    I'm about to buy a Wiikey2 but I have a quick question...

    It might be a stupid one but it says certain consoles require 5 wires and others require 6. How do I tell what console I have? D2C, D2E, DMS, etc?

    You can go to Wii Drive Chip Database and type in your serial number. If you board is a D3-2 then don't buy it cause the wii will not be able to read discs. If your system is on menu 4.2 then it will only be able to play in-region games.

    My drive isn't listed...my serial number is LU30095XXX

    EDIT: Ok but when I type that in box up top it says there's a 100% chance it's a "GC2-DMS" So I should be good to go right?

    woot! Bought it earlier this morning. Only like $25 shipped and it should be here in 2-3 days

    Should only take me like 30 seconds to solder it, it's only 5 wires and I've got quite a bit of experience

    Make sure you go onto wiikey's site and look at how the lights should be flashing on the modchip and it should tell you if it is installed successfully. After you install it, download the new update from wiikey's site which is the wiikey2 1.3 update in your region and it should allow you to play new super mario bros. without a hitch.
