Have had my wii chipped for a little over a year now, when i bought it brand new, it had problems reading original games. Sent it straight in for repair and was never much better, so decided to get it chipped. Works fine with backups. Just bought wiifit, and it couldn't read the disk, gave DRE screen. Backed it up, and it works fine. But, i noticed the drive seems to be much quieter using the backup - does this mean it's running at a lower speed? I always thought the D2ckey read at 6x, and the wiikey 3x. When i bought the wii, D2C's had been out for a while, so i just asked the guy to fit a d2ckey, but never checked it out myself. Reasons why i think it might be a wiikey 1) I was able to run the 1.9S update disk which fully completed. 2) Using GCOS, the software says there's a D2B found - don't know if this is accurate? 3) Sounds as though games are running at a lower speed 4) Looking through the SD card slot, I can't see an LED 5) Once in a while, i get an 001 error - very rare - might just be because the wii is slightly faulty? 6) could nintendo have swapped the drive out for another when it went in for repair? the repair note didn't actually detail any changes that had been made, looked as though they'd done nothing to it, but the guy who modded it rang me up to ask if it had been opened before because the screws had definitely been out before. Reasons why it might be d2ckey 1) it's what i paid for 2) the chipset number would suggest d2c Anyone offer up a better way to test without opening the wii up?
