What chip/set up do you have and how do you like it?
Well? All this talk about soldered, solderless, v2, v3, disc read errors, errors, etc etc gets me a bit confused. At first I was going to do the d2pro9 with the wii key solderless solutution. Then I heard it was a big risk because it can come loose, etc. I also read all the threads about people having problems with them. Solderless seems ideal but in the long run maybe finding an installer is best.
For reference, this is mine.
Your Drive Chip is most likely GC2-D2C.
Your Drive Pins are most likely not cut.
The Wii was bought around March or so.
I would install the D2Sun or D2E.. I was big on the the D2pro9 myself..
but these eject issues is very annoying..
so i moved on with the D2Sun modchip and D2E..
they work perfectly.. so for now.. for you and whoever sees this..
I would install these chips for $80. (chip included). $15 shipping = $95 total.
The day i receive your system is the day i will work on it,
and ship it back via priority mail... Special of the week.. come and get it before
offer is up ..more feedbacks here..im known around here..
and im also one of the installers "in the installers section" firstname.lastname@example.org 407 731 9462
I use the D2Pro9 v3 chip with the latest firmware. I have a D2b board, and I do not have any ejecting issues or any issues at all.
Mine is soldered, and i believe thats the way to go. In the long run, less problems then the solderless versions. If you can solder or know someone with a lot of experience, i highly recommend getting wires soldered.
You have no issues cause you have the D2B drive.. if you had the D2C2 drive..
then you would have the eject issues.. even with D2pro9v3 ..tried it already..
D2SUN is the way to go.. or D2E which is compatible even with the news D2E chip sets.

§piktsµ, For clarification, are you saying there is now a modchip called D2E? If so, do they have an oficial website? As I thought D2E was the Wii Drive chip type.
Yes.. there is a new mod chip which is compatible with all wii drives..
D2E A9 is the name of the mod chip.. very good modchip too.. love it!
i gotta say that §piktsµ's install price is pretty good! chip included?!
I have a D2C drive with d2pro9 and wii-clip. I have never modded anything before, so i tried the wii-clip and it works fine. i followed the installation videos produced by canadamods (very good & found on this site, youtube, and other sites). my wii sits in one place, it doesnt move around much (how often do you move your wii around?), so i'm not that worried about the clip coming loose.
also once you close the unit, it seems there is plenty of pressure holding the clip in place. like a wii-clip sandwich, hehe. it's pretty tight in there and reason why the wii is such a small device.
Yes modchip included..
And thank you for the comment..
Just in case your WiiClip would come lose..
I would install the chip for you for only $50. and $15. for shipping it back to you..
Just letting your know about my deals to the ones that have the WiiClip and not
happy with them.. Alright have a good sunday bro!
I have the Wii Clip + D2CKey for my D2C wii. And I have yet to get any problem, except problems with using cheap medias =p. And I put a Wii Clip + D2Pro9v2 in my uncle's D2E wii and he haven't yet to get any problem as well. With the wii clip you just got to be pretty precise when you clip it on the drive chip. You gotta get it right the first time or else you will damage the legs of the wii clip. What I do with the wii clip when i put it on is I would align it on the Wii drive's chip. I make sure they're well align on all 4 corner and hold all 4 corners flat even on the drive chip with my thumbs and indexes (both hand 2 each). Then I would again make sure everything is align right while pushing on the clip (not to hard just enough for it to stay on the drive's chip. Then when everything is ready I give all 4 corner a good press (try to give all 4 corner same firm force) the clip then would smoothly clip on the drive's chip. I installed 2 of these clips already and I never heard the click sound like on the instruction manual said. But you should be able to feel that the clip has just swallow your wii drive chip lol. Then I kinda give the clip some pressing to make sure it's on evenly. Good luck with your modding man =)
