    The tut on soldering is good, but I have to say its an SMD chip and you are soldering 0.5mm pins and trying not to solder 2 pins together. If you overheat you might take the track off the board. I...

    Well I still think the only choices are between Wasabi and D2Pro - the epoxy is a no brainer and will only stop the DIY and Wii-clip modders.
    For a pro modder - it just adds 5 minutes, as you dont...

    Its hard to say, I do not know the range of serial numbers when the epoxy was added. Worst case is you cant use the clip and you need to solder the d2pro - if you are not happy doing it - then dont...

    It really looks like a read problem - if your chip is up to date firmware wise.
    It could be a combination of a bad write - maybe your writer has a weak laser ?
