Internal Hard Drive - Wii Hack
Internal Hard Drive - Wii Hack by Deynet
Deynet has successfully installed a Samsung HS120JB 1.8" IDE/PATA with zif connector mini hard drive into his Nintendo Wii. What's cool about this mod is the fact the 120GB hard drive is directly wired to the Nintendo Wii's USB port allowing you to use it as a mass storage device.
Additionally, due to the small form factor of the hard drive Deynet was able to keep the Nintendo Wii's DVD-ROM drive intact. We'll have more details about this hack soon along with detailed diagrams on how to do it yourself.
