    Question About My Drive

    Hey everyone, i have a quick question about my Wii. My question is does my Wii have the new drive because the serial it has isn't the same as the two WiiJohn mentions in his welcoming post. Mine is LU6596XXXX. By "after" did he mean any serial number which is higher than the ones he mentions? Thanks in advance for the help as its greatly appreciated.

    If your Wii was purchased 8 months or less ago, high probability of D3-2 drive. There's a site where you can input your serial to see what it says... look here.

    You can always opt for USB HD gaming --- see Gen3SF's tutorial on the subject here.

    Yea that's what i was planning from the beginning as from what I've read HDD gaming seems to be the best route for me. Unfortunately I have to go back to school tomorrow and wont be back home till i finish up school in May so i cant mod it until then. Offtopic: yay i survived my first year in college!. Sorry bout that, I'm just am really excited to hurry up and finish haha OnTopic:Oh well, at least i got my foot in the door now and can still read up some more while im over there. Who knows maybe something new might pop-up between now and then...Thanks for the link Nightstah!
