WODE not being read

Post by vinzanity » Wed Jul 20, 2016 11:24 am

Guys I used a breakout board to install a wode on my Gamecube. I wired a switch for the eject and grounded the lidswitch. I tool 3.3 v from the regulator but for testing purposes, I took the 5v from a usb connection (Portable DVD player). My problem is that the reads are 0 so it doesn't seem like the mounted ISO is being read by the unit. Also the second LED is always blue instead of blinking. I hope someone can assist me in finding what is wrong so I can finally close this Gamecube up.

lid switch is not suppose to be connected to GND
properly connect lid pin on wode to GC lid pad

Oops. Thanks for the info mega. I just checked and i didn't connect it to GND, only the eject button was. Anything else i can look at? Why does the blue led stay still instead of blinking?
