    i have a fairly new wii serial LU315... picked it up less than a week ago. nonetheless i had it modded with the wiikey and it tested with verbatim dvd-r and it worked

    when i took it home and tried a couple of my own backups they did not - i tried burning on verbatim dvd-r, memorex dvd-r, and dataware dvd-r at burning at 2x on imgbrn

    i got one verbatim to work once, then i tried it again but it wouldnt load to the game although it did show me the nice animation on the dashboard so it was reading it. when i tried it a thrid time, i got the same error as all the others 'unable to read the disc, check the operations manual'

    subsequent tries led to the same error (for all backups)

    any suggestions would be great, tia

    i must add that i did try powering off the wii and unplugging the power for a few minutes to reset the chipset - but no luck. and i do believe that nintendo is systematically remembering which media not to read.

    anyway if you have any other suggestions please advise

    thanks in advance

    same thing happened with me, and this is what i was told, and now mine works almost perfectly (occasional DRE, but i just turn it off, eject the disc and turn it back on a few minutes later and all is good)

    make sure there is electrical tape on the back side of the wiikey, then after soldering, put electrical tape over the top and the wiikey and solder points, and on the solder points on the actual wii drive....also make sure the wire you're using isn't bad or faulty (if you did the wire install)

    after i did that, it worked fine and haven't had a real problem since

    i installed mine using a wire install though, if you used quicksolder, i'm not sure if you can put electrical tape on the back of the wiikey (i would assume you can, just cut out holes so you can solder), but make sure you have tape over all solder joints

    i bought mine a couple months ago, but the serial doesn't matter because as long as you can mod it with the wiikey (or any other chip), then it should work just fine

    what is wrong is something you did or didn't do during the soldering process

    go back and try what i suggested
