    Modded Wii won't recognize disc...HELP!!

    I installed a Wasabi mod chip that came pre-soldered to a wii-clip V5 for NTSC into my D2C Wii. After installing the LED stayed red and the drive wouldn't accept a disc...like there was no power to the drive. I cycled the power a few times and the LED turned green and the drive started working. I'm able to play original discs, but cannot play backups. I get a disc read error. Any suggestions? Is it the media?

    I've tried both Fujifilm 16x DVD-R, burned at 4x & Memorex 16x DVD+R, burned at 4x...this is all I had laying around. Is there recommend media to use? I burned two different games from a iso file using Nero Burning ROM 7.10.1.2. I have a Samsung Super Writemaster DVD burner (a.k.a. TSSTcorp SH-S203B).

    I don't really have any experience with wasabi chips, but are you sure that your wii-clip is fully seated? Did it 'click' when you pressed it on? Also, I recommend using either Tyuden or Ritek media, those are the best in my experience. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    I'm pretty sure it's fully seated. I attempted it about 3-4 times with the same results. It's a snug fit and takes a bit of force to pull it off. When I checked the disc info on the Fujifilm, it's actually a Ritek disc. I'm going to re-try burning using Imgburn at 1x.

    Do you think the install is done right then? I just need different media and/or to use imgburn?

    taking the wii-clip off and putting it back on just makes the contacts weaker and does possibly damage the chip on the board. Make sure none of the legs on the chip are bent.

    I don't think any are bent. I wasn't able to see anything that looked out of place. The systems functions properly when the modchip is removed.

    I tried burning using Imgburn at 1x to the Fujifilm/Ritek disc with the same results. I'm going to try some Verbatium disc next. I also picked up a 47uF capacitor to solder between GND and K point, based off of the Wasabi website. That's if the other media doesn't work. I'm really hoping it's just the media and not a mod chip problem.

    Does anyone have a model number / part number of the Verbatium media that works best. I know a lot of manufactures will put out different versions of a DVD-R (purple back, blue back, silver back, etc...)

    I have to agree with ModderMan... Taiyo Yuden + ImgBurn = never fails me.

    I did have some issues with Verbatim + Nero... disc drive did a lot of "clicking".

    Burning at 4x gives me the best results.

    I tried Verbatium burned with Imgburn at 4x with the settings mentioned and still no luck.

    I'm now wondering if I have a D2C2 chip and not a D2C. I'll have to open it up again to verify. The strange thing is I get the green light on the mod-chip after cycling the power 5 times. Should that happen if I have a D2C2 chip?

    My serial number starts with LU318...is that a D2C or D2C2?

    Is there a modchip with a wii clip for the D2C2 chips?
