Internal HDD Sizes for Wii
This question is for those of you who have done the SunDriver Mod and who knows a thing or two about HDD.
I plan on buying the SunDriver and a 2.5" internal HDD. My question is which HDD do I buy.
A 1TB 2.5" SATA Internal HDD is 12.5 mm thick
All other 2.5" SATA Internal HDD with less than 1TB of storage (for example 250GB, 500GB, 640GB, or 750GB) are only 9.5 mm thick.
I want to buy the 1TB 2.5" SATA Internal HDD, which is 12.5 mm thick, but my concern is that it will not fit in the wii console shell...meaning I won't be able to snap shut the plastic wii console when I install the 1TB hard drive.
I know not many of you who have a SunDriver will not have a 1TB, but for those of you who have a SunDriver and have a 250GB, 500GB, 640GB, or 750GB 2.5" HDD, does it appear that there would be enough space to fit a hard drive that is 3mm thicker than your hard drive? Normal hard drives are only 9.5 mm thick, hence the 1TB is 3mm thicker at 12.5 mm in thickness.
Please nobody say "Why do you want a 1TB, just get _____ instead".
I want the 1TB but want to know if it will fit before I purchase one.
Does anyone here have a 1TB HDD that they have tried? If yes, what did you find out?
Also, any recommendations from whom to buy the SunDriver from? Who is the cheapest dealer but still reliable from your own personal experience? Any suggestions?
Many thanks, KL
