I've been scouring forums for some answers for hours and have found nothing. Im sure this is covered somewhere, but I cant find it. So please, no flaming. I installed a WiiKey (its legit, not a clone), booted up a GameCube original to test, and it works fine. I tested again with a launch Wii game (Elebits), and it works fine as well. But when I tryed SMG and RE:UC (all original copies -- not backups, neither would be read. They show everything when I put it in, the appear in the disc channel, but they wont boot, the drive starts spinning and then stops and it says an error. I figured it was because I had not upgraded the WiiKey to the 1.9g firmware yet. So I tried that. I booted up the update disc in GCOS, and it said that the update went successfully after following all the prompts. So I rebooted and I tried both games again, and they still wont work (same error messages saying that there are errors reading the discs) but the other games I originally tested still play. I also tried booting the WiiKey config disc (multiple versions on different media) to see that the FW update went fine, but I get a static black screen error saying to eject disc and reboot console every time, though the disc keeps spinning (I left it for a few minutes and it kept going...). I looked at my installation, I am 99% sure thats not the problem and that nothing is wrong with it. Could it be the fact that I installed the modchip after having my console fully updated by the SMG disc? I have already applied the update, from an original NTSC-U disc back at launch and before I had applied any mods. Could this be the problem? And if so, how do I resolve it? I searched for a long time for threads regarding updating the wiikey AFTER doing a full SMG update. I know they are there, but I could not find them. Any help is appreciated!
