    How to tell if my Wii can play burnt discs?

    Hey guys, I'm just wondering how I can tell if my Wii can play burnt discs (It's a white one, fairly old) I remember there being some way to tell with Neogamma by inserting a disc, but I forget what it's supposed to say if you can/can't.

    Any help is appreciated!

    It will give an error code like 1107 or similar. There Is a data base to check but I am not at my computer right now to link it. Really though you should be looking to USB load

    I forgot to mention it was for GC games, I do play all my Wii games from an external HD.

    I also found that my Wii chip is from 2006.

    Type your Wii's serial number here-->Wii Drive Chip Database
    then report back here and we'll tell you if it can play backups.

    • There is a 100% chance the chipset is GC2-D2E.

    Yes, that drive can read backups.
    Just an FYI. It's possible to play Gamecube
    games from an SD card now. Look here-->http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...ite-guide.html

    bmarlo, or anyone else that could possibly help.

    I am looking to "Jailbreak" or whatever my Wii.
    I don't have a Wii, and I was wondering if this one would accept GC Disc and Burnt Disc.
    I know that you can now play games via External HDD and SD but, just incase I wanted some on the road, I wouldn't have to lug around my external HDD.

    Any and all help would be appreciated.

    Also, to whomever answers I do have a few more questions about the whole Wii thing, I'm pretty new at this, so if you don't mind me sending you a message so you can help me more, I'd really appreciate it!
    The SN is - LU157654941
    The console has model number RVL-001(USA), produced for USA/Canada/Mexico.
    • There is a 50% chance the chipset is GC2-DMS.
    • And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2R-D2A.
    • Lastly, a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip.
