    I believe my wiikey install was successful, I had no troubles loading the wiikey setup disc version 1.2. I have about a dozen wii backups but none of them will load. When I pop them in the game splash screen is displayed, but when I click start the games always display a message like

    "The Game Disc could not be read. Please read the Wii Operations Manual for more information."

    I've tried many different brands of blank dvds, tried burning at different speeds, and tried dvd+r as well as dvd-r. If I turn off the region fix, the game splash screen doesn't even display and I just see an error that the disc can't be read. I've tried setting the disc speed to both 3x and 6x but to no avail. Does anybody have any ideas? Do you think I'll have better luck with a different burner? Is there some other option I could try?

    Your help is much appreciated!

    Use a different burner.If you can, have a friend with a different burner burn you a game and see if that fixes it before you go and buy a new burner.

    The firmware of my burner? Are you serious?

    I just tried burning a few games on a different burner, the one in my laptop, but I'm still getting the same problem. I ordered that pioneer burner that everybody is saying works like a charm and should be getting it this week.

    But is there a possibility that its not the burner or media? After trying many different brands and 2 different burners, I'm suspecting something must be wrong. Is there any way to play backups besides using writable dvds? Has anyone written any software to load ISOs from an external hard drive or anything?

    Many thanks,
    Sean

    i had same problems as you but dont have them anymore

    i have wiikey and my burner is the pioneer 108

    i updated the firmware from 1.14 to 1.20 on my burner as this updates the info for the drive on the newer discs

    i then bought some maxell 16x dvd -r dvds at £12 for 100

    upto now i have only burnt at 4x

    since then i have had 100% success

    I'm still having the same problem.

    I have my new burner now, the Pioneer DVR-111D, which is what I've seen other people using. I updated the firmware to the most recent version. I burned on a Verbatim 16x DVD-R blank disc at 4x speed. When I popped the game into my Wii, I saw the spash screen page but then when I clicked Start it simply said the disc could not be read.

    Help please!!!

    try burning at 2x/2.4x
    if that doesnt work it could be the isos.
