    hey, i just bought a new wii, it should get here in a few days.
    i assume it will have a D3-2 drive, that cannot be modded.
    replacement drives are quite cheap, and i am wondering which one to get, say, if i could pick any one of them.
    if i get the first one DMS-A or something [​IMG] then it would be the most compatible etc, but, apart from blocking modchips, have nintendo made each drive 'better' than the last, eg quieter, smoother?
    since, a D2-E is the same price (where i saw, on ebay) and since it is newer, would it not be a better drive to install?
    thank a lot, any help is appreciated [​IMG]

    p.s. does any homebrew/hack install anything to the dvd drive? so, if i install all my region free stuff, i will be good to go, and not need to install again once i have replaced the drive?
    thanks again!

    I think the earliest drives have problems reading dual layer games like Brawl.

    Not true, I know lots of people with launch Wii's which can read SSBB perfectly fine.
