    Hi.
    I just bought a Wii black (limited edition) and I fully softmodded it:
    cIOS v14, Hermes cIOS v4, cMIOS v10, NeoGamma r7 autoboot and USB Loader CFG v48b,
    but it can't read any DVD-R or DVD+RW... it returns read error 1120
    It's due the infamous D3-2 drive :/

    USB loading is perfect, but, damn, I can't watch my collection of DivX
    and install my backups using the Wii [​IMG]

    Can I change the DVD drive with an old D2 or I must put a modchip ?

    Some modchips enable the DVD-R reading, so I guess it's not a hardware blocking.
    There will be an hacked firmware like on XBOX360 ?

    Cheers

    No hacked firmware for the drive, since we can't reflash them. If we could, drive flashing would have been a better solution vs. cIOSes and loaders.
