Just read the readme from the d2pro9 2.3 firmware.... not for D2E chipset because, ' Since no issues have been discovered with d2pro on d2e chipsets, there is no need for a firmware upgrade if you are using d2pro on a d2e chipset.' I beg to differ. I had issues from the onset, now they are worse - can't get a disk in no matter what. Will have to take clip off.... but trying to hang on taking wii to bits again, as will only have to do it again once a firmware update comes out - if infact it ever will!!! I will probably have to fit the cable and buy a programmer... will struggle to update via DVD as i can't get a bleedin one in the thing!! Mine is a PAL machine if it makes any odds. Anyone else having issues with d2pro9 V3 chip and a D2E chipset??
