What a predicament... I purchased an nr reader on eBay that said it was 100% functional, however as the story is unraveling, it seems to be less than 100% functional. The seller has offered to get it repaired, but I’m not sure if him or his guy know how to repair it. So I’m preparing to take this thing as is. He says the problem is the motor in the disk drive, it’s not spinning the discs. (However I suspect he may be putting an NTSC disc in the pal nr Reader.) I am no stranger to the inside of a GameCube, however this isn’t exactly a GameCube. I know how to test a GameCube to see what is potentially wrong, but which parts am I able to switch with a regular GameCube if something is wrong? I know the laser is absolutely different from a standard GameCube. Is everything else interchangeable?
