What's your DVD Drive model? DMS, D2A, D2B, etc? (I'm guessing a D2B)

I've never heard of running a wire.. like that 1st diagram.

I've always read that all you have to do is rebuild the legs from the Wii's DVD Drive's chip.. Then solder your Wiikey like normal.

Not entirely sure though.

Notice in the second picture on that black chip with a billion legs..

How it says "GC2-DMS"..

That's where yours will be.

well that just sucks....I added this serial to the tracker. So this means this paticular dvd is not mod-able at all? or just with the wiikey?

You'll definitely hear about it on www.nintendo-scene.com.

But.... You'd probably hear about it first at www.wiinewz.com

Uhhh...you do realize that by rebuilding the leg all you're doing is attaching it to a trace (basically a wire) on the pcb...right? Whether you use the trace provided or your own wire, why would the result be different?

I know that. I was referring to a different wire in the 1st diagram.. indicated by a yellow square/rectangle/instructions/etc. I was pondering why you would need to run a wire from the Wiikey pad directly to the IC when the pad on the DVD drive is available for a normal install.

EDIT-
Looks like the PCB in the 1st diagram is of a D2C.. Because I know my DMS looked different..

Well if he has missing a pad that makes no difference, just use common since an follow the trace. As for the D2C, my bad I didn't pick that up in my scanning of the thread.
