    Hey there;

    I have done some search; but with word speeds, it leads me to topics speaking about burning speed for media.

    But i am looking for something else : the purpose of changing the drive speed. From 3x to 6x is there any difference ?
    It works for gamecube ? wii ? both ?

    The wii do not seems to make less noise at 3x; so i was quite curious about the interest of this feature.

    Thanks in advance for the helping guy !! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's supposed to make less noise when set at a lower speed. But games will load slower too. Setting it faster should load your games a little faster but louder.

    Ok; so no use of getting 6x to get some special game works ?

    The wii drive is originally at 6x or 3x ?

    Thanks by the way for the answer [​IMG]

    I found too many issues with setting it to 3x, especially for Cube games. I played Super Smash Bros. Melee on a disc I usually get DRE's with after 10 minutes or so of play, and setting the speed to 3x only made me have DRE's after about 2 minutes of play.
