    Why did you disconnect the ribbon cable? Only the power needs to be removed then you just flip the drive over...

    i did the same thing, almost exactly lol. i might have to just buy a new ribbon if thats easier. also the piece on the system is chipped on one side so i have to use some kind of glue to get it to hold. [​IMG]

    how would you get access to the other side of the ribbon, take the whole unit apart? and do you know which ribbon you'd need to buy?

    If it s anything like mine, you can still fix it. Get it removed SAFELY

    Then, use your hand to try to hold it in and lined up to test if a game will read

    This may take some time to figure out the "sweet spot"

    Once you get the hang of it, goto staples and buy the hot glue there for $6 (works fine)

    Get it in the "sweet spot" and put a tiny amoiunt of glue on each side, just enough to hold it down

    Make sure you hold the ribbon tight for atleast 1 minute while the glues drying completely

    Once you get it lined up right, you can go back and add "reinforcement" glue

    If you fuck it up, just use the hot tip to heat up the glue, then pull the ribbon off. Let the glue cool again and you can pull it off.

    DO NOT DAMAGE THE RIBBON WITH THE HOT TIP

    This is all I can tell ya... I got mine working!

    Oh, and next time you decide to solder your $250 system and $50 modchip, dont say "this is all I got" cuz you could goto almost ANY store and get a $5 hot glue gun, would be more than worth your time
