    Are there white WIIs with new d3-2 drives?

    SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST!!! I GOT THE TIMEOUT ERROR THE FIRST TIME SO I WENT BACK AND POSTED AGAIN WITHOUT CHECKING FIRST.

    Self explanitory hopefully...I'd like to purchase a Wii...one that could read backups if needed.
    Since Limited edition black Wii is not capable of reading dvdr discs I'll purchase a white one (and maybe later a custom faceplate), but can I go wrong with a white one too?
    Are there any ways to tell. In the shop all I can see is the numbers on the box (barcode), not the device itself, if only they'd let me test it first
    TIA

    anyhow most ppl who don't have wii modding going on. have stopped playing them long ago due to gameprices. alot of these are in good shape and some even boot2 capable bootmi. i just brought2 back to life last week for family members who stopped playing them long ago. otherwise they probably would have sold them.

    Thanks all for the help and suggestions...however since I'm buying this as a gift I'd rather like to buy a new one...so to recap please, how far back did the Nintendo start making white wiis with the new drives (I'll traverse the shops to see if any have wiis they acquired some time ago - would 3 months ago be sufficient - but have not sold yet)?

    Just in case I get lucky and someone allows me to unpack one in the shop and see the serial numbers inside, is there a list of serials ou there somewhere, a list of wii serial starting numbers and their corresponding drives builtin? Which ones to avoid besides LU39 please? TIA

    EDIT
    Googled it...http://www.wiidrives.com/list...unfotunatelly, I'm not sure it's accurate, it says PAL WIIs with LEM, LEH, LEF serials are D3-2 drives equiped and LU39 have dvdr capable D3 (non D3-2) drives (is it possible there are so many of non dvdr readables out there, could anyone confirm this please, which ones to search for then to be safest)...

    @TRISTAN - Excuse me but was the LU39 WII the white one being sold in the Sports Resort Pack and Motion Plus Wii bundle? The one that you bought? Is it safe to assume that bundles with Wii Sports are non D3-2?
