My Wii Has A Gc2-d1 Drive Chip?!
Posted 30 May 2008 - 03:32 AM
I chose WiiKey because I bought my console on release day, so figured it must be one of the early chipsets, and after typing my serial number (LEH103xxxxx) into the WiiTracker site, I was advised there was a "...33% chance that your drive chip is a GC2-D2B and a 67% chance that it is a GC2R-D2A."
However, AFTER soldering my modchip to my board and having my Wii work as normal but fail to load the WiiKey config disc, I checked my drive's chipset to find that it was a 'GC2-D1' chip.... probably something I should have checked before I whipped out the ol soldering iron, but there we go...
So does this drive chip mean my Wii is incompatible with the WiiKey chip? And if so, where do I go from here? What chip is compatible?
Xboxes and 360s have Wiis beat hands down in the modability category... :-)

Where did you get yours from?
And are the features comparable to the WiiKey?

Your wiikey should be fine, and should be a straight forward 6 wire install. Just recheck your soldering. Also, you may have issues with how you are burning the update disk.
Let me clarify. I installed a clone wiikey and it wouldn't work. Have done lots of Wiikeys. Checked with multimeter and everything was good. Even reinstalled 3-4 times because I still questioned my abilities. Here I got a Wasbi and popped it in an worked on first try.
