    3 Players Max?

    Hi all, I am new here and I'm hoping you all can help me.

    I recently replaced the dvd drive in my wii due to some loud noises the old drive would make when a disc was inserted. I installed the new drive and it plays games great. All was well until I tried to play a 4-player game, and realized that my wii will now only see 3 wii remotes. I have 5 remotes total, and no matter what order I turn them on in, the 4th one never works. In the add remote window, when I press the buttons on the 4th remote to activate it, the remote icon lights up for a second then goes gray again, and the remote powers back off.

    I am not sure how changing the drive would have caused this problem, but I had no problem connecting 4 before I did the swap. Should I take the system apart again and look for loose connections? Any help would be appreciated.
