    Question Unknown wii serial?

    Hi all, I have another wii with a LEH1899XXXXX serial (UK), the drive serial checker in my sig doesn't list it, it goes as far as LEH1897XXXXX for a UK Wii and lists two with different drive chips.

    Anyone know what drive chip this has? I'm guessing D2C2 or D2 as the LEH1897XXXXX wii's have either of those.

    Are there any limitations to having these drive chips?

    No D2C2 and D2 are fine. But if you have D3-2 then you are screwed with backups. Its can only be played from the hdd.

    Cheers thucncao, I was hoping someone might have the same starting digits as those in my opening post and could tell me exactly what drive chip I have. This Wii was bought in May of this year (2009) and is UK, so I doubt it has the D3-2 drive chip

    I actually prefer the USB HDD method, I can't see the point in creating CD's if you don't have to, seems a lot of work for little benefit.

    My wii has a D2C2 drive so everything should be fine for you. I am hardmodded and softmodded.
