    Hey, I have just recently received 2 wiikey sd's and I can't seem to get them to work.
    I have formatted my SD card and put the padding file on it but everytime I load it o the wii, it says there is an error.
    BTW I'm usig the wiikey 1.3 config disk.
    Can anyone link me to a step by step guide into dvddumping?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Edit: Please help me I've tried and tried.
    I have a Wiikey installed on my wii incase it matters.

    On my 1gb sd card it makes a padded file thats 900+ is that normal?

    Here it is wiikey sd
    Same thing as all the other sd adapters I guess. But for some reason it's not working for me.

    I got one from them (received 2 day ago).... haven't test it yet (same people who made wiikey modchip)

    However I read somewhere you need a good SD capacity above 2GB
    if you planning to dump game.




    pitoui the wiikey config 1.3 disc have a 'readme' tell you how to dump...


    wiiKey DVDDump v0.8
    =====================================================


    Requirements:
    ------------------
    - gamecube SD Adapter (gecko or selfmade)
    - SDCard

    Most cards other than sdhc should work. We tested various cards from 512mb
    to 2gb. There may be some non-sdhc 4gb cards, but we didnt have one to test
    with. Cards smaller than 512mb should work, but are not recommended as they
    will require too much swapping.


    Note:
    -------------------
    Running dumptool.exe requires administrator privilege. Please login as an
    administrator or member of the administrator group.


    Setup:
    -------------------
    Before using your sdcard for the first time, you need to format it using
    our tool. To do this simply run:

    dumptool [driveletter] -c

    This will format the card to fat16 and allocate space for the dumpfile.
    It will use all but 10Mb of the available space, in case you want to put
    some other applictions on there as well.


    Dumping:
    --------------------------
    Depending on the size of your card the dumper will split up the image to
    multiple chunks. Once a single chunk has been dumped, you must download it
    to your computer using dumptool.exe.

    There are two methods for downloading the chunks to your pc. Using the
    option -sd will store the data into a single image file called discimage.iso.
    This is the recommended way, because you dont have to join the parts after
    dumping.

    dumptool [driveletter] -sd

    will get the current chunk from the card and append it to the image file
    discimage.iso

    Alternatively using the option -d will create a single file for each chunk
    ie. 00.rvl 01.rvl etc. You have join the parts manually when using this method.

    DO *NOT* use multiple cards when dumping a single disc, it will result in bad dumps!

    A complete image of a gamecube disc should be exactly 1459978240 bytes
    in size. The correct size for a wii disc image is 4699979776 bytes.



    Using the batch files:
    --------------------------
    If commandlines scare you, you can also use the provided batch files
    formatSD.bat and dump.bat.

    Hmm now the wiikey 1.3 disc isn't reading. It has some sort of read error when I place it in the wii. How the hell did that happen all of a sudden.I've tried heaps of times but same problem. Iv'e put in wii backup games to see if it were my chip but they work fine.

    EDIT: I got wiinja gcos disc and the wiikey 1.3 config runs fine from that..

    Still an error finding the sd card on the wii though.

    EDIT 2: Got it working, had to put a piece of paper under the pcb that connects to the GC memory port.

    Cheers guys
