    two possibilities:
    1. you have to pad the image (search)
    2. you have to run gcos first (search)

    I did this:
    Update to 3.1U -> Install WiiKey -> Upgrade WiiKey to 1.9g -> Run GCOS'd Config Disc 1.3 (and enabled region override). I'm told to do the SMG update next, which I'll do when it finishes d/l'ing.

    I was able to run the 1.9g upgrade disc with 3.1U without doing anything special (it was a prepadded 1.4gb iso image).

    A few questions:

    1) Do you need to update previous patches onto Wiikey first before you update 1.9g?

    2) Do you burn the 1.9g update on CD or DVD?

    And right now, I burnt it on CD and DVD, my Wii is version 3.1U already before I try updating it with 1.9g, but the update doesn't seem to work, just keep saying, unable to read the disk...

    unable to read the disc could mean you have a bad connection, or the disc isnt proper.
    burn the update to a DVD.
    get the update disc that is padded to 1.4gb.

    you don't have to do earlier updates first. and if you download the wiikey.cn update there is an exe file right in there to pad it. but try to run what you have already on GCOS.
    Note: the wii will NOT read any cd-based media, ONLY dvd.

    ha....what's GCOS....lol never encountered this update problem before O_O like the Metroid Prime trick (what's that?) haha

    and the wiikey.cn site is still down....so which update are you talking about?

    I already burnt the US version of the 1.9g update on DVD, but my Wii still can't read the disc....

    Use this...

    WiiKey 1.9g Update Disc:
    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/597460
    (see: "Padded files for those who are Filechop-challenged", halfway down first post.)

    Then...
    WiiKey 1.3 Setup Disc, modded with GCOS:
    http://psx-scene.com/forums/wiikey/59745-g...onfig-disc.html
    (see: "GCOS Versions Of The Wiikey 1.3 Config Disc", first post.)

    .. I've used both of these discs successfully in my 3.1U (USA/NTSC) Wii with the WiiKey.
    I updated straight to 1.9g (I didnt go to 1.9b first).
    I enabled region override using the GCOS'd 1.3 Setup Disc.
    Everything works great.

    When I updated my Wiikey to 1.9g, I never even had to pad the 1.9g update file. I just burned the 32mb file to a 4.7gb Verbatim -R DVD using ImgBurn @ 1x speed. Never had an issue. What type of media are you using and are you burning at a low speed as well? Treat the update the same way as a game backup when burning and you should have no issues.

    I burned 1.9g straight to disc unpadded and it didn't load.
    All my backups are on Taiyo Yuden 8x DVD+R media, burned at 8x on a Lite-On drive.
    About two days of heavy playing of different games, and not a single DRE's yet.

    Slim chance my first burn was a bad burn? Bad image? Random chance?
