    Where does this piece go?

    I disassembled the wii and found this at my feet when I put it back together. Also, when I try to eject my disc, I get a loud buzzing noise for about 5 seconds and it stops. The disc does not eject.

    Any ideas?

    I would take apart your Wii again, and watch a tut video and look for anything missing.

    Unfortunately, those videos are not the best quality. I did not see it.

    UPDATE: The drive works properly now. The rubber band had popped off the pulley wheels.

    The plastic piece is still on the sidelines though. I can't even be 100% sure that it is from the wii. It does look like the same grade of plastic that is contained within the guts though..

    i believe it might be a piece that goes inside of the wii dvd drive, but if its working without it then perhaps just leave it be than trying to figure it out and ruining it. I'd hold onto the piece just in case.

    Ya, am inclined to leave it be for a bit and see what happens.

    I did take the silver metal cover of the dvd drive off so it probably came from there if at all. That is where the black rubber band came from..

    Thanks for the advice.
