    How hard is the fixable way? I checked prices for a new drive and its pretty expensive, I have no job. I have alot of time on my hands since summerschool didn't start yet, so is it pretty easy to trace the route and use wires? If not, I think i'll sell my old drive and buy a "refurbished" one.

    Did you not follow that link I sent you?
    You would be just fine with one of those..
    Plus if you are not confident with the laser on the refurbished one,
    you can always swap the board between then, & there u go..
    u got a new drive..

    If I buy a refurbished drive, the laser will most likely suck making me change it with my old drive? If so, is taking out the laser and replacing it easy?

    Like I said if u run into that problem, all u have to do is take the board of the refurbished
    drive and put on your messed drive.. & u are set ..that's really easy to do..

    And even better you can mod this drive with the WiiKey modchip,
    make sure it's a official Wiikey other wise not worth having it as
    you wont be able to play the new games such as Mario Galaxy, Mario kart & others..
    actualy the new batch of wiikey clones, are pretty much identical to the official wiikey, accepting all firmware updates, just upgraded mine to 1.9 and and just finshed playing mario kart about 20 min ago, and galaxy yesterday
