    didineedthis has the right idea though. That would be your best route.
    @Nexi am not pulling you up mate , am just saying this is how we do it , they can still solder them up in bulk if they wish , just soldering up for dms and d2c , i don't see why someone should buy a clip and then have to start cutting traces ,this makes people nervous, this is why we don't cut traces, we just solder the necessary point to suit the customers order ,as long as they state in checkout they have dms,d2a,or d2b there is no problem.

    I agree with you 100% . I'm quite puzzled as to why they wouldn't offer 2 different setups since the d2c setup won't work with the others. I'd imagine they must end up with a good amount of e-mails asking why the chip isn't working. A customer buying a solderless chip for their console shouldn't have to desolder or cut traces in order to get the chip to work. It should be plug and play right out of the box.

    exactly! I bought a solderless chip because I"m scared of soldering to the main board. When I bought it, I did put into the customer comments that I have a D2B. Obviously they didn't care much about that and sent what they had. on the techsick site it doesn't mention anything about giving them details of your machine .. and just says compatible with all Wiis.

    so for me, I just didn't read enough about it. I have sent them an email asking for their help but no response yet.

    I'm planning on cutting the tracks tonight to see how it goes.... if it doesn't work, I'm goign to have to solder the 5 wires.

    I just cut the C,D,E,F tracks of the clip and it just worked! stuck in a backup copy of bass fishing and just worked straight away! I was very surprised as it was just burnt at 16X on a imation DVD.

    So yes ... it does work by cutting them.

    Thanks so much to all for their help and advise. I'm a happy man tonight as I really wasn't expecting it to work so easily. Just very lucky not to have to solder anything.
