    If its a new wii then it probably has a d2c chipset. However, the only way to be absolutely sure it to crack it open and look. Depending on which chipset your wii is will determine which modchips are compatible.

    d2c solutions include d2pro, d2ckey, argon, and wasabi.

    I've been reading all positive reviews for the wii-clip so far.

    which one out of the four is recommended? d2pro, d2ckey, argon, or wasabi?

    i read reviews here regarding the clip solution that says people usually won't have problems with them right away, but they might later on? is that still true?

    regarding the wii-clip, this is what OzModChips said in this thread: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=78254&st=15

    any opinions?

    also i am still pretty confused as to which modchip to choose for my D2C wii. can anyone give me a quick run down of pros and cons? i keep reading a lot of contradictory information like wasabi is the best, and then no they are not. d2ckey can be updated in the future and no they can't.

    I agree, D2pro is the best solution out there right now. They have DVD upgradability and they have a 9 wire solution out now. They also don't have any bugs, unlike the Wasabi.

    Im in manchester and i have had my wii since last febuary and its has the wiifree chip installed. I seem to be having a few probs on the games that are coming out for the future i.e Wiifit. So i think it is time for a chip upgrade. Any ideas on chip and price i should be paying, also supplier for manchester area. Also can the wiifree chip be taken out and a new chip installed.

    Well with a normal 19-17-14 wire D2Pro you can just use the USB programmer to upgrade it to 9-wire.

    i think you need to solder another piece onto it first, and then re-program it.

    all those are extra cost and labor that i would rather just get the 9-wire version.
