I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly, but I used the setup disc and I changed the force region setting to "On" and then I clicked "Save Settings" afterward I would reboot my Wii and check the settings and it goes back to "Off" Wii backups are working fine. I just installed the Wiikey yesterday. By the way, I don't have a SD card either. Any ideas? I'm quite sure my solder connections were good before putting the Wii back together.
