    Question A few questions about replacing dvd drive

    First of all , great forum. The tutorials here helped me softmod my wii no problem. My issue is with my dvd drive. I cannot get the thing to read anything and have tried everything I could find to try. I have just decided to replace it. I have 2 questions.

    1. which model should I get. As far as I can gather I have a GC2-DMS. does it matter what I put in as far as GC2-D2B or GC2-D2C or should I get a GC2-DMS? If it doesnt matter are there any advantages to any of the drives?

    2.Will the new drive affect my softmod? my guess is no, but I defer to the experts

    Us Hello

    You must use the same drive! $60 on ebay!! Very easy to change!! Look it up on you tube, if you are not sure how to open it! Very easy!! Also order the 4 screw drivers if you dont have them! You will need them! You can also check what CD drive you have by entering in your serial# on the wii cd drive check list! If you have any other Questions, message me and I can help you out! After you put the new drive in you'll be back in buisness!!! If I helped you please send thanks!!

    thanks for your help. I have already had my drive out, checking the connections and trying to adjust drive height. Easy indeed . I already have the triwing screw drivers from A DS case replacement I did a while back. I appreciate your help.
