    My suggestions, in this order: try changing the media. DVD-R works best; if you use DVD+R, make sure you enable bitsetting/booktyping to DVD-ROM for best compatibility. Second, check soldered points with a multimeter (set to resistance) and redo any questionable solder points (any ones that fail the tug test). I had the same problem and the latter suggestion did the trick.

    yea, is your wiikey genuine? or a clone? i installed a clone for a mate and his stopped playing originals, changed it and it worked ....

    if you remove the power from the wiikey (one of the 2 big solder pads)

    also make sure you dont have any shorts between any of the pads..
