    For those of you that have both a Wii and A Gamecube...

    Okay so I was thinking about going to buy a gamecube to hack it up, and it occurred to me, a gamecube would look a million times cooler with a wii drive.

    So here's my question... From what I have seen the connections for the DVD drive to the Wii are the same for the Disc reader to the gamecube... So doesn't that mean if I go and buy a replacment DVD drive (for Wii) and plug it into my Gamecube, will it work? Cause if the Wii can play gamecube games that means that the drive has no problem reading the games, and if it reads them just like a normal gamecube would, wouldn't this work?

    If anyone has any time or the equipment to test this, I would be greatful.

    I'm not gonna test it out, but if the connectors are the same then I daresay that would work, yes. Don't take my word for it, though :P Any wasted money/dead hardware is your own responsibility.

    So basically... you're trying to add a DVD drive... to your gamecube... Are you trying to make another system similar to a Wii?

    I explain a little more... I would be playing GC games on a GC through a Wii Drive connected to the gamecube.

    I'm going to figure this out.

    like gutting the wiis optical drive to plug it into the game cube?
    the optical drive only reads reflections off the DVD, the wii actually holds the Operating System to know what to do with that data...

    i'm guessing... do you have a dead wii on your hands you want to revive?
