    GC2-D2B read dvd-r's?

    im looking to buy a second wii tonight, and i've searched here and google and cant find an answer.

    i need to know if this wii is softmoddable to read dvd-r's



    Your drive most likely has the following chipset:

    * There is a 75% chance the chipset is GC2-D2B with cut pins and missing third pad.
    * And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D2B (no cut pins or missing pad).



    i'll be going to buy it within 2-3 hours so if anyone can tell me quick i would really appriate it

    If true, this will play burned discs yes. The drive modifications pertaining to either revision above is more a counter-hardmod tactic employed by Nintendo.

    D3-2 or D4 won't play via disc a la DVD-ROM. Keep in mind the website you checked is just an "educated guess," based on other user data submitted to it.

    I came across this after doing a search. I seem to be having some issues because i did softmod my wii using maui frogs "softmod any wii" guide. Im running 4.3u.. the serial starts with LU51 and my wii has one of these drive chips. However, this wii will not load any burned game..it doesn't show it in the disc channel when i put the disc in and ive tried to load it several times with Neogamma. I have another wii that i softmodded last may that loads all of the burned games that i am trying in this LU51 wii..the drive on that 1 is a GC2-DMS. I'm just trying to figure out why why this wii will not load backup games. If any1 could help me, that would be awesome!

    Sorry, but that is a pretty vague question. Not much to go on there....
