hi I have read some threads already and felt I needed to add a new thread as i felt my problem with the wiid has not been addressed. I installed the wiid about a week ago in my PAL console. Backups of Exite Truck, Warioware smooth moves and Heatseeker works fine... all pal versions. No I wanted to test a NTSC game so I read the compatability list and got a "Need for speed Carbon" and a"Trauma Center" disc burnt. That did not work so I figured I'll put on the v02 firmware. Followed the instructions, bunt DVD+R with Nero 6... got the "Unable to read disc" message... turn the console of and then on... the NTSC game did not work. "Unable to read disc". Tried again and made sure I checked the "Finalize" checkbox... same result. Tried again using DVD-R... same result. Verified that my language is set to English... same result. Tried again using Fuljufilm DVD-RW media... same result Tried again extracting the dummy.bin from the ISo and burnt... samt result My Original and backups of PAL disc still work fine so I asume the chip is properly installed and is not broken. Does the WiiConnect24 affect anything? Any ideas?
