Last night, a friend and I attempted to install a WiiKey clone with a wire method. He's a fairly experienced electronics dude, and I'm pretty sure that nothing happened to be bridged. But, after we got everything installed, we plugged everything back in (including the two cables that connect to the drive), the Wii started – and had no sound output, and the UI's graphics were beyond sluggish. But, after a few seconds of that, the machine shut off suddenly. With a little poking around, we found that the machine would turn off immediately. After further poking, we troubleshooted and found out that the machine works fine without the DVD drive attached. Additionally, the drive wouldn't accept discs at all. When powered on, it made clicking, whirring noises that sounded like the laser was attempting to focus hardcore. Has anybody seen a problem like this before on the Wii? Did we maybe blow a fuse? I have a launch-day console, by the way.
