What is a nunchuck

It's for the Nintendo Wii. The Nunchuk connects to the Wii Remote making the remote a two handed control.

I have a Pelican dance pad compatible with Gamecube/XBox/Playstation DDR games. Plugging into port 1 of the GC Port on my Wii, I can play DDR Hottest Party 1/2/3 with no problems in any mode, but it...

me too. i get this problem . i have a wii dance pad that has a gamecube connector , and i guess the DDR doesn't detect it as a dance pad , but as a gamecube controller . so think , you can't hold the nunchuck and the gamecube controller at the same time . so i guess we need a wireless dance pad for the nunchuck to work as well .

Do you need to use remote with dance pad. I have a bad shoulder

Yes. You need to use the Wii remote and the Nunchuck with the dance pad.

New to the wii. I just put in the Avatar game and it locks up saying I need a nunchuk (P1 nunchuk is required). I've replaced the batteries to my nunchuk and restarted? help?

Hi there, the nunchuck is actually a separate controller that is needed. It is plugged into the end of the standard Wii remote with a cable. The nunchuck does not require batteries so I am guessing you are getting confused between the nunchuck and the Wiimote. Please look at this photo to see what I mean about a nunchuck.


You should have been supplied one with your Wii, if not, they are available very cheaply off of places like ebay.

Hope this helps

When I go to pick a song it speeds past them really fast and doesn't pause on each song so I can choose one. It's like a roulette wheel.

Make sure nothing is on the arrows on the DDR pad. Also make sure you're not holding the arrows on the Wii remote or the control stick on the Nunchuck.

If nothing is being held down on the DDR pad, Wii remote, and Nunchuck, and this problem still occurs, there might be something wrong with something.

My wii nunchuk controller has a loose joystick and I need to tignten it. How do I do it?

The problem is that the copper connectors on the nunchuck are slowly bent flatter. Take a small needle and place in the holes behind each of the five connectors and force them closer by pushing the needle against the back of the connector. You should feel a tighter nunchuck when plugged in to the remote. Good luck.

When it gets to the screen to choose the mode, the choices fly by way too fast to choose. This happens with other windows that require a choice.

Make sure nothing is on the DDR Controller arrows. Also make sure you haven't moved the control stick on the Nunchuck when starting the game. If you accidently move the control stick on the Nunchuck, press and hold A, B, +, and - buttons on the Wii remote simultaneously for 3 seconds.
If nothing is on the arrows, and you haven't moved the Nunchuck control stick and this problem still occurs, something might not be working properly.

Wii keeps asking me to connect a nunchuck even though one is connected.

Hardware problem in nunchuck, try repairing it or buy the new Wireless Nunchuck, much more easier to play...
