    DVD drive dead

    My DVD drive finally died (unhacked wii) Need a new drive as the drive takes in DVD's but doesn't load them. Since I saw a place that sell DVD drives with wiikey2 preinstalled I was wondering if that was a good option.

    No perfectly 100% never hacked. Put a dvd in there it spins for a while and asks you to reboot and refer to manual. I tried updating to current firmware, same results.

    If your trying to run a DVD (not a game) that won't work as the code that allows the Wii to read DVDs is locked and requires softmodding before it will work.

    Either ring Nintendo and see what they say or go ahead and get the drive changed.

    All depends on what modchip you want installed and the compatability of that modchip.

    Us $60 on ebay new dvd drive!

    $60 ebay! You can get a new one! Just make sure it is the same one you got! order the 4 screw driver set too!! It's very easy open the system and change it out, refer to you tube!! If you don't know which it is, use the wii drive generator and put your serial # in and it will tell you!!
