    Noise when playing backup

    I backed up my ncaa college football and it plays fine but it sounds like its having a hard time reading my game. Alot of noise from the wii. Is this bad, should i try to backup again?

    Dude, I had this before WITHOUT using backed up games and it simply was a bad DVD drive in the Wii itself. I sent it in to Nintendo within the first year and they replaced the drive for me, free of charge obviously. Does it sound like a grinding noise? Mine did and that's what it was for me.

    It looks like the drive's mechanism got warped after a while of gameplay....probably the way how the metallic parts are made...very inferior. hmmmmmmmmmm interesting

    When i start to play dvds on mplayer it make this loud screeching noise for 2 seconds and then play. I think it is nothing to worry about.

    That is when the laser is calibrating itself to read a video file, cause video files tend to make the laser overpower itself to read the piece of data. And it also spins up the disc so much it tend to skid in the hub too.
