Wii Disk Drive Burn-Out

Post by Ezlo on Fri Sep 24, 2010 8:22 pm

Well...My Wii disk drive has officially died. For about six months now, it's been making strange whirring noises. Three days ago, it finally stopped working. It refuses to read any disk, of any kind. I've had suspicions that it was going to happen for a while now, and it's finally happened. Anyone have any ideas what's going on with it? (we've already tried the disk cleaner thing. failed.)

They told me the same thing about my GCN. Although, unlike you, mine didn't really need it, and it still works.

Never try home repairs...it's like trying to operate on yourself, it's not going to work.
