    Ok, I recently had a wiikey installed, and could play backups fine. A couple of minutes ago, I flashed my wiikey with the 1.9b update. Now, it won't read ANY discs? It will say "disc cannot be read". How do I fix this? Thanks.

    Chuck in the GCOS 1.3 Setup Disc and redo all the settings.

    Get the recovery disc from Wiikey site and try again.

    You sure? I mean the website says use ONLY if it was a bad flash. I don't *think* it was a bad flash, since it finished, but I'll try.

    I couldn't read any games until I used the 1.3 setup disc.

    You have a wiikey clone, I don't. I was playing games just fine until I flashed my wiikey with the 1.9b update.

    I also had my Wii playing backups just fine. Yesterday I turned it on and it can't read any backups at all (no Wiikey setup discs, nothing), just originals [​IMG] The wii wasn't moved around or anything that could cause the chip to move inside. Is this a recurring trend when using wiikeys?

    Thanks, I will try it out later. Is there any technical reason as to why this one will boot and no other backup (even the wiikey flashers/config discs) will? Thanks again.

    I think it's to do with the different areas of the chips.
    They have a 'flash' area where the main firmware is and an 'eeprom' area where basic settings are kept and can be changed ect

    If the eeprom area isn't programmed (many clones come this way) or original wiikeys may be become corrupt, then with the addition of the wii's 3.x firmware, booting even a standard gcos disc is impossible, and a workaround is required... hence the pre-boot discs.

    It didn't work [​IMG] It seems that as soon as I put a backup in the drive it stops reading, whereas it reads originals just fine. Is a Wii fitted with an original Wiikey supposed to run originals if the chip has gone bad?
