Hello there, I have a wii from launch and it currently bit the dust im sure the disk drive is fried. I was extremely depressed because my wii could do both neo gamma and wii flow backups. The wii still turns on but the disk drive cant read a disk worth a crap. So I understand the optical drive is what reads the back up games and my launch wii is the only kind of wii that can do that. Finding a wii optical drive is easy finding one from a launch wii is rather a larger challenge. So instead of buying a new drive i wanted to know what inside the optical drive allows my wii to do game backups. Also if anyone knows a site or a link to where I can buy a optical drive from a launch wii it would be much appreciated.
