    There is a new DVD drive chipset that is starting to emerge that will not play DVDR, if your Wii came with sys menu 4.0 on it then it could be one, the chipset is known as a D3-2 and the only way of telling if you have one is to open her up, but as this will invalidate your warranty you are better off trying to load DVDRs and if you just keep getting errors then it is a good indication that you have one.

    serial numbers above LEH2676XXXX will probably have it. You can still softmod and use USB loaders

    Hi and welcome to WiiHacks arve28

    If you need advice or help for anything Wii related you have joined the right site, whether its hard or soft modded.

    Don’t be shy, ask if you are stuck, just don’t expect other people to do all the work for you.

    Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.

    Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums.

    Here is a site index site index written by ShadowSonic2

    If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs

    If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs

    Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie

    I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.

    Thanks alot.

    what kind of soft modding can i do? Is this a 4.2 or who can i find out this?

    Will a software mod be better than hardware? Can softmod be done back to orginal?

    With hardware mod i can't use DVD-R rather?

    But a USB loader is ok for me.

    Its probably 4.1, maybe 4.2, swith it on, data management, settings, top right of screen.

    Hardware mod is simpler, some people have both, back to original if its 4.1 yes.

    As yours will probably have a D3-2 chip, you will have to use usb loaders.
    New hard mod chips will over come these D3-2.

    Tanks again.

    Looks like the version is 4.0E
    What can the WII do other than play games?
    SD card with picture is working.
    But i try to put in a orginal movie. Can the CD player only play WII games?

    Can the software mod go wrong or can i Always go back to the orginal?

    If you fit a USB HDD you can watch movies. It has an internet channel,
    many other features.

    To use usb HDD you will need to softmod.
    Checkout the marketplace forum for hard mod options.

    The new device coming out is Wode, there is a thread on that.
