    Wiidrives.com doesn't have information for Korean wii's drives, any other place to find info about these?

    Or can anyone make a guess about what drive in a Korean wii with LKM1045**** serial number?

    @happydance : hmm, the one got here is D3-2, I suspect a drive board change on this drive... It's said to be bought last year...

    Is this normal?
    VEP721XX below the drive cable reads VEP702XX on top of the drive. Do they match normally?

    yeah i think VEP721XX near the drive cable and VEP702XX on top of the drive match with yours with the D3 Drive

    but with d2c drive got it's VEP721XX and VEP701XX

    an off topic question the D3 drive i mention able to play backup's is that a D3-1?? cause i got the impression that D3 drive can't read backups

    Well the owner of this drive has bricked his wii in a mysterious way and then the wii made a trip to a few unofficial service centers...

    Now in my hands... I'm suspecting it to be a D3-2 one since drive chip is completely blank but user says he was using backup dvds before the wii got bricked...

    So I'm suspecting a complete drive or drive board change on this one. I'll open my wii to replace with this drive to make sure though.

    I guess first batch of D3 drives called D2Nothing can be used with softmod and solderless chips...

    Here is the description about D3-2 on wiidrives.com

    So this statement contradicts the user's statement, he says he was able to use backup dvds...

    Sorry, I have to bump to finalize the thread,

    It seems wiidrives.com was wrong saying "only way to seperate the two is to look at the top of the large D3 chip and if the chip is completely blank it's the new D3-2" since this drives chip's top is completely blank but it's able to read backup dvds.
