    Hey Guys,

    I'm in a bit of a fix. I wuz installing a modchip, which wuz no problem, but when I was closing the wii...I accidentally broke one of the dvd connector holders. I wanted to know if it is possible to get tht fixed or not. I checked and the rest of the system is fine and all I need is the DVD drive for the wii and if I can get one it shouldn't be problem for the rest of the system. Can any one tell me where I find a spare dvd drive for the wii :S. What should I do? I am so screwed!

    My advice is to find someone with a bricked wii and buy their spair parts or call Nintendo and tell them "I took the Wii apart and broke a cable off, how much does it cost to fix"

    You might be surprised at their response!

    Actually, Nintendo might confiscate your console if you blatantly admit you modded it ;)

    They can't do anything about it. It is perfectly legal.

    It isn't illegal. At least it isn't around here. It is only illegal if you play illegally acquired games.

    why don't you just take out the mod chip and call up nintendo and say that the dvd connector is broken?

    There isn't a sticker. But if you call them and tell them that the connector is broken it will be obvious you took it apart.

    look, Nintendo Wont " Confiscate" your Wii that is ****ing retarded you bought it and its your property lol. If anything else, Since your Warranty is Void now Send them an email asking What Drive is used and if you can get one from somewhere. Also try finding a broken Wii somewhere.

    As a final suggestion Just Solder the piece back in place. And if you dont know how go to a local computer store they might be able to fix you up ( unless you mean you actually broke the board on something. Im guessing you ripped it out where its soldered in place)
