Hi!

I am trying to use a NYKO Wiimote Wand with an interactive whiteboard that has functioned with official wiimotes, and one other 3rd party brand in the past. However, this one wil not work.

I have tested it with:
WiimoteWhiteboard (Old version, the one currently available off this site hasn't worked for me in the past).
Wii Smoothboard
Wii Smoothboard 2
Java Whiteboard


None of these programs would recognize the device.

So is it a dud? I read somewhere it needs a passcode, but is there a way I can bypass that? No one, even NYKO, seems to have it. Any help is appreciated!

Hi,

It is recommended to just use the original Wiimote from Nintento which will save you a lot of trouble trying out. Even if the device can be connected to the computer, the quality and reliability of the device may be not consistent.

We have tested using NYKO brand and didn't have issues connecting to wiimotewhiteboard or smoothboardv1.x and DIDN'T require a passcode.
However, we found that it did an unacceptable job compared to the nintendo brand considering it only saved 5-7 dollars.
If you were able to connect using the nintendo, then ditch the NYKO...

hey could you tell me how u connected the nyko wiimote to ur pc

I have a rocketfish dongle and windows 7 with bluesoleil drivers. When I choose connect to device, the led's on my wiimote stay lit for lik 3 secs and then go off. The bluesoleil window still says connected for about ten more seconds and then it says disconnected. I get the same result everytime I try it. There's also another post about this problem but noone posted a solution.

If u've  used Nyko then u've certainly come across this problem. Please tell how u got past it
