    Check the serial number in my signature. That's my wii . Bought it 1 month ago. If you compare this serial number with the ones found on Wii Drive Chip Database, mine should have a d3-2 drive. All serial numbers LEH2723 have a d3-2 drive in wiidrives.com. Yet, mine doesn't have a d3-2 one since it plays backups. By the way, the sys version of my wii was 3.4E which means it was shipped to the store long time ago. I say in 2008. So the best way is to ask the seller when did he get that wii .

    If u have someone living in lebanon . Let him buy you a PAL Wii from Virgin Mega Store. Not the black one of course....
    I assure you 100%, that it has no d3-2.
