    Dont have a gamecube controller. Any idea on how to load the config disc, with the latest wii firmware, and the latest beta from wiikey?

    doesn't the reset button work?

    otherwise just get a GC controller clone off ebay - hardly cost much!

    When I boot up with the config disk, I get the "hit A" normal bootup on the wii, then I enter the wii main menu. If I click on the GC disk from the main menu, and hit start, says unable to read disc.

    It has to be the 1.3 config disc if you have the newer Wii firmware.
    Have you tried burning it multiple times? Might be crappy disc or burner.
    You've given us just about no info, how about your current Wiikey firmware? DVD brand?

    1. Download 1.2 config from wiikey site.

    2. Create your image with the correct region batch file.

    3. Burn the image to DVD-R.

    4. Hex edit the ISO (on harddrive) with HxDen (or other hexeditor)

    as per this http://psx-scene.com/forums/attachments/wi...pg?d=1186782217

    5. Save the edited ISO and burn it to DVD-R

    6. Boot with the hexedited 1.2 disk.

    7. You will see a screen asking for the correct 1.2 disk.

    8. Swap for untouched 1.2 disk and press reset button.

    9. Once 1.2 has loaded set the region override to "ON"

    10. Save the settings and reboot the Wii.

    11. Config/update discs untouched will now boot, remember to have 'region overide' always on, or you will have to use the swap disc method again.

    after you can update to 1.9g wiikey firmware then use the 1.3 config disc.

    edit..fixed link

    Hi I'm having a similar problem. I installed my WiiKey but it doesn't read any backup discs or config discs, but it will read originals.
    My Wii is NTSC 3.1U
    I used a multimeter to check for continuity from the WiiKey IC legs to the Drive IC. Continuity is good.
    I also checked for bridging between my solder points, there are none.
    I've tried TDK DVD+R and Verbatim 16X DVD-R burned at 2X and 4X
    I've also tried 1.0 1.1 1.2 config discs and 1.9b and g firmware discs and 1.9b recover disc.
    My Wii doesn't recognize any of these discs.
    I used filechop to expand the iso to 1.35 GB
    the batch file included in the Setup disc 1.2 Universal PALUSAJAP creates a 4.37GB file I've tried both sizes using Nero and ImgBurn.
    I also tried burning a hexed version.

    What am I doing wrong please help? thank you.

    here are pictures of my install, I've verified that all my wires go to the right places too.

    I’m have the same issue as adorerai, My Wii still only loads original Wii discs not burns
    I received my WiiKey last week and installed it yesterday using the wire method
    I checked the continuity with a multimeter
    I tried TDK, ridata, and verbatim DVD+R at 2x, 4x, 6x using a Pioneer and LITEON
    I have tried the 1.1, 1.2, 1.2 w/HEX edit, 1.3 config discs, 1.9b update, and 4 US backed-up games none load
    I also removed the WiiKey and re-soldered using the quick solder method
    I am good at soldering, and have also checked for solder bridges
    I am now wondering if I have a bad WiiKey, not sure of the chances of that?
    Any Suggestions?
