[Wii] How to detect if your wii can read backup discs

3 posts in this topic

this is not mine i did not write it nor do i take any credit for it however i was asked to get this for a member of our site so here it is:

Steps to find out if your Wii is one of the d3-2 drives:

- Google "Wii Drive Chip Database" and click on the first search result

- Enter the serial number from the bottom of your Wii and if you have the d3-2, it will say: "There is a XX% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip."

From what I've read, the only way you will ever be able to play a burned DVD on these Wiis is:

- replace the DVD drive with an older one

- use a newer gen hardmod, such as wiikey fusion, sundriver or WODE

- use a USB HD for backups

- THERE IS NO SOFTMOD SOLUTION TO MAKE THESE READ DVD DISCS

Other News and Warnings:

- From what I've heard ALL new Black Wiis contain this chip and are unable to read any discs other than Nintendo retail discs

- If you send your Wii in for repairs, especially if your issue involves the disc drive, there is a very good chance they will replace your old drive with one of these new D3-2 ones

From troy512:

UPDATE: I WOULD LIKE TO PUT TOGETHER A LIST OF D3-2 SERIALS AND THE POSSIBLE ERROR CODES.

IF YOUR WII DOES CONTAIN OR YOU BELIEVE YOUR WII MAY CONTAIN THE GC2-D3-2 CHIPSET,

PLEASE POST THE FIRST 6 OR 7 DIGITS OF YOUR SERIAL NUMBER AND THE ERROR CODE YOU GET WHEN TRYING TO PLAY A GAME FROM DVD-R.

There will never be a softmod fix for these drives. ITS PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO READ DVD±R DISCS!

If your Serial Number is higher than these you may have a D3-2 drive:
