    Your Drive Chip is most likely GC2-D2B.

    Your Drive Pins are most likely cut.

    To help the WiiTracker become even more accurate please consider adding your actual console data to the WiiTracker database if and when you decide to open it up.

    Does that help?
    You can use all the popular chips like wiikey, wiinja, and YAOSM.

    No the 32 wire chip is for the D2C , not D2B. You can use pretty much any of the older chips you want (wiikey etc) , you just have to repair the 3 cut pins on the ic and install as normal or solder directly to the little stumps of the pins.

    That part armadillo sayd is VERY hard!

    Becurse it needs drilling into the chip!

    Yhaa I read about drilling.. holy crap that looks hard.

    I saw images and I was like there is no way I can do this myself and its pretty pricey for some one else to install it for you.

    Good thing I'm in no rush I plan on buying No More Heroes and Super Smash Bros for now.

    I'll figure a way....

    Though my question is.....
    what is the difference between D2C and D2B? Which one is the newer way to battle against piracy?

    I thought D2C was the latest model available to battle piracy.

    Thanks for the reply guys.

    D2C isn't the latest. But its much more secure than the DMS/D2A/D2B chips.

    The D2C requires 15-30 wires installed ON the chip! which makes it VERY diffuelt to install!.
