    I Own a pal wii i installed a drive key and have installed 4 since for brother and friends and we are all very happy with them except one problem they wont play any NTSC games i was able to get a buck up loader to play tatsunoko vs capcom generation of heroes but now i have 4.2 and it was all wiped as you all know lol
    i have emailed Drive key no reply none of the wiis ive installed it on play NTSC titles has anyone had the same problem or knows why this is happening ive checked the Drive key settings on all wiis so its not that, it leads me to believe that the Drive key doesentt even play other regions games so should i contact the people i purchased the Drive Key off and demand replacements is there something i can do that people have figured out ive tried about 10 NTSC titles on all 4 wii's
    please help or even if you have had the same problem and cant fix it let me know thanks heaps guys peace !!!! [/size]

    This is a common issue when updating to 4.2 it breaks your Wiis regionfree "ability"...

    Play foreign discs through neogamma or gecko OS 1.9.3

    And how do you get your homebrew stuff back on ur Wii? Check this: http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/

    Yeah ive heard people say that but the thing is it have never worked even since 3.3e i think my wii was at the time of putting in the drive key i just get that black screen and lights go off on remotes. so im sure it is the drive key but yeah like u said now it could be both problems.

    some ntsc games turn the wiimote off, you know its not supported then.
    only about 50% of the import games worked that way.

    now with the 4.2 release you need to install the homebrew channel and boot games using gecko os.
    This will let you play every import game without problems.
