Seriously. I fixed a broken axle in my Wii's disk drive recently (its a JPN Wii so sending it back to Nintendo wasn't an option) and while my repair has held, I guess when the gears were grinding themselves when the axle broke weakened the teeth on one. It stopped working again and when i disassembled this gear had a broken tooth: I know its unlikely anyone could help me, but can't hurt to ask. Somebody has to have botched their mod enough to create a paperweight. Thanks.
