just want to say thanks to everyone for the help.
got my 8082 slim drive in and enclosure and of course the
d2sunv3 with wii clip.
plugged the drive in through usb and away she went.
backing up one of the kids games now.
chip went on smooth red light then green.
will give feedback after i try it out as I can hardly find any on this new
chip and figure that it may help in someones decision on a chip.
big thanks to canada mods and gmodz as these guys were great at answering questions that I had.
nice to hear everything worked out!
