Freeloader Mania - Three new versions available and put up to a test. Which version is suitable for your console?


With arrival of the Nintendo Wii™, various reports about compatibility of Datel's popular Freeloader device have been made. We have now received brand new Freeloader supply, available in one old (+three new versions) and have put all of them to a test.

Please make sure to check your console model when placing your order to ensure that the Freeloader indeed works without problems.

Please be reminded that the Freeloader only enables import game playback of Gamecube™ software and is currently not suitable for Wii™ software.

= Works
= Does not work
= Not yet tested

Remarks:

1.) Test results marked with (*) have currently not been performed by us due to unavailability of DOL101 model Gamecube™ machines. However they are based on various reports made by customers in the past and based on our experience. We will redo tests on DOL101 Gamecube™ models once available to us.

2.) Japanese and Multi Version Freeloader appear to be identical, apart from their packing. Multi Version Freeloader will be phased out and are soon to become unavailable as soon as we have run out of stock.

3.) The PAL Version Freeloader features a new interface. We believe it will be likely that Datel is going to revise their Japanese and US Version Freeloader with the new interface in the near future but do not have further information available at present.

4.) DOL101 Gamecube™ models are the new models, which no longer include the built-in Digital Out Port (for connecting a Gamecube™ Component or D-Cable). You can also find the model number on the label at the bottom of your GameCube. DOL101 model machines were not available to Play-Asia at the time the tests have been conducted. We will update our test results as soon as those models become available to us.
