    Hi all, this is my first post. Firdt of all I would like to say thank you for the wealth of information on this forum.

    My Question:-
    I have installed a genuine Wii Key. Original discs still work fine but I can not get any other media to work. I have burnt the wii key configurator on both Verbatim + and - disks at speeds of 2 - 4 - 8
    using Nero and various othe programs. I have also tried downloading the image again and I have checked the byte size is correct. No matter what I try I keep getting "Unable to read the disk"

    I am wondering if the wii key is working. Is there a way to test if the key is working. Has any one else experianced this issue?

    Thank you in advance

    CapDan

    Sounds like a bad soldering job. You tried to burn the file with ImgBurn correct?

    Thank you for your reply,
    Yes I tried Imgburn too. Also tried copying from my liton drive and my sony drive within my laptop with various combinations. I have been starting to think the same thing. The only thing I was thinking is that if it was not soldered correctly wouldn't I have other problems? not sute as this is the first Wii that I have done.

    I think it may be worth a resolder

    Thanks again Capdan

    I had the same problem. Checked my connections with a multi meter and they were fine. Resoldered just in case and STILL had the problem reading the set up disk. On a whim I tossed in a burned game and it worked!

    So your chip and installation might be ok and it's a matter of not reading the DVD setup disk.

    Any tips on getting the disk to work from anyone else?

    Have you bought 1 of the newer Wii Systems with the IC legs cut off from the Panasonic Chip?

    Here is an image.

    If so you will need to do a little modification to the Panasonic Chip to solder the wires to those cut legs.

    Here is another discussion link on these types of newer boards.

    Here is a link to images of the modification of the Panasonic Chip.
