DriveKey Wii Mod Chip UK Euro Pal Wii

Well the WiiKey guys have done it yet again, we are proud to introduce you to the world first mod chip for the Wii D3 DVD drives the Wii DriveKey mod chip, this device will allow you to play your backups and games from other regions the same as you would with a chipped machine but uses no wires at all and is 100% solderless solution which is compatible with all Wii DVD drives including the latest D3 drive which so far there are no other solutions on the market. For those who don’t know yet the latest drive revision which was found in the AU market in Dec called the GC2-D3 also nick named d2nothing is a totally new design and they have removed the little controller chip found on all previous drives, this controller chip was how the old chips were able to work. So with no controller chip there is no way to use traditional chips such as the WiiKey with these D3 drives, this is where the DriveKey comes in and offers people with the D3 drive a valid option for them to be able to play their legitimate backups or games from other regions.

The DriveKey Wii modchip is not just for D3 owners either, if you have recently bought a Wii and have one of the epoxy D2E drives the Wii DriveKey is also a good solution for these drives, as they don’t require access to the controller chip and are installed running off the DVD drive ribbon cable, these will essentially be a solderless solution for the epoxy D2E drives as well. With that being said, a traditional chip such as the WiiKey 2 does have some advantages over the Drive Key, first being that the WiiKey 2 will support full drive speed, where the DriveKey only supports 2x read, this won’t be a huge problem and will just cause some of the games to load a fraction slower, there is possible concern about games such as call of duty that require fast read speeds to load the textures that the drive key might not be able to keep up, but so far we have not been able to test this out, so traditional chips will load games faster than the new method used by the DriveKey and won’t have the issue of not be able to load textures fast enough in some games, also the Wii DriveKey does not have the GameCube audio fix, so playing some of the older GC games might lead to some problems, so if you’re a fan of your older GameCube games you might want to look at another option as the DriveKey would not be the best solution if you really want to be able to play the old GC games, but we don’t think that will be many of you out there anyway.

The DriveKey has the ability to update the firmware on the chip via DVD, this means the team can release software updates for the chip in the future that could add handy new functions to the chip, but also means if there were any bugs in the firmware they could be fixed and the users could just simply update the chip and the bugs would be gone. When the Wii Drivekey was first announced they were not going to have it be updateable, but it looks like the team decided at the last minute that adding upgrade support for the chip would be a good idea and a failsafe for customers in the long term. The other failsafe the team have added to the Drive Key is a J-Tag connector, this can be used with an external programmer to physically program the chip from your PC, why this can be good to have a J-Tag is because if at any point a Wii system update comes out and blocks the chips function in anyway, for example blocks the ability to update the chip by DVD, you would be able to buy a J-Tag programmer and update the chip manually, this means that you can be confidant when buying the Wii DriveKey mod chip that they will always have the ability to update the firmware no matter what happens with the Wii or possible system updates that could affect the chips function. The second and possibly the most sort after feature in chips today is the Brick Blocker, the Drivekey modchip will also include a brick blocking function that will stop any games from outside your consoles region from making system updates, if you have a PAL euro console and you play a USA NTSC game that happens to require a firmware update to the console to be able to play, this NTSC game could update your PAL console with an NTSC firmware which can basically render the console useless, your original PAL games would not work anymore and the system is what’s called bricked, this is where the brick blocker comes in, the DriveKey can detect if you’re trying to play a game from outside your consoles region that wants to do a system update and will basically block the game from doing the update, it will allow games from your consoles region to update the system firmware, but it will stop any game from outside your consoles region applying updates to the console. The brick blocker is particularly good for those that have kids that would not really understand about updates and to look out for games outside their consoles region, with the Drive Key brick blocker function enabled you don’t need to worry about the kids possibly damaging the console.

For those on a budget and own a new D3 drive or epoxy D2E and replacing the drive with a pre-modded drive kit is just out of the question, you will still be extremely happy using a device such as this Wii DriveKey mod chip. If you are a D2E epoxy owner you pretty much have three choices, if you’re in an area with an installer you could have a WiiKey 2 soldered in with wires, if you don’t have installers in your area you can buy a pre-modded drive pack like we sell on the site, or buy the Wii DriveKey. If you don’t have an installer in your area the Drive Key will be the cheapest option to get your console modded to play overseas games without selling your old drive on EBay to offset the costs of the pre-modded drive packs, but still the premium option would be to replace the drive and still run an traditional chip such as the WiiKey 2, being that you can sell your Epoxy D2E drive on EBay for around $70 the pre-modded drive pack still does come in cheaper than the DriveKey and does offer more function and performance for the cost. But if you are not able to sell your D2E epoxy drive, the DriveKey modchip would be more cost effective way of modding your machine if an installer is not in your area as well.

The Wii DriveKey uses a totally new way to talk to the Wii acting as pass-through to the DVD drive and emulating & patching certain functions to disable region encoding and more, these amazing little devices will work on any Wii console anywhere in the world, there is no having to worry about checking serial number to know your drive type, or having to open the console to check if you have epoxy or not, if the whole chipping thing is a little overwhelming to you and you just want to buy something that you know will work with your console without having to do a little research checking your drive type and if you have epoxy or not, the DriveKey mod chip is it. No matter where you are you can be assured that the Wii DriveKey will work with your system, for people new to chipping their machines this can be a blessing. Being made by the most famous team that brought us chips such as WiiKey v1, v2 & D2Pro you can be assured that this product will have the same great level of support and reliability of their previous products.

How do you use the Wii battery pack?

I got a Nintendo Wii for Christmas last year. I am trying to charge my Wii remotes. I have two remotes. I am trying to find out how to use the battery pack. Can you use the battery pack? How do you use it? Also, is there another way to charge Wii remotes?

Do you have rechargeable batteries or a Wii charger kit? Because you can’t charge your Wii remotes with the standard equipment included with the Wii. You have to either –

#1 – Put fresh batteries in the Wii – either new batteries, or buy rechargeable AA batteries with a charger.

#2 – Buy a Wii remote charging station. This is probably the “battery pack” you are referring to. The battery pack is inserted in place of the AA batteries, then the whole remote is inserted in a charging dock to charge.
