Updating the wiikey

6854933580_2c8b688306_z

My chip installation is fine and the firmware update went without a hitch (as did 1.9b some time ago). – Yes Percentage of Backups that load – 0% (all show as unknown, the disc just stops spinning. Press the Eject Button and remove the disc.” error) Originals load? – Yes, does nothing Tried Config/Update Discs/GCOS boot?So, if you have a similar problem, post your experience here! Description – A couple of days after updating to 1.9g and playing SMG (Euro version on Euro console), all backups stopped to work. I think it might have happened when the Wii was disconnected from the mains (not 100% sure). – Yes, none will get recognized, same as all backups Media Tried – Sony /-R, Verbatim -R, Fujifilm -R, Imation R, TDK -R, @2x and 4x Burner(s) – Nero, Imgburn Black Magic – Tried: Taking out CMOS battery and unplug off mains for a while, formatting Wii system memory I’d also like to see a description of what happens when you use the recovery disc successfully.

The problems seem to happen with any kind of media, be it backup or orignal. What you should (and in the case of clones have to) do though, is use the "Setup Disc Images v1.3" (available via download) to configure your chip to play games in the right video format etc.

Applies to: Wiikey Fusion Error 002 means the Wii system needs to be updated.

Please do not run games you do not own and obey your country's laws.

As of around January 07, 2013, the Wiikey Fusion website appears to have been taken down and official production stopped.

Some websites continue to sell a 3rd party clone of the Wiikey Fusion which has been tested and confirmed fully compatible as a drive replacement device for use with the Gamecube.

The Wiikey team has promised to release an updated version of the disc in the near future. For the moment there seems to be no problem updating to Nintendo's Wii firmware 4.2 (using the safe updater in case you use Homebrew apps/channels) if you have a Wiikey installed.
