    I have the same problem. can't believe it would be shorted out, just took it out of the box! I hope someone out there can help! thanks

    We have this EXACT problem. We took one back to the store and exchanged it for a new one. It does the same thing. The pad arrows work fine when setting up the game (except for character selection), but do not work in dance mode. Hand controllers work fine. Very frustrating! Any help would be appreciated.



    Thanks!

    We were given Dance Revolution Hottest Party 2 as a Christmas gift, but the sensor never picked up the signals from the mat. The hand controls worked fine. We bought another mat and the same thing happened.

Hi. I just had this problem myself. I called support. You need to make sure that the mat is plugged into the round outlet on the wii with the one dot above it, or the player 1 terminal. Otherwise, the mat will be read as a player 2 mat and it won't work when the songs play.

INTEC MATS ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH DDR 2 (unless otherwise specified). So play with DDR1 or return them to store.
but KONAMI ones should work if you got the DDR 2 mats.

If its DDR hottest party than maybe your mat shorted out. that happend to mine after only 3 uses. Also try plugging it in differently. Be sure to plug it in all the way. And if you do get it fixed step lightly on the mat. if you stomp on it that the wires inside could break and not be able to send the info to the system. or maybe thats what already happend. Did you drop it? Or did it have a lot of weight on top? all of these cause the mat to short out.

SOURCE: mat not working in dance mode

I had the same problem. It turned out that the documentation was wrong--the picture showing the four ports on the Wii to plug the mat into was upside down. I moved the cable from the leftmost port to the rightmost port, and presto, everything worked! I think by having it in the wrong port, it thinks it's a secondary controller and so it lets you operate the menus with it but not actually play...it's expecting you to hook up the primary controller to the first port.

You must have the DDR CD-Rom to play the game. Mats are sold separately without the disk to allow for multiplayer support. These units cannot be used by themselves without software.

How to hook up the dance pad to the wii? Where do you plug the mat in? Ther is no plug to match the mat.


If it is a wii dance pad the hook ups are on the top. They are round with one flat side. If you have a dance pad that is supposed to go to the wii or xbox you are going to have to conact them and get an adapter. There should be a 1-800 number on the box.

If you are trying to use it with DDR 2 for the Wii you need to use the enclosed adapter.  It's in a small plastic bag.  :)

Mat not working in dance mode


We found the solution on another post:
"Try making sure that the DDR mat is plugged into the FIRST controller jack (there are 4). That is the only way that it is associated with controller 1. If you plug it in any of the other controller jacks, you will be able to use the mat with instructions, configuration, etc., but not to dance. Hope this is your problem! -GeoffM"

Good luck! This worked for us!
