    I received 4 of these boards and was wondering what chipset is on it. I'm hoping its not the d2 nothing chipset. Any help is appreciated

    Try reading the small drive chip.

    I think it might be a DC2-D3 which can play backups.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    There are no markings on any of the chips identifying what chip it is.

    Identical to my D3-2 pcb layout-wise along with no markings... I just grabbed it off my filing cabinet to compare (did a drive swapout when bought).

    well if these boards are D3-2s they won't be seeing any use any time soon. My wii has a drivekey and softmod. No use keeping them if I can't use my backups

    I just checked all the boards. All 5 are D3-2. I'll keep them for repair use only on non-modded wii units.

    It must be. I can't believe that I got 5 boards with that chipset
