    Well, I have been tryin to fix my broken clip for a few days now, I finally got a permanent solution!

    I held the ribbon down evenly and tighly in the slot it goes in, and put a little hot glue on each side of it. Once I verified it was reading discs i put some reinforcement glue on each side, put the shit together and it works now [​IMG]

    so happy! If anyone else has this problem, just make sure you fold the ribbon back when you put the dvd drive back upside down (or rightside up, whichever it is) - this will prevent your ribbon from coming loose again

    i know this wont help many people, but i woulda loved to have read this thread af ew days ago when I had my wiikey working but my dvd drive not reading unless i held the ribbon down myself!

    cheers!..

    oh and never remove the dvd cable again! [​IMG]

    Come on... just take the drive back out, rip out the cable, take some pics, then post six more threads about how you can't get it back in [​IMG].
