    Us No DVD drive power?

    Hey all i finally got around to putting the wiikey fusion in my wii and everything went well with the installation (except for me making the mistake of looking at the wiikey website for instruction on how to install the ribbon cable... yeah they suck at showing what way the cables need to go) good thing i found another tutorial showing the correct way to put them.

    Anyways, I updated the fusion firmware with 1.4 now and all seems to be good. However, the DVD drive seems to have no power now? When i try to insert a DVD it never takes it no matter how far i push it in? What could be causing this? Is this normal? Am i not able to use my DVD drive and the wiikey Fusion at the same time??

    Wii Console version = 3.3U
    DVD Drive = GC2-D2E

    Mine looked like this before I closed it back up.

    Spoiler


    The left side that says HOST goes to the base of the wii. The side that says DVD goes to the disc drive.

    Some people used the guide here to install it.

    Did you plug back in the power to the disc drive?

    Sometimes the only time you can put a disc into the wii is from a cold boot while you got the wiimote sync screen.

    I seem to have found the problem with it. If i have the SD card out of the reader and boot up the Wii the DVD drive works. It's only when i have the SD card in when booting that it turns off the DVD drive.

    Thanks for your time there, trikon000. It just so happens that it was your photo i ran across that showed me the SD ribbon connector needed the blue side up instead of down as depicted in the "official" tutorial over at wiikey. Idiots.

    <- WRONG WAY!!! Blue up!
