Hi I am taking apart my wii as per the instructions for my new case but I am having real trouble putting the DVD cable (not the ribbon cable) plug from the motherboard onto the plug on the DVD drive (as shown here: http://www.talismoon...oads/page-4.jpg ) - It just doesnt seem to go in at all, it goes in a tiny bit with the brass bits still showing but pops out as soon as I let go, it wont go all the way in

I've tried pushing it really hard, even using a screwdriver to push the little white plug very hard, but still nothing, I am worried I will break it if I try to force it too much too

Any suggestions please please, this is really annoying me it's pretty much the last problem before I can put the final top of the case on and play on my new wii (i bought the case and wii together but it came with default white one)

thanks for any help :S

It's the same bit as shown here, the second red-circled one on the right

I have been told it's possible a pin is bent, but I have no idea what the possible options are if this is true, no idea how I would straighten it out or where to buy an alternate cable plug/motherboard plug that is the same type as the wii
I don't know if this is the problem or not though, I really have no idea, because the plugs are so tiny you cant really see the pins inside them

I would also say the pins might be bent

look at the socket (the connector on the dvd drive) and use a light if you need to to see in and check the pins

also...are you sure your not putting the plug in upside down. on the side of the connectors there will be some guidance slots to make sure you put it in the right way
