    What the hell???

    Is there anyone out there running any chip that is available for sale NOT having problems???

    I have read tons of posts on all the specific chip threads and all of them are "help my chip doesn't work".
    Help My drive freezes
    Help I have a Black screen
    Help My disk wont eject and keeps spinning
    Help I installed the chip and I get an error message
    Help This thing sucks
    Help My chip worked for a few days now doesn't work
    Help my box doesn't seem to have power
    Help is my Dvd drive dead
    Help Help Help
    Help help

    I mean what are we buying people? Does anyone on this forum have a chip that has worked for a 6-12 month period without screwing up your box for 5-7 months out of the 6-12???


    I bought a chip and of course I plugged it in and I got the Error screen of death I went to the US post office and to send the chip back Express mail (5 days with tracking number) it will cost me 25.00. When I get an RMA number from a supplier am I supposed to pay to send it back?

    My 70.00 dollar chip has just turned into a 100.00 chip and I still don't know if the DRIVEKEY is a pc of crap and hasn't been really functional tested and had the bugs worked out...

    I mean in June am I going to see a Drivekey 2?? BS

    This is a Wii Hacking help site.
    People are sometimes too lazy to help themselves through our various guides.
    Add these and = the topics you see.

    Oh, and EVERY chip has advatages/disadvantages. Drivekey is great, only flaw is 3x read speed, which only really slows down loading times a bit...If you DO order one, get it from Wii Drivekey Supplier for North American & International - Wiidrivekey.com

    As Zerosyko says, this is a wii hacking site, and so people post their problems that can be usually (like more then 90%) solved pretty easily.

    Almost every one of the bolded statements in Zerosyko's post are topics that people are too lazy to fix themselfs (which is usually done easily)

    Black Screen: 3 minutes of research and installation (if you have homebrew channel, and if you have a modchip, all you need a some IOS's)

    I never seen a topic about drive freezing xD, but those problems are most likely bad installtions, wrong solder points, etc.

    Chip doesn't work?: Sure its genuine, all soldered correctly, are you using a wiiclip?

    Almost all the problems that I've seen (which are repeated problems that can be solved by just reading the "Recommended faqs and tutorials" section) can be fixed easily. People are just too lazy to do a little research.

    Modchips are great (less problems/troble than back-up loaders), Most of them (Like wiikey, D2chips, and many other newer ones) Read at 6x speed, (except Drivekey which Zerosyko said).

    I have not read many modchip problems, if you notice many of it has to do with homebrew/hacking issues.

    I hope this imformation has been useful.

    Can you recomend me some modchip stores (sorry I don't know how to call them correctly) in Europe? The URL you posted looks good to me but I'm afraid, the shipping would cost me more than the modchip itself (I'm living in Switzerland).
    Guitar Hero is fun, so please add me if you like!

    Thanks and I could be interested.
    However, what I see is that this chip requires soldering. I am looking for a solderless solution.

    Would you have that?

    Also, is Drive Key the best suited one for my Wii OR would you recommend another chip mod chip?

    Thanks for the quick reply...
    I just checked the serial number of my console and am a bit disappointed... !!

    It starts with LU6317xxxx which I think would be covered in that black glue!!

    Don't think the clip solution will therefore fly.... unless you think otherwise.
    The ribbon solution seems a little scary to me on the other hand.


    decisions...decisions...decisions...!!
