I had an original Wii from 2008 or so it drive was making a lot of noise and the unit was getting hot. My kids did get a lot of use out of it! Any way I just purchased a like new blue Wii and want to Homebrew it so that I can use a hard drive instead of having all these disks laying about. I plan to use a 2TB WD USB drive and have it smashed full of games. I have been modding other things for years so I will take this challenge in stride!
