Drivespin up issue d2pro9
I installed my d2pro9 last summer and was able to play my backups fine for about a month.. I didn't do any official updates at the time because i needed to read up on them first. Well, after a couple months I started having drive issues and then i got frustrated and my wii collected dust for a year.
Here i am now, no wii updates, but i did the 11/08 d2pro9 update last year. Still having drive spin up issues so bad i can't play most of my games and rarely the store bought games. I have to power down, and it will only attempt to spin if i give it a little slap on the outside of the box...this seems to work for zelda and sports, but not my backups. Does this mean something is loose, since it responds to a whack? But even that is temperamental, as in it will only do it once per boot, otherwise i have to do a full power down to repeat it.
I see all sorts of different drive spin issues out there, but i have no clue as to what to do about this or even what to look for. I got a whole month of use out of my wii and it is such a headache -- what could i possibly do at this point? Could it be the "blown fuse" issue some have attributed to a bad solder job? Or something more directly related to the chip itself?
