    I have never had any problems playing any backups on a wii with wiikey 2, everything has always, and still does work great. However when testing recently downloaded/burned backups of Goldeneye and Donkey Kong Country Returns, they do not work. The initial splash menu shows the game just fine, but when attempting to load the game it gives the 002 error.

    Now I have spent hours searching for info, but everywhere I turn, the discussions are all about playing them on softmodded systems. Softmod this, softmod that, doesn't anybody use a good old Wiikey2 anymore?

    I'm making a wild guess that perhaps for games to run on softmodded systems they might have to be patched in some way, and perhaps those copies had been patched one way or another to work on softmodded systems, but making them incompatible with wiikey2? Just a guess.

    Can anyone help me solve this issue?

    Both work on Wiikey 1 without softmod, wii/wiikey latest version. Are the games from you region ? NTSC / PAL

    So, im pretty sure both works with Wiikey 2.

    you are missing some IOS files. You can use Modmii to update or do a nintendo update to 4.3

    Thanks for the help. Just 2 questions.

    1. Will it make any difference if I use that modmii program to update, vs just doing an official update from a retail game, or online or however the official way is?

    2. If I were to update by one of those methods, would it still be possible to easily softmod later on? Or would I need to softmod first to be on the safe side? I never cared about softmodding, since a wiikey2 works fine, but i don't want to potentially loose the option to just in case things evolve in the future, or wiikey2 becomes obsolete.

    if you have the latest HBC installed then no problem.

    I have only 2 problems EVER with Wiikey 2 (well, 3 if you count that 4.2 and above, region free doesn't work, but priiloader takes care of that)

    1) Missing an IOS (modmii or the like will fix it for ya... you prolly need 58 or sth

    2) I burned a scrubbed version. If it's scrubbed, then you need the IOS the game uses to have the trucha bug in it (yes, I use darkcorps for that because, well... it's easy.
