if your GC doesnt have a regulator board and the power cable (1 BLACK and 1 RED wires ended on a small white connector) was connected directly to your GC MOBO, you are one of those lucky guys wich owns a rev C GC board, the GC board have an integrated regulator board, so you can skip the regulator board reallocating steep of the guideVirtual Boy wrote:Where is the regulator board supose to be?
i can not find
Rev C Mobos allways help to get smaller GCp
well, you can try, btw there is a lot of chance about your DD will not read the DISKs, cause the optical drives are very sensitive to changes, this means if you modify the motor, the disk speed can change and reading data may not work fine.Tchay wrote:Can I replace one of the motors in the disc drive with a smaller one (from my CD player). I am talking about replacing the motor that spins the cogs to make the laser scan up down along the disc.
btw, you can try, and post results
if the results are not good, just solder again the old motor the get the DD back to life
I would be a nice idea .CronoTriggerfan wrote:Great guide, someone remind me to sticky this when it's completed!
