    jasiknom - I have not tried any PAL games yet. I tend to stick with my own region. I haven't ran accross any game I wanted that I couldn't find in NTSC.

    dastrax - Congratulations! You will not be disappointed if you have the D2B...I have seen issues on other sites for it being used on some newer generation models. I have only had a heat related issue due to my son playing the PS3 for 3 hours with it next to the Wii and the entertainment center door closed. I have to install my cab cool fan from Middle Atlantic into the rear of my game console section of the cabinet soon. I diverse...the wiizard is a solid chip and I am a game playing fool now. I just walked into the house and can't wait to power up and try some more games. I have to buy some DL discs so I can burn and play my SSBB.

    I just installed my wiizard with wiiclip and my wii is not reading my backups. When I installed it I powered it up and both green and red solid lights lit up on the chip but Im not sure if they are supposed to do that or not.

    I have tried a couple different backups burning at low speed. There was also a piece of electricians tape on the chip. Is that supposed to be there or should I remove it. Any help on what I should do next would be appreciated.

    Make sure you push the two cables connecting the drive all the way in. Also, put a piece of electrical tape over the clip do it doesn't fall off.

    Yes, most issues can be traced to a loose cable or connection. Some have found that some electrical tape, as stated above, works find. At least you know that it is not the chip.

    I opened my wii up again and realized the two rubber "washers" were in the wrong spot. I had them inside the drive, where they were basically doing nothing, instead of underneath the drive. Since they weren't underneath the drive, the drive was sitting on the chip. I think that is what was causing the problem because it's working fine now.

    I do and so far I have had no problems. I just update as needed. This is a no hassle chip. I installed it and haven't had a single issue...except not enough time to play like I want

    Thumbs up

    I have had a wiizard for almost a year and a half now and have had ZERO problems with it. Videos from where I ordered it helped me install it, although it's pretty straight forward. the only reason I got it was because - at the time, the only solderless solution for D2B w/cut legs was wiizard. The only exception to the perfect record I've had with this chip is of course NSMB. When I first got the chip, I probably should have read up a little more about HBC and system menu updates and the whole shibang, but I just went on mindlessly updating my wii until NSMB came out. I own the game, and it will play just fine with my original. However after about ten minutes of playing on the backup, I get the error screen that normally gives you a number like 001 or 002. This screen doesn't even give a number at all! It just says error, please eject, and reset the console. So at 4.1u, I started reading more in this forum, and learned about a lot of thing that I shouldn't have done, like mindlessly installing system updates! But back to this topic, the Wiizard has gotten me all the way to 4.1u without HBC or messing around with my IOSs or anything, without a single hitch. And in reading about some of the horror stories, to me - this seems to be an impressive feat! This is my first post on the forum and sorry for it being so lengthy, but I just wanted people to know about the stability of this chip. However, I've learned here that if your gonna mod, you would be best to become very adept at this knowledge this board provides. With me, I'm still a dummy about it - but I'm trying. Maybe wiizards are made for dummys as well!
