Odd DVD Drive behaviour post-drivekey install
I`ve recently cracked open my brand new wii with 4.2u; booted it up once to complete the initial setup than tossed in the new nsmb drivekey. Since, my drive has been acting up. I`m not sure if some screws were too tight, too loose, or if it has to do with how the drivekey folded in the ribbons slightly props up the drive.
1. Upon powering on the wii with no disc inserted, you can hear the drive attempting to receive a disc, hence the motor is spinning and trying to suck in a disc that is not in the port. This continues for up to 6 seconds, the sound then reverts for a moment, 2 seconds, while it seems it is now trying to eject a disc, and than continues with the original pitch of receiving a disc for another 6 seconds. This surely is not good for the motor.
2. Secondly, once the wii is booted up and quiet, it will not take in a disc. The only opportunity I get to insert a disc is while it is going through the mentioned cycle above on startup.. very annoying.
3. When there IS a disc in the drive, a simple pressing of the eject button yields no result. Often I have to press and press and press it and finally the disc will eject. Alternatively, I have found that should I press the eject button, then pickup and turn the wii sideways, the disc will eject.
Despite the issues, originals play perfectly well while I have yet to test a proper backup.. Prominent release of Metroid 3 fails to be read and this, I believe, is due to it being a patched iso (as far as I know it is)
Edit. Will have the wii apart tonight to confirm whether it contains the blasted d3-2 chipset.
