So when I bought the Wii the shopkeeper didn't know what chip was in the Wii. I've looked through some suggestions and it looks like the recommended step is to open it up and look at the serial. Unfortunately this isn't possible for me to do (don't ask

Will I end up with a brick if my chip is not a wiikey or will it be something harmless like just not being able to start the disc? I really hope its the latter then I can knock down the chips one by one until I find my one. Just hoping someone knows what will happen, i don't want a brick

Thanks in advance.

I'm having the same problem, but I think mine's a Cyclowiz since it doesn't run Call of Duty. Should I try Wiikey Update 1.9g? What results should I get if it's a Cyclowiz/Wiikey ?

I tried the Wiikey Update 1.9g disc but, the Wii doesn't even recognize it. Maybe because it's only 41mb? Shouldn't GameCube ISOs be 1.3GB?

Mine recognizes the config disc too. It just doesn't save the settings I don't think. It also recognizes the Wiinja, Cyclowiz ones

Really? I'm confused now as to whether i have the right chip. Anyways its not supposed to save the settings on the disk, it saves it on the chip. So the disc will always remain default but the chip has been changed.
