Transplant parts from New black wii to first gen white wii?
So my white wii first gen RVL-001 does not read discs anymore. I suspect it is the DVD drive that has crapped out on me and it sounds like it to. I decided to buy a new Wii because I still want to play my gamecube games and I believe it doesn't work either but thats at my parents house. So I didn't do any research and decided to buy the fancy new black wii. Turns out they don't play GC anything because Nintendo removed GC from it.
So now my question is, can I pop open both of these wiis and take a DVD drive from RVL-101 and stick it into a RVL-001? I don't have a soldering iron so I'm hoping I can just unscrew and disconnect the ribbon cables and call it a day. However I think it's much more complex than that.
I don't plan on playing burned backups as I have the discs and can always re-buy them. So not really worried about drive incompat. with burns.
