    I'm not sure in most cases that it is even possible to change them over as they are a completely different fit.

    My wii is 2011 produced, i read most of threads about playing movies from DVD on this my white Wii before posting here, i checked at Wii Drive Chip Database - Serial Number Estimation with my serial number, it returns 2-3 results with percents like 25% 50% 25% about posibility that i have D3 or D3-2 or D4-2 chipset...

    If i understand good, Wii changed type of DVD-ROMS or internal drives in newer Wii consoles, like my one, and with these new dvd-roms or internal drives isn't possible to play movies from DVD through WiiMC and similary apps ?

    What's exactly problem for playing DVDs on these news models, hardware blocking of burned DVDs, in firmware blocking, or whatever, i ask this just informative, cause i see on many sites, some offers, for unlocking newer modesl with 4.3 OS, to play DVDs, probably just some fhishing sites and scams ?

    You can't play DVD's fullstop. There is no software to do it. It's hardware.. You can play movies from a HDD or you can swap the drive for an older one. I'd go with the HDD option personally.

    Sure, i'll use HDD option, i just asked about posibility, and what's really problem with DVD playback, i read many threads here, and it seems problem is with DVD-roms in newer Wii consoles...

    You know, sometimes all we are lazy , and it's easier when some friend borrow us some movie on DVD to put it directly in dvd-rom, instead to rip it ... However, i'm not on lucky men list with older dvd-roms, and i'll have to use HDD for playing movies, etc. ...

    But i'll try to find some older DVD-ROM, just to have for this type of DVDs, with some movies etc.
