    Hi All,

    So I have just got a wii u pro controller to play wii games on my wii u.

    I can sync it fine but as soon as I go into wi mode to play a wii game it unsyncs and im unable to make it sync again, only the wiimote will sync, any ideas?

    thanks

    You can't play Wii games with a Wii U Pro Controller. A Wii U Pro Controller is a Controller for the Wii U (presumably intended for Pros). If you want a traditional-style controller for Wii games, you'll need a Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro.

    What did you expect? It's called a Wii U Pro Controller, not a Wii Pro Controller. It's not designed for Wii games.
    However in the future someone may be able to get this to work...

    You can play Wii games with the Wiimote by itself however (or with a nunchuck), there aren't many games where you would need a Classic Controller to play.
