Hi will try to cach Mega on IRC unil now I havent had luck.

But I have get my Wiikey fusion back to life. And I got swiss working on it. But when I want to start a disk with swiss it says every time "no disk/disk changed" What can I do to get my disk working.

Does somebody have an idea until I am waiting in IRC for Mega?

I have found the issue on my gamecube. It wasnt my solder skills neither the connections or cables. The problem was that die adapter of mega has had a bad solderpoint. Pin 1 wasnt soldered to the board.
I have soltered on and now everything works without problems.

This pin of the ffc connector wasnt connected to the board. I have resoldered it and now it works everything. 2 years and 2 cubes and now its such a simple thing.
