    So...

    I got fed up trying to learn to solder, so I just ordered a presoldered WiiKey + WiiClip. I put it on, and it seemed to work great. I took some tape and made sure it was thoroughly in place, then put my Wii all back together.

    Here's the problem. I burned the newest update disc (1.9s), and it shows up as a GameCube game. I try to run it, it just flashes black and I see a Health and Safety screen again. The config disc just says "Disc error" and refuses to run. I tried it in Gecko OS and it said there was no disc. (I do have 3.2U so I can use Trucha stuff.)

    Initially, it would read some older legit games such as Twilight Princess, and also my DVD+R backups of TP, etc. But I put in my legit disc of Brawl and it made weird noises and said it couldn't read it.

    I found an older config disc sitting around, and that DID load. It said "1.9X", but seeing as how S comes before X, I think that was a generic term used for the updates. Am I right?
    So now it loads Brawl just fine.

    However, my new backups still don't work. I have Sonic Unleashed, Boom Blox, etc... it just says the disc is unreadable. I did try Wii Play and it works great.

    Do these games require a new update? Or maybe the ones I downloaded were "region free"? I heard the WiiKey doesn't work with region free games, that could be it. Maybe I'll try using the ISO dumper on those games.

    Does anyone know? Why the new update/config discs don't work? It's not possible I have a bad modchip, is it?

    Try different media. 1.9X is 1.9s when it was in beta.

    I used Verbatim DVD+R, burned at 6x...

    Is there anything better? I can try another Verbatim... but I don't have any other media.

    So is there a difference between 1.9X and 1.9s, functionality-wise? I'm curious why my new backups won't work, and I think maybe I got the "region free" versions that only work with loaders.

    Yeah.

    I'm no n00b when it comes to burning... both the 1.9X and 1.9S update discs are bitset to DVD-ROM.

    Just a question, will the WiiKey work with DVD+RW? Because that might save on me wasting discs... How do I find out if a game is region free? Would I try booting it with a soft-chip and see what happens?

    I just copied Sonic Unleashed using nitrotux's ISO dumper, and it too doesn't work.

    I put the disc in and nothing shows up except "The disc is not readable".

    Is there some reason that particular game won't work with my WiiKey?
