    Okay, here's what's been going on. I have just received my WiiKey2 soldered onto a V3C Wii-Clip. I notice that the WiiKey is only soldered onto the actual clip in 5 spots (I assume this may be the problem.). However, I have a D1A drive (even though Nintendo didn't change the serial when replacing the drive [​IMG]) and all I get is a magical red LED whenever I plug the clip onto the drive board.

    The disc drive won't accept anything either, it completely knocks it out whenever the clip is on.

    Should all 9 wires be soldered onto the clip even though it's not on the actual board? If so, I can get the extra 4 wires soldered on. I just need some confirmation before I go out melting alloy on my modchip. [​IMG]

    I will try to post some pictures later next time I hook up the ol' iPhone to my laptop.

    Thanks in advance,
    Sponge

    Upon looking at the wiikey 2 install guide:
    EDIT: And I think you are reading the top of the wrong chip. What is written on top of the smaller chip next to the D1A?

    Haha, wow. I feel very much like a noob right now.

    The smaller chip which the clip goes onto is a GC2-D2C.

    Exactly what points go to where on the clip though? That's my main concern right now, I can't find a guide anywhere. @_@

    Well here's how it is now:

    (Chip > Clip)

    A > J
    B > H
    C > G

    D, E, F, and G on the WiiKey itself are open.
    D, E, F, and C re open on the clip.

    Should I do D>D, E>E, F>F, and G>C?

    Chip Clip
    D - F
    E - E
    F - D
    G - C

    EDIT: I am comparing the wiikey2(your chip) install guide with the D2Pro9(the clip you have was made for this chip) install guide.

    I just spent hours figuring this out...

    gc2-dms
    Wiikey v2 pre-installed on a v14 clip.

    voltage, ground, A,B,C,G already soldered.

    Had the drive won't take any discs problem.... I cut the solder off of the G point with a razor and it works now [​IMG]
