I'd like to start out by saying that i'm new to these forums. I've done a search on google and the forums but I haven't found any information on this specific problem yet. Sorry if this has been answered before... I have a u.s. wii with a wiikey modchip installed and it's been working fine so far to play backups. I recently tried enabling the chip's region-override feature via version 1.2 of the setup disc, saving the settings, and rebooting the wii. Once I do this, any time I load a disc- either ntsc-u or ntsc-j, the wii just tries to load the disc forever and nothing happens. It doesn't report the disc as unreadable or anything... it just shows that image of the spinning wii and gamecube disc indefinitely. If I turn region override back off, everything works fine again. Is there anyone who has seen this before or has an idea of something i've done wrong earlier in the process? The discs are ntsc-j images burned the same way I've burned all my ntsc-u discs- using imgburn.exe and memorex dvd-r's which have all worked fine for me so far. I know there are some other options like patching via software which I might try as well if I can't get this solved (in that case I wouldn't need the region override feature because it effectively makes the disc ntsc-u, correct?) I appreciate any help/info you can give me, thanks!
