    Rev Identify the DVD chip using the Wii's serial number

    Vixen posted a way of identifying what Wii you have for those worried about modchip compatability

    Heres goes:

    Identify the DVD chip using the Wii's serial number

    Forget about the purchase date or the checksum digit in the box.
    It seems the first part of the serial number holds the key to knowing if you have the incompatible D2B chip or not.

    Check your serial number against the tables below.

    Europe

    GC2 - DMS or GC2R - D2A
    - LEH 100XXXXX
    - LEH 101XXXXX
    - LEH 102XXXXX
    - LEH 103XXXXX
    - LEH 104XXXXX
    - LEH 105XXXXX
    - LEH 106XXXXX
    - LEH 107XXXXX
    - LEH 108XXXXX
    - LEH 109XXXXX

    GC2R - D2B
    - LEH 109XXXXX
    - LEH 109225XX
    - LEH 1100XXXX
    - LEH 1104XXXX

    For European models it seems the D2B chip was introduced somewhere in the LEH 109XXXX number range.


    North America

    GC2 - DMS or GC2R - D2A
    - LU 100XXXXXX
    - LU 103XXXXXX
    - LU 104XXXXXX
    - LU 1050XXXXX

    - LU 303XXXXXX
    - LU 304XXXXXX
    - LU 305XXXXXX
    - LU 306XXXXXX

    - LU 503XXXXXX
    - LU 505XXXXXX
    - LU 5074XXXXX

    GC2R - D2B
    - LU 1054XXXXX

    - LU 3072XXXXX

    - LU 50853XXXX
    - LU 5089XXXXX

    For North-America it appears that there are three different ranges in use (LU1/LU3/LU5). Its possible that each range is used in a different area, factory or language pack.
    Each range will have a number where the D2B chip is introduced.
    For LU1 this seems to be between LU 1050XXXXX and LU 1054XXXXX.
    For LU3 its between LU306XXXXXX and LU3072XXXXX and
    for LU5 its somewhere between LU 5074XXXXX and LU50853XXXX.

    Keep in mind that it is possible that there are different factories or production lines that use different stocks. Therefore the above tables could be wrong at some points. However, so far the serial number seems to give a reasonable indication of what chip is inside your console.

    Please post if you have a serial number that can narrow these ranges and you can confirm the chip type.

    That DVD chip table is useful to see.
