machine. All was working fine - downloaded and did the updates etc no probs. Have been playing my back-up games with no probs. Now for some reason the Wii will only read the originals. Won't read ANYTHING else - not even the config discs... update discs... recovery discs...

    Keep getting told to reset my Wii and all will be well - but it won't read ANY disc to enable me to do that. When I put originals in there is the immediate whirring and clicking and all is well. When I put it my config discs or back-up games - silence.

    Have I 'bricked' my Wii somehow (whatever that means) - Have I killed my Wii Chip??

    Please don't suggest updating/reconfiguring etc - it will not read discs. I have tried various types of disc too as the ones that used to read no longer do.My Wii version is 3.2E at the minute.


    Do I need a new chip - could someone just make things a bit clearer for me please.

    In anticipation

    Thanks People........

    Hi - thanks for replying so quickly.

    My Wiikey version was updated to 1.9b.

    Cannot update any further as it no longerreads my discs - unless they are originals.

    No backups workings means the chip isn't working or the wires got off recheck all points :/

    A few things you can try:

    Unplug the Wii for 30 seconds and then try again
    Open Up the Wii and check for loose wires.

    Hi SuperRob

    My laser seems fine as it is playing all my other discs fine - it is just my back-up discs that no longer play

    Yes i know.
    But becurse of that the laser needs more to read a writeable disc it wont read them after they did enogh damage to it.
    You are not the first one which experienses this.

    I'm just going to say this. The laser is of a fixed brightness. It doesn't work harder to read backups.
