    Hi Everyone,

    I have a softmodded black wii with system menu 4.2, a D3-2 DVD Drive and wish to run my gamecube backups on it, now I know this is not possible as I stand but I am willing and able to solder a modchip into the Wii.

    So the question is; what Modchip would you guys recommend for this type of Wii?

    So far the Wii Key Fusion is looking the most promising.

    Thank you

    I'd say screw a modchip and get a WODE. If you have a PC/Laptop next to your wii however, I recommend a FlatMii.

    The Wode is too expensive so I wont be getting that, Would you agree that a Flatmii is just a solderless version of the Wiikey fusion? or have I got it all wrong?
    Thanks for the suggestions BTW [​IMG]

    I have just had an idea, I have an original Wii (That I bought on launch day) that doesnt read discs anymore it has a GC2-D2B Drive.

    Could I swap the 2 boards over and use the new laser on that old board to let me read Gamecube games again?.....

    In that case it sounds like the DVD drive itself is broken and would be pointless no matter what.
