So I have an old Launch Wii that was fitted with a wii-clip/d2ckey. Through the course of the wii falling a couple times (kids!) the clip was loosened, which resulted in a couple re-fittings.. So the other day, we turn the Wii on and there's zero dvd drive activity. The Wii loads, but will crash with the 'An error has occured...' message if i tried to load wii-ware, vc, or and iso's via sd/usb. I can however run programs from the sd. Anyways, during one of the clip re-fittings, a couple legs were bent sideways, and the one on the very end broke off when i tried to bend it back with a pin..i know, dumb move question is, is the dvd-drive essential to wii operation, and is there any type of file/program that tells the wii to ignore the drive? i've tried totally disconnecting the dvd drive, the wii keeps crashin tho I'd be happy just ot run wii-ware and vc for now, problem is they all crash if i try to load em.. is it fux0red or can i just get a new dvd-drive icb? suggestions, folks?
