Thread: Wasabi V3 and Wii Clip V5B No Disk Recognition

  1. #1

    Us Wasabi V3 and Wii Clip V5B No Disk Recognition

    Hi All:
    I just installed a Solderless Wasabi Chip with Wii Clip V5B, I live in USA and the S/n of my machine is LU51421. The led lights are on and the drive works fine, it will only read originals and not back ups. It will say disk not recognized. I have read many threads about soldering jumpers and cables. This chip has a cable from F to Q points soldered and jumper 1 is soldered too. I have used Sony DVD-r disks and I can't get them to work. Anybody can get me hint or directions? I am thinking that the chip might be bad.
    Thanks In Advance;

    You didn't say what type of drive-chip you have .. and I'm too lazy to look it up if you can't post it here .. but the F to Q point on the V5B is the same as the F to F on the board.

    You'll also want to check for bent pins on your chip since you installed the wii-clip. I've had problems with the 2 pins on the opposite side of the wii-clip.

    Code:
    |----------\
    |          |-----|
    |          |     | <== this side
    |          |-----|

    Sorry for the bad picture .. but I already said I was lazy .. lol!

    Us Chip Drive Info

    Hi Chubbs:
    I was looking at the serial number compatibility tables and it is most likely I have a GC2R - D2B drive. Thanks for all you help, see if any of this info can help you to route me in the right direction. I will check the pins you mentioned later this afternoon and will let you know my findings. Thanks again for your time.

    Us Pins Are Looking Good

    Hi Chubbs:

    Just looked at the pins and they seem to look good. I was wondering, when I ordered the chip and clip bundle I did not specify the kind of drive I have. Could have they configured the chip for a D2C instead of a D2B? Do I have to make any changes?

    Thanks In Advance;

    Hi,
    yes you likely have them configured for a d2c and not a d2b. if you take a picture we can confirm. to make it d2b compatible you'll need to cut a few traces.

    Us You are right, it is a D2B

    Hi Spyman:
    It is configured for a D2C and my drive is D2B, I understand I have to do a few things to modify the chip. Any info you might have?
    Thanks in Advance;

    Us It is still not working, red light!

    Thanks Spyman:
    I did everything I was advised to do by the seller "Modchipcentral" and now the led is red constantly, the drive won't spin. I would really appreciate your guidance.

    Thanks;
