djsmallz: You have a D2C2 drive that was made after the "transitional period" where Nintendo started changing parts. Probably bought in late may or june 2008.
MW61: You probably have a D2C v1 drive that was made before the "transitional period". Did you buy it before may 2008?
The ones without the second line are always D2C2 if they have the clip and sometimes D2C2 if they don't have the clip, but a PCB with "APCB" markings.
I bought mine on May 16th from Blockbuster which had it on the shelf for probably a week, maybe longer.
Blockbusters... that's in North America...
I got my first D2C2 Wii's in the Netherlands (Europe) around the 8th of may and they were fresh from the distributor after being sold out everywhere for weeks.
A few of the Wii's looked just like MW61 is describing and those were the rare D2C v1's from that batch and probably were the last remaining old stock.
I stand corrected. My wii has been completely modded, by Spiktsu [ Spiktsu@gmail.com ] from Orlando FL. He had a very quick turn around time, and I am impressed with the results. I deifintely reccomend giving him an email if you need your modchip soldered. great contact and customer service also.

anyone know when the D2C2 started appearing
What I dont get is how in the hell is the wii-clip supposed to work when it only covers over one chip, and clearly there were connections needing to be made to 2 chips on the board as evidenced by the above pictures.
Around the end of April..
