    Hi, I want to buy a Wii that can play Backup DVDs and I'm kind of confused with everything I read.
    Serial number of one I found is LU1361, the Wii Drive Chip Database telle me that there's :
    Your drive most likely has the following chipset:

    • There is a 25% chance the chipset is GC2R-D2A.
    • And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D2C (v1).
    • And a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D4 on a smaller drive board.
    • Lastly, a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip.
    Wich one of these is backup friendly?
    I have a black Wii softmodded and play games via external HDD, but I want one to play backups too.

    Thanks!

    Why ? It's slow and annoying.

    Is it really that bad? Cause I have a collection of burned games with custom cases and artwork and just wanna try it.

    Burned games load at half the speed of official discs. Meanwhile USB-loaded games load faster than either of those two options.

    That's an interesting fun fact. I love USB Loading.

    USB loading is considered environment friendly. Think about the trees.
