Discussion in 'Wii - Hacking' started by FenrirWolf, Nov 19, 2008.
I've searched for info on the matter and haven't found anything conclusive.
It shouldn't. DVD lasers are built for constant reading. And some games do this too. Like the new call of duty for example, it's constantly reading new data.
This would be true if the Wii had a DVD drive, it doesn't. It uses it's own.
I figured the Wii must have some capacity for constant reading since Metroid Prime 3 makes the thing beep and moan all the time. I just don't know if the dumper puts an even greater strain on the system.
Then what kind of drive is it? I can't imagine Nintendo developing something totally new just for their console.
Besides, the drive cán read normal movie DVD's, it's just not in the normal software package.
has anyone got the Dumper to work with SD??
Don't Wiis have a modified LG DVD drive?
or at least the older chipset versions?
So, you mean to tell me that despite the fact that the Wii now reads any DVD-R placed in it, the drive itself isn't meant to read DVDs?
The drive is a standard LiteOn DVD-ROM drive with Nintendo's Starlet acting as security.
Now, in reference to the topic:
The drive(including its laser) is no different than any other DVD-ROM drive. So, as long as you follow the same guidelines(ie: keep it away from direct heat, keep it clean, and don't put Lord of the Rings on loop and go on vacation) as any other piece of hardware, the drive will last as long as any other -- if not longer.
Only when you use your Wii to make toast.
God i'm sick of see this(Similar same fuckin thing tho) same dam question over and over again!
Yes of course it'll harm your wii! It'll fire lasers into the wii overheating components!!!
Lets see if we can start a new rumour!
Don't leave WC24 on anymore there is a mysterious hacker bricking wii's via it by scanning for wii ips!!! Everyone be safe and turn it off!
A WOD Drive - Wii Optical Disc Drive. Just like the GCN had a GOD.
I Have a God too..!!!
yes it does, it makes u wanna destroy ur wii after and get a xbox360
They're both DVD-ROM drives.
There's no such thing as a WOD.
The only difference in the GameCube DVDROM drive is that the firmware was written for CLV, while DVD-RW drives write CAV.
At high speed maybe... more likely to be CLV around the 4x/6x range. Either way, it's just a slightly customised matshita (ie panasonic) DVD-ROM.
For being such a prevalent discussion topic, there sure isn't much information on it. The search feature didn't help me find the information I wanted, so I asked. If it were better documented somewhere there wouldn't be the need for this thread or ones similar to it.
You really do like to spread misinformation don't you? I have DVD-RW drives that are CAV, CLV and even a Z-CLV drive hanging around.
The gamecube drive is also CAV (as is the wii). Please, if you aren't sure (or just don't have a clue) then don't spread complete falsities about.
i would like to put this forward for 'best comeback with correct information of the week award' .
Excellent answers there quim69 , good links and informative - i love the info here - thanks
Wow, teq just got owned.
And yes, as FenrirWolf said, there isn't much information on this subject.
