I bought The Legend of Zelda for Virtual Console and my problem is, that I can't select any item on the B button in the subscreen.

Of course I read the discription that says I should use the d-pad (I use the Wiimote) but it doesn't work.

I also tried a GameCube controller and it's the same effect. All other things works fine, but this doesn't work either.

Can anyone tell me how to select different items on B, please?

    To clarify, you've actually gotten an item you can use with <kbd>B</kbd>? A boomerang, a candle, a bomb or some such? – CyberSkull Aug 29 '12 at 7:11

    Yes I got the bow, but I couldn't select it :/ And I really don't know why, that's my problem. – Kairimina Aug 29 '12 at 16:56
  • So if you use the Wii remote, and use the "1" and "2" buttons for A and B, they do not work? CyberSkull already asked what my initial question was about to be. – leety Aug 29 '12 at 18:03
  • No they work, all in the game work fine, except for the select to use a different item on b (the 1 Button on the Wiimote) in the subscreen. I tried it, but I can't select it (with the d-pad, how the discription tell me), I can save the game, but I can't select an item – Kairimina Aug 29 '12 at 19:25

    Haha, okay I'm just stupid. Don't know that I only can use the Bow, when I have arrows... It works now. headdesk But thanks, for trying to help me :3 – Kairimina Aug 29 '12 at 21:24

As you're referring to your bow, you've probably just left the first dungeon, meaning you don't have any arrows. Without arrows, the bow is unequippable. Buy \ Find some arrows and you should be able to equip the bow to your B menu, alternatively, find another item you can equip (bombs, boomerang, etc).
