had a good look round for an answer to your problem but found next to note, thing i did see was alot of ppl moaning about faluty drivekeys and the genral answer they got was that an early batch of drive keys put on sale were faulty, so i would say test all 5 on the wii that would play backups first to test its not the key its self.

one other thing, why not just soft mod the wii's? costs next to nothing and ouite easy to do.

thought about soft mod, but abit thick , dont want to brick it as its ma step daughters and ma mate' that r no working but i will try the other chips in a wii that worked n c what the result iz , have heard that the keys where faulty but to get 3 out of 5 iz a bit unusual but not imposible so thanx for the input , cheerz sam

well if you do go for the softmod option make sure you install Bootmii, Preloader, and Indiana Pwns.
Make a nand backup, and keep a copy of your nand and keys in a safe place.
Trucha patch your system ios
Remove stubbed ios versions

These will help you recover from bricks should it happen, tho i never bricked one yet and i try just about anything with mine lol.

as well as that theirs loads of ppl who will help you out here.
