Can you swap a drive from old Wii into a New one so drive can play backups?
Hi all I've home-brewed two Wii's recently and both work fine.
However on my old Wii you can play backups from disk but not with my new Black Wii.
Can you just swap the drives over or do you have to do something else too?
Many thanks all
I don't think so. you have to swap out the drive controller on the mainboard.

and also i think with the new boards they have what the 360 had for the drive and the motherboard having keys that had to match and that is a pain....
just usb load - much easier

If you want a black wii so bad see about skins or painting it.
Yeh I've flashed a few 360 I had feeling Wii might be similar.
I use USB just wondered.
I just bought a LU666xxx wii and swapped in a D2b drive from an old wii. Installed the lastest Drivekey and it will not work at all. No menu, no play any type of disc. Maybe my Drivekey is DOA. No lights.
