    Replacing D3-2 drive

    Hi people of Wiihacks!

    Are there any issues replacing an "unmoddable" D3-2 drive with D2B or D2C?
    The xbox 360 has it's dvd-key and so on, is the wii clueless about witch drive is connected?

    Nope! No issues at all...
    replace and u will be set...
    Wii does not have security feature like the X360..

    Looks like the wii is unaware of the dvd-version attached so you should be safe with any.
    I've replaced D3-2 with D2B and D2C without any issues.

    There is correct... you can swap it for any other drive model...

    Do you have to replace the whole drive or can you swap just the DVD motherboard to an earlier revision? It would be the cheaper option!

    Yep.. you can change the motherboard...
    No, you dont have to change the whole drive...
    if you are comfortable re-soldering the wires then yes... you can do it...
    Good luck...
