    Stupid question, I know, but I have an original launch US wii (D2A?)
    And I'm not seeing any in shops, if I buy a D2B drive will it work in my wii?

    Thnx, Shadowboy

    I'm pretty sure it will, but why would you want to do that?

    DMS / D2A / D2B / D2C / D2C2 / D2E.... drives from any region will work in your wii... it's not an issue.

    A few mod shops sell replacement drives....

    http://www.ozmodchips.com/wii-partsrepair-c-7_40.html for one.

    The D2B drives are fairly hard to find (and easier to chip...)

    It'd be easier to just get a chip for your model.

    Easier than D2A? That doesn't make any sense...
