    Does anyone know a modchip that's easiest to install and has 100% Gamecube compatibility with backups? That's all I care.

    At this point, just about all of them. I have the d2Pro with the solderless connection and it works great.

    Please Note: DriveKey is designed to modify your Wii game console. However, Wii was not designed with DriveKey nor any other mod chip in mind. While every effort has been taken to ensure that DriveKey is compatible with a broad range of media and drives there is no guarantee that any given media or game will work on a specific drive. There are a number of factors beyond the scope of DriveKey functionality that affects media compability, such as the laser diode and other internal circuitry in the DVD drive.
