    my wiikey all of the sudden couldnt read backups

    remembering how back in the PSX scene u sometimes had to turn it upside down to work i tried it.

    LOL! IT WORKED!

    try it if ur having problems with the wiikey 1.9g, i actually want to know if this is solving people's problems. If not, my connections might be loose

    Your laser/lens assembly is worn out.

    you could possibly tweak the pot to give it more power, or just buy a new one off ebay for @£20.00, they are a fairly easy fit.

    its normal that the laser dies fast if you use non-original media

    "its normal that the laser dies fast if you use non-original media"

    No offense, but this is a myth. The lasers do NOT wear out faster or slower no matter what media you use. FYI.

    Proof? Method of operation?

    You want to tell me how a solid state laser is going to "wear out"?

    Please, I am asking for real proof. I will eat my words if I am shown some.

    A GC dying isn't proof. I never had burned GC games and I went through 3 or so.

    It is my understanding that lasers very rarely die. Rather, it's the parts around it that are more likely to fail.
