The Wii Drive Chip Database will hopefully make it easier to identify the DVD drive chip model in your Wii console before you open it or buy one. By collaborating details about the Wii, it's possible to get a pretty good estimation of the controller model by just providing the serial number. New controller models can also be easily tracked this way. The information on this site is submitted and maintained by its users. To contribute details you have to open the Wii. -

2010-03-18: A new drive has been discovered, a new re-designed DVD drive with a smaller circuit board. Untill further details has emerged I'll wait a bit before adding the new drive to the site.

2010-04-17: The new drive with smaller circuitboard is now added to the submission form, dubbed the D3S (s for small). Please update or submit your drive if you own one of these. Thanks!

2010-05-09: A new photo from the underside of the IC on the newer smaller circuitboard has been posted, and it's officially called the GC2-D4. I've changed all references to D3S and the latest drive revision is now called D4. Please use this modelnumber from now on.
