    Who cares. Softmod doesn't cost anything and is better (USB HDD etc.)

    I beg to differ. 'Backup Launchers' never have 100% compatibility and are very loosely tied, really.

    At least with a chip it can't be blocked and it's there forever.

    Anyway, to the OP...I have a WiiKey 1 on a Wii-Clip. Look at www.ozmodchips.com (Australia) and www.modchipcentral.com (here's a WiiKey 2 on a Wii-Clip) which basically clips onto a chip on the motherboard. You'll need a Triwing and a Philips screwdriver to get into the thing, so they're bundled.

    So yeah, definitely get a chip if you want to run copied games.

    Hardmods will void your warranty. If you do a good, clean job, there won't be any evidence that the warranty was voided. (Just remember to do a clean removal of the modchip if you send it to Nintendo!)

    Popular solutions that work on most Wiis are the WiiKey 2+clip and the Wasabi Zero. For D3 drives, your only options are the DriveKey, Flatmii/Flatmod, and Wasabi DX.

    Soft mods will also void your warranty, especially in Europe.

    I'd also recommend using a Wii-clip, as there is no physical soldering to your Wii it just clips in. I've used a D2Pro for over a year now with no issues at all. Every game I've tried has worked without issue.
