    I just got a Wii Motion Plus and having some problems. When I go to a game like Wii Sports Resort that looks for the Motion Plus, the game tells me to insert it when its already inserted in. If I switch remotes and put that Motion Plus in my other remote it works. But on the other remote I still have some problems. Sometimes there isn't that hand pointer on the screen so I have to turn off the Wii and turn it back on for the pointer to be there. Another thing is when I insert my nunchuck into the Wii Motion Plus for that game on Wii Sports Resorts it doesn't recognize my nunchuck.

    EDIT: Running on 4.2 softmodded Wii. IOS249.

    I'd recommend a generic test on the functionalities. i.e Resync'd? locked in the motion plus? etc. Just as a background check for what could've gone wrong.

    Did you drop that wiimote into something perhaps?

    No I don't think I dropped it. The wiimote works fine without the motion plus. And diagnoss programs for the Wii?

    It sounds more like the plug for the wiimote is broken. Try plugging in a nunchuk and see if it works.

    I mean without the motion plus

    Nunchuck works fine. Well actually I did have some problems with my Nunchuck before when it always used to turn right, a simple reboot of the Wii fixed the problem though.

    Is it an official controller or is it a knock off? Some knock offs may not work with official gear.

    That's probably the problem then... like I said, not all knock offs work... some do, some don't.

    No real way to tell other than opening it up, or comparing it for visual differences from a known original. No work around either. Maybe get a knock off Motion Plus and see if it works with it. They're like $10 shipped from dealextreme... may find them cheaper somewhere else. Still not guaranteed to work. Having imprints and labels mean nothing. I have 5 knock offs. Three are visually identical in every way. The other two have a sllightly different blue on the home key. If you think it's a knock off, it probably is... I mean... why else would you think that.
