    wii is brand new about 2 month old, d2c chip i think...
    I got this file, su-g1j2008.iso.

    its a PAL version of G1 Jockey.

    i checked your compatibility list and it sayd from PAL to NTSC:

    "Works perfectly with WiiKey ***but*** you need to load Free loader first. Note: Video signal messed up on TV's not compatible with 50hz"

    I have no idea what is Wiikey or Freeloader,

    so all i did is BrickBlock it, then Region Free to USA, then burnt it using IMGburn on 2.4x on a Verbatim CD.

    Result:

    about half of the times i put the disc in the wii says Unknown Disc,
    the other half, it shows the screen, and when i say start game it gives me an error to take the disc out and restart the wii,
    (black screen + white text)
    im getting this error with LOADS of games...


    please what should i do?
    what is freeloader and Wiikey?

    and why do i keep getting this error with over half of my games?


    thnx alot in advance ;]

    Wiikey is a modchip [​IMG]
    Freeloader gives the ability to load import region games.

    Find out what modchip you have, and tell me, maybe then, I can help you more [​IMG]

    just checked for the wii version, its 3.3U, could it be the problem? too new maybe?

    this is the version that came with the chip, never installed any update.

    edit: btw sometimes instead of black screen + white text, only black screen shows, and wii remote turns itself off, and i have to reset manualy.

    I have the same problem here.
    Where can we buy a ntsc version of this game. I brought a pal version, though it will work in my ntsc cracked wii, but it is not working. I tried to download the iso also, and it's not wooking either.
    Any idea?

    Thanks

    The only way for me to get G1 Jockey to work on my Wii is to use the old Decrution method on the disc. Backup-Creater that had to be done originally to get games to work before reading 1:1s was possible. G1 Jockey burnt that way works perfect for me. No other way will allow it to work on my Wii, but works perfect dectypted.
