Re: Plug and play drive replacement adapter Idea

what if you made a spring clip on ? it slides over the dvd female connector on the board and spring legs connect to the legs on the dvd connector on the board. this would mean you could have a plugin well plug on adapter and could also convert the 5v in to 3.3/1.9 making it almost 100% solderless. t...

Re: good news and bad news....

no clue about wode or this audio fix.. but it does sound a bit like the wring wires or bad ground. Crackly and low sound usually means a bad ground or Really fat wires on audio systems for the most part, "stereo's amplifiers and so on" Either that or some residual static remains in a variable potent...

Re: is there a list of games that wont work if you shrink th

in that case is there a "best shrinking application" I think the one im using works pretty well to be honest. pretty sure all it does is remove all the dummy space. games like rampage become a few 100mb. but eternal darkness / resident evil stay almost the same size. dont really know what the 100 n ...

Re: How to "easily" wire to an FFC (Wiikey/WODE)

just thought id mention when i did this to a 32 pin ffc. i found it was easier not to split the ffc up witha knife 1st.. Cut it n expose the contacts and so on.. tape the ffc down to a workable surface. put the tape just above the area you exposed your contacts. (I taped cardboard down to a table. t...

I noticed the similar b...
