    Question

    Quote Originally Posted by vanDrunen View Post
    I bought three consoles in the Netherlands and they all have 2 lines on the chip, first line is GC2-D2C and second line is a number.
    The other chip is labelled GC2-D1A and they don't have "APCB D3 94V-0" written on the PCB. So I thought I was lucky and had the "old" D2C drive.

    When I proceeded to install a D2CKey (with Wii Clip, all connections verified by measuring through alternative solder points), it just wouldn't work. The console turns on and originals play fine. Blue light flashes when reading from disc, but the red light never turns on and backups don't work.

    Installing an old version D2Pro with 15 wires gave almost the same behaviour as with the D2CKey. Installing it with 9 wires (so... not real time patching, but code injection) caused the drive's disc insertion motors to continuously start and stop with 2 second intervals.

    A D2Pro9 v2 worked flawlessly! So it turned out to be a D2C2 drive!

    The only difference I could notice between this drive and any of the "old" D2C drives was the metal clip on top of the drive, right above the plastic spindle, with the number "2" embossed in it.
    So far all drives that had this clip (with or without the "2") have turned out to be D2C2 drives and in the beginning all these drives also had D2C chips with only one line.

    Long story short:
    If your D2C chip has two lines and the PCB does not have "APCB D3 94V-0" on it then it can still be a D2C2. Always look for the metal clip above the spindle on top of the drive. This metal clip has been a better indicator for me than than looking at the chip or PCB.
    Can you install the d2pro9 v2 with a wii clip?

    just my 2cents.. i thought about purchasing d2pro with wii-clip but after researching diff forums and reading feedback from wii-clip users, it doesn't look like wii-clips are the best way to go even though it seems like it since no soldering is done. I sent my Wii to pro installer - spiktsu - after seeing all the work he has done and all his reviews here in the forums trusting that he'll mod my wii and return in very good shape and working order. I've received photos of my modded wii and he really did a good clean job of soldering. My unit is on it's way back to me after he modded it yesterday(the same day he received my unit). he communicated with me before, during, and after he shipped it back out to me. Even though i don't have it yet, i believe it when he says games like ssbb work on it. I'll let you know if all goes well when i test it in a few days. I recommend using his services rather than modding it with the buggy wii-clip. You don't have to worry then about what chip you need. He'll figure all that stuff out for you.

    Purchased in July, 2008. How do I tell if this Wii console can be modded? WolfpackRon.

    when you figure out what drive chip you have, make sure to submit it to Wii Drive Database.

    Smasher, you're right about D2E.

    People who have old D2C, what are the percentage of chance that it won't work w/ the d2pro9 v2 and wii-clip presoldered without having to solder the J?
