    Wiikey Fusion vs Drivekey?

    Hey guys I'm a n00b here and just installed Homebrew on a Wii my brother gave me for free. I am thinking about getting a modchip, I was wondering what the major differences between they two are? I've done a-lot of reading and I really cant find anything... Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks

    P.S. How can I figure if the chip works with my Wii and I've read about games running at 3X instead of 6X speed. Is that normal with both chips?

    There's a thread in the stickies of this section called Modchip Identification by davepm. It's got all the features of both modchips you're interested in listed with pictures.

    If your Wii is newer (bought within about the last year) you might have a D3-2 drive that can't play backups. Check out wiidrives.com/list to see what you have.

    Hey I just put in my serial and the site kindof confuses me, my serial # is lu720727843 and it says there is a 50% chance of being a GC2-D3 drive with no drive chip. Then it lists the compatable drive chips below and it says that the Wiikey Fusion does work with the GC2-D3 drive. So which one is right does the Wiikey Fusion work or not, the information is a little contradictory...?

    If it's a d3 nothing drive (50%) then the fusion should work to play your backups from disc. But if it's a d3-2 drive (25%) the fusion will only let you play backups from SD card. To know for sure you'd have to open up the console and look at your drive's board. We have guides for that if that's something you're interested in doing (one's a sticky in this section).

    Or you can softmod the console and test a disc out using a loader like neogamma. If it won't work and you've done all the right steps, you'll know.
