Hi, I am brand new to the wii and have been installing a system that I bought on ebay (used). It comes with a konami dance controller and the game DDR Hottest Party 2.

I have the controller plugged in and the buttons seem to work fine to select options - I have used the up, down and A buttons on the mat just fine when selecting options. But when I dance, it doesn't recognize me stepping on the arrows at all. I have played once or twice before so I don't think it is that I am just missing the rhythm! Any idea why this might be happening?

thanks!
