Put Bricked DVD drive in working Wii to fix?
I do not know what happened to my Wii kids did something when gone, got BSOD. FW 3.2U and original wii launch model. I can manage to get to the recovery menu but chip was not set to autoboot and no priiloader and of course no backup NAND. Is it possible to restore the DVD drive or system menu (I'm assuming that corrupt system menu is likely the culprit as I can get to recovery menu with savemii) by putting drive in working system?
Thought it might be bluetooth module so replaced that and still BSOD. I am reluctant to buy new autoboot chip or reinstall as I really have no way of knowing what happened or whether it can be fixed an Id rathenon booting chip just replace the drive with new board and softmod to usb HDD.
I was wondering if can put in working Wii (I hav black Wii with 4.2us softmodded) to update with newer real game or save somehow?
Any suggestions to see if wii can be saved would be appreciated.
Thanks...still wondering whether I can pop it in another wii though
No Bootmii installed, forgot to mention...thanks for the suggestions. i will try bliepo suggestion when i get home. i was hoping could pop in other wii to restore if possible but if can not i will not bother.
