The ACTUAL component that prevents dvd reading on new wii's
Hey all, sorry if the title is a bit ambiguous but I'll let you know my situation.
I bought a black wii a few weeks ago and I'm loving it, best console of this generation imo (if you can forget about the specs). Anyway, of course it can't read video dvds.
I work at a PC shop and there's a wii that's just sitting in the back for a few years that someone just neglected to pick up. I was thinking of taking the drive from it and putting it in my wii, however I read the problem report and just my luck, the problem on that wii is that it couldn't read games.
So here's my question, does anyone know the exact part of the drive that has been removed or changed on the new drives to prevent dvd reading? If so, I could possibly simply swap the components to make the drive functional AND be able to read dvds.
