    Wii Drive Board Inquiry

    Maybe this can help others who are wondering about doing what I am wondering if I can do:
    I have a Wii that has a new D3-2 Drive Board. I am wondering if I replace the drive board with this:
    Wii Drive Replacement Boards (PCB) - DMS/D2A/D2B/D2C - Modchip Central Ltd
    Will it work?
    Will I have to SoftMod again?
    Will I have to Install all my WADs again?
    Big Question: Brick????
    Wanting to get a different board in order to run GC Homebrew from disk also to load NeoCD Redux. Cant seem to run the MIOSpatching WAD Installer. Keeps saying it is not a Wii program. I ran the install instructions for the Emu but this is the only one I can not run.
    Soft Modded Wii 4.2U FW
    As stated above, have the dreaded D3-2 Drive Chip.
    I didn't do it!!!! I swear!!!!!
    But if I did, I was justified!!!!

    Yes, It will work.
    No you won't have to softmod again
    No wads
    No brick

    Kind of expensive though. You can get an entire new drive for that price on eBay.

    Sweet. Didint think about Ebay. Was looking around on the ModChip sites and saw how much they were asking for just the Boards. Ebay has one that is good. Can a Board with the Epoxy run GC homebrew? Just softmodded?

    The epoxy is just to make it more difficult to install a mod-chip. Installing a D2 drive will allow the wii to play backup disks however, I'm not too knowledgeable in GC Homebrew. Maybe someone else here can answer that for you. I think your system menu is also a factor if I'm not mistaken.

    OK. Thank you very much for your info. Hopefully someone can assist more in this area. Would love to play NeoCD Redux if I can. Just sucks that I cant get it working due to MIOSPatchingWADInstaller working.
    If I can get pictures of the whole problem, would I be able to load up more then 1 picture? Just so anyone who can help can figure out what the problem is? Maybe need to put up a CIOS, a IOS or something?
