    It's not required. If you want to change region free settings or disc speed settings, it is though.

    What exactly is the purpose of changing the disc speed anyways? I don't see a difference between 3x and 6x.

    Is there any confirmation on the possibility of loading the config disc using GCOS?

    Yes, you can play backups without the config disc. You can also use the config disc with the help of GCOS.

    Good Question posted but yet answered.....

    Indeed, i'm getting a Wiikey tomorrow, and i have Zero knowledge about these things as well.

    After i have my Wiikey, what do i need? like Software and stuff. Can anyone link me to a newbies guide or such?

    Thanks!

    That's not what 3x on the config disc means. It has nothing to do with what speed you burnt your disc at. You can set your Wii's dvd drive to either 3x or the default 6x. At 6x games loader faster but the dvd drive makes more noise. At 3x the games load slower but the drive makes less noise. What speed you burnt your discs at have no effect what so ever on the read times.

    In my opinion there really is no need to change the speed to anything but 6x.
