Hello, I'm new to making portables and would like to make a portable gamecube (Using a Wii motherboard). I plan to use the SD slot for the wii to load games, but i also want the satisfaction and option of inserting a real gamecube disc. Is it possible for me to connect a gamecube disc drive to a wii motherboard? And is it possible for me to trim down the plastic of the disc drive and make it thinner?

Technically? Yes you can connect a gamecube dd to a wii. Should you? No, don't bother. The drive can't be made thinner, as the laser is huge (that's why it's so tall in the first place). It'll also be a pain to get working since you'll have to wire 20 wires to parts of the board that we trim off.
