    If I were you, I would stick to just using games in the same region as the wii. Or just take your updates off the internet so you dont have to mess with the image of the backup.

To be fair, the latest D2Pro firmware has fixed these issues but I hate having to teach customers to reprogram their chips every other month.

    I wouldnt use brick blocker because newer system updates may look at the game and check to see if it has been modified and not allow it to play ie. in the 3.3 system update and trucha signed games
    I personally don't find it an issue teaching someone how to program their d2pros. That is why I give my customers a written step by step instructions on how to reprogram their chips with pictures (for the noobs) whenever I install the d2pro in their wiis. I personally find the best way to keep maintaining customer relationship is to help them whenever they are in really weird jams with their systems.

    Hey,
    You've just scared me a little bit Im totally new user of wii, i have my console since 3 days. Yesterday i ordered d2pro v3 chip (D2E compatibile version) for my wii. My serial numer starts with LEH1684 and Wii Drive Chip Database said that i have GC2-D2C(v1) drive in my box. Will this chip work on my console at all? What about inching/ejecting problems in my case - is there a chance it will worj fine ? Is firmware update for chip required? I so, is it possible to upgrade it using dvd since i dont have a programmer? I'm sure that most of those questions will solve themselves at the beggining of next week when finally the chip will be delivered, but im worried if i bought correct one

    Best Regards
    Piotr

    You have a v1 D2C so the hopefully the place you bought the chip at already flashed the chip to 2.3/1.6 firmware just to be safe

    So you're trying to tell me that the chip which is on the way should already have new firmware to avoid future problems? is this correct? If yes i'll try contact the seller and ask about firmware version...
    If he deliver me chip with old firmware i'ts possible that im going to have some inching/ejecting problems?

    One more question: Should the d2pro chip be soldered to the drive during the 2.3 firmware update, does it need some power supply to programm? Or it can be totally unconnected - just using flat cable during firmware upgrade? Where can i find some firmware updating tutorial?
    Thanks in advance..

    if the chip is installed onto the drive then u shuold power the wii on when programming the chip.do not have a game running but just leave the wii in the main menu...if the wii is not powered on then u will need to remove the power and ground on the chip in order to program it.
