    i did this and got this infomation

    There is a 94% chance that your drive chip is a GC2-D2B
    and a 6% chance that it is a GC2-DMS.

    what dose this mean

    are you talking about what chipset the wii has or what modchip you have? I don't understand how people have wii and they don't know what modchip they installed/got installed. lol

    and if you are looking for what modchip you have there is no way for anyone to know except for you by opening it up. how did you get a modded wii and not know what modchip you got?

    So then your only option is to take your Wii apart yourself and look to see which chip it is. The config disc is the only way you're going to know. Or find a bootdisc designed for one chip that won't run on others. Other than that, you gotta take it apart and look.

    I've the same problem, I don't know which chip I've got.

    Is there one release that works on one but not on another chip?

    I thought I might have a wiikey but every one of the 6 burns on dvd results in the black screen "An error has occured. Press the Eject Button and remove the Disc, then turn off the wii console....."

    Would this error appear if I didn't have a wiikey?
