    Ok so my Wii drive is dead. Mine was a Japanese Wii with D2C modchip installed. It was working flawlessly for around 1 month and today when I inserted a game to play, the drive won't detect the disc. The console works perfectly but can't play any games. Any suggestions?

    Oh yea, I cannot send this back to Nintendo coz I live in India. And was bought from Taiwan.

    Try if it reads original discs. It might be that some of the modchip wires got disconnected.

    @ Puxel & epicelite: I have to try this if my local repair guy is not able to make it work.

    @raulpica: I also hope that only modchip is affected.

    @tomqman: It doesnt solve the issue. Still getting a question mark.

    @skawo96: I really don't wanna lose it like this. [​IMG] It really hurts.

    BTW, when I start my Wii, the drive attempts to start and boots up properly. But when I insert a DVD, the drive doesn't read at all. I cannot feel the vibration which was earlier when I played the games.
