    well, do you have to unplug that stupid ribbon on the wii that everyone is talking about.

    or can i just leave the 2 parts connected and not even worry about disconecting and reconecting the ribbon/dvd cable.

    What's so hard about disconnecting a cable?

    If you can't disconnect a cable, it may be unwise to solder your Wii.

    There is absolutely no need to, as Edster said.

    Once you do it, you'll realize it is extremely easy and safe to do.
    Just slip your finger nail under the grey clip, on the ribbon side, then flip it up. Do not use sharp tools to do it.
    Once flipped up, the cable slides out without a problem and it is very easy to put back.
