I have a launch Wii that the DVD drive finally bit the dust. The gears on the side that load and eject the disc broke teeth off. I originally modded the Wii with a wiinja deluxe, then more recently, did a softmod following this guide: http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/ My questions are: 1. I have a DMS drive in there now (the broken one). Would I be OK buying a replacement D2A drive off ebay? I will not re-use the wiinja deluxe and only want to play backups and originals through the softmod. Basically, will the softmod have problems reading backups with a D2A drive? 2. Will I have to reinstall any softmods? I am asking this because I don't know if anything in the softmod process actually installs anything to the drive itself, and putting in a new drive will require me to re-softmod? Or does the softmod not install anything to the drive itself. 3. Does anyone want a DMS drive with a wiinja deluxe soldered to the board? Everything on the drive works except the load/unload mechanism. Will give away (except for shipping) to anyone who wants it. That is, if everything with the new one works out OK when I buy and install it. Thanks, Bryan edit... also I am on 4.2, does that change with the new drive, or is that separate also? I don't want the new drive to have a new (4.3) installed on it (if that is even possible)?
