    I have the same problem. I can use the pad to select a game, but during game play the pad is useless. I can, however, use the Wii Remote to mimick the dance steps.

    Just got DDR for Wii.. the problem is that once the game starts the pad does not recognize any movements. The pad works fine for setting up the game and recognizes movement and selections.

    I bought a second pad and had the same issue. Both Konami!

    Same problem. It works as a controller, but the game does not. In Slot 1 it does not work, but works on the other 3.

    The mat seems to work fine to move through the screens, but does not work during a dance song.

Are you either using konami mat or game cube mat? If you're using game cube mat, then make sure you're putting it in the first player plug and konami, make sure it's player 1.

Otherwise, your mat is bad and you should call the company to get a refund!

I had the same problem and found the solution: plug it in the first slot (closer to power switch) so that the mat gets linked to the first player^^ (took me a while though...)

Hello, I bought two of the wii dance dance revolution pad controllers and they didn't come with the instruction manuals. I plugged them into my wii and I'm getting nothing. What am I doing wrong?? They...

They are more than likely in the wrong slots. The first two slots to the right are the fourth and third controlers. Simply alternate the slots for a working of the pad. Also as a reminder, try not leaving the "nun-chuck" in the Wii remote, while playing.

The DDR pad works until it's time to start

The unit must be plugged into the player's one socket. The socket is the one closest to the power button on the wii console.

Howcome my Wii DDR Hottest Party 2 mat doesn't work? It works when I tap it in choosing songs/options/etc, but it does not work at all when I'm stepping on it during the game/song! Please help!!

It must be plugged into player one for single play. Plug it into the slot that is closest to the power button. (i.e. it will have one dot under the connector to indicate player one.)
