    You can go to http://www.wiidrives.com/list and enter part of the Wii's serial number and find out which drive chip you have.

    I believe if the drive chip is D3 or higher it won't work with disk backups.

    Oh if this doesnt work and your wii is hacked just run neogamma and try to play from dvd without disc inserted, it will say you if your wii can read backups or not.
    @Snowmanne:
    Yep it's D3 or higher.
