    NeoGamma Most likely no DVD-Rs possible :-(

    Hello guys,

    Trying to softmod a Black Wii using this guide
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
    I've done it in the past with great success, but now I'm getting the following message on Neo-Gamma when trying to launch a game from the DVD
    Most likely no DVD-Rs possible :-(

    Was lurking through the forums and seems like my only option is going to be USB Loading, but wanted to make sure...

    According to Wii Drive Chip Database - Serial Number Estimation
    There is a 50% chance the chipset is GC2-D4 on a smaller drive board.
    And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2R-D2A.
    Lastly, a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D2C (v1).

    Does this mean without a doubt that I have to go with USB? I know people say 'always go with usb', it's better, etc... But again, just want to know if I won't be able to load from DVDs.

    Thanks!

    Yes I would say you are unable to play backup discs!

    I think all black Wiis are unable to play them!

    And take it from me,who is able to play backups!

    USB Loading kicks butt over backup discs!

    Any Wii made after Fall 2009 that can't play backups, so you are correct.

    Thanks for your reply, I know it'll cost money, but will it read backup copies?

    Will they ever play backups? I mean, is this something people are working on?

    Thanks

    Not backup discs, if that is what you mean. The only way would be for you to buy an old drive chip and replace the one you have. In the end that is just going to cost you more money than a simple hard drive.

    Edit: No, it won't be possible. The new drive chips just aren't capable of reading backup discs or DVD movies.

    Lol, just hook-up some sort of a usb storage device. Most flashdrives will work and there is a compatability reference guide for larger hdds andsome folks have even been able to use an ipod device. The main drawback is currently there are no options for gamecube backups, but most don't seem to care.

    Never quantify your life by comparison. It is always going to be apples to oranges. If you feel the need to always look down on others, you currently do not own enough mirrors------ Tommie Griffin.
