Replace d3-2 with d2(a,b,c)
I am fairly new here. Have modded a few wiis but obviously have shown up very late to the scene. My wii has the d3-2 Drive and now also does my Parents. My local walmart has been selling the older D2XX drives for a while but with the pre holiday rush they quickly went from LU36XX serials to LU72XX serials. Unfortounatly I bought mine at Gamestop in early november and recieved my LU72XX. I use USB Loader GX and Configurable USB Loader with a WD My Book Esentials 1TB drive with no problems. My parents on the other hand are not very Technoligicaly Advanced.
My question is can I buy a D2 (A,B,C) drive and swap them out or are they forced to use a USB Loader. I've searched and was unable to come up with a conclusive result.
And before anyone says return it and buy from flea bay. They want a brand new one with the 2 year extended warrenty through wally world. Plus we recieve a 10% discount due to my wife working there.
If it is absoulutly nessesary the USB Loader will work but with N not putting warrenty void stickers inside a drive replacement would be great for them with the ability to replace the drive if it would become unsuable.
Sorry about the long post but just wanted to make sure I explained everything to the fullest I couldand thank you all for your vast knowledge you have made available here on these great boards.
