These chips are most commonly used for run copies of original games (most of the time illegal ones), but they did also play an important role in the early stages of Wii homebrew development. A drivechip can be used to run GameCube homebrew on the Wii, and if you haven't updated to system menu 3.3, [[Signing bug|fakesigned]] Wii homebrew.
Most drivechips are hard to find nowadays, since most of the functions for a drivechip can now be emulated via homebrew. However, a drivechip may be needed if you have a banner[[System Menu]]-bricked Wii with no [[BootMii|BootMii]] or [[Priiloader|Priiloader]].
