    I want to place a Wasabi DX modchip in a new Wii family edition. But there's a D4 drive in it, is it posible to replace the entire drive with a D2B model and place the modchip on that one?
    Or will there be a problem with the drive because there are no GC ports on the Wii?

    AFAIK, you should be able to swap in a D2B drive with a modchip. If you're planning on connecting the Wasabi Zero via the drive cable, it will be limited to 3x read speed just like a softmod, so there's not much of an advantage over a softmod. A wired install will allow full 6x read. Any reason why you don't want to go softmod and USB loading? There's little reason to use discs at this point.

    Also, if you have a D2B drive, Wiikey v1 is probably cheaper than Wasabi Zero.
