    Gentlemen, I have a slight issue that I hope someone can help with:

    I disassembled the Wii with no incident, soldered on my chip, and was trying to close it back up when I realized I couldn't get the white (I'm assuming DVD-drive power?) cable to sit securely in its mate. Meh, I figured, just sit it in there somewhat and we'll be fine. Well, come to full reassembly and attempting to insert a DVD drive, and... you guessed it, the Wii resisted like a infant at feeding time.

    Now, there's no obvious damage to it, and it came out like butter, so I didn't figure it would need to clamp down or anything, but I assumed there would be some sort of reassuring feeling when plugging in this cable, much like it's neighbor, the data cable.

    The part of the cable (barely) showing the metal connectors supposed to be face down, right? Is there anything I could possibly be doing wrong? Anyone else have this issue?
