    Hi, I have a Wiikey 1.9g with Wii 3.1U, and I've burned about 10-12 games with Verbatims @ Imgburn 4x and never had a problem like this before. I tried playing No More Heroes, but I keep getting a DRE at the disc channel. This is the first time I'm trying a Japanese game, so I'm not sure if it's a coincidence or not that this could either be just a bad burn or I need to fix some wiikey setting.

    I had it professionally installed, but I thought they installed region free out of the box. Do I have to run that setup disc or something to make it work? If so, I heard that the 3.x firmwares on Wii block the use of these discs now...what do you think?

    Also, I know the iso works because I know someone who is playing it on his.
