    The Wii's are pretty flexible when modded. I'm not certain, but I believe save games and such could have been transferred via Save Game Manager (or whatever it's called). I dunno, never used it personally. The problem with NAND is there's a lot of data that pertains only to the Wii that came from; it's kinda like pulling a hard drive from one computer and sticking it in another. Not only are there a heap of hardware issues, but the software doesn't like that none-to-much either.

    The bestcourse of action now, is to pull the working drive out of the bricked Will and put it in the old Wii. Save the "new" one for parts or practice painting the case!

    Oh yeah I didnt think of that. I was originally just going to get the drive fixed in the old wii anyway but the laser alone cost $80 (Australian) and this new wii only cost me $100 and I got a control out of it so this might actually work out better. Thanks man feeling much better now and not like I just blew $100.

    You bet. Good luck. The drive's aren't too terribly difficult to take out, I've taken my Wii apart numerous times. If you've never done it before, here's some pointers.

    Draw your Wii on paper. Note every screw on the case. Label them, and then keep the screws separate in labelled compartments (I used a tackle box for this).

    You'll need some small tools. Buying a tri-wing screw driver will be your best bet, although a very small regular head screw driver will work as well, just be careful to turn slowly to break the "seal" first, and avoid damaging the screw head. I messed one up on the inside metal shield for the drive, and I had to dremel it out.

    Other than being organized and going slow, it'll be a piece of cake. Just don't try to take the drive assembly apart, just remove the metal shield and then there should be a couple of screws holding the entire assembly in place. Remove the old one first, just in case.

    Maybe the $80 is due to being in Australia on that Pob, IDK...

    The guy gave me some spiel about how hard it is to find the original launch wii drives and all that. He didnt seem too keen on fixing it actually. Yeah i might try doing it myself, doesnt seem to be too difficult. Thanks everyone
