[WKF] Plug n' Play Diskdrive replacement

Post by _Nold_ » Sun May 06, 2012 11:35 am

Hi,

today i finally finished my Wiikey Fusion Diskdrive replacement... you just need to take out the normal DD and plug this one in and you're ready to rumble :D

The only thing that is missing is a nice switch for pin 29 ^^ but i trust into emu_kidid that he will make swiss autoboot anyway ;-)

So here is the worklog in pics :)


Glued SD- Slot...

3 layers of primer and 2 layers of color :)

Nice job, the SD card slot looks very professional 8-)

Bit worried about those solder blobs on the drive board plug connectors though. Have you tested for any bridged connections?
