    Noisy Wii Drive

    Here's the scenario.

    I have a D2B Wii and installed the WiiKey with Wii-Clip. On certain backups (such as BoomBlox or The Bigs for example) the drive is loud. So much so that you can sometimes hear it over the volume of the game.

    My friend recently bought a D2C Wii and installed the D2Pro9 modchip. His runs silent compared to mine (we tried the same exact backups of Boomblox and The Bigs and it ran quietly).

    My question is why is my Wii louder than his? Is it the drive model, the modchip or possibly a bad installation? I'm just worried that I'm dramatically reducing the life expectancy of my Wii by making it work harder to read backups.

    well remember your wii is getting old....so after a time the wii needs some TLC i.e servicing etc. Did you install the wiikey in your system or someone else?
    Thanks everyone for the great support.
    Hope to hear from you soon, cause i'm getting ready to retire from the modding scene.
    Gonna start a new profession.

    The thing is my Wii is really not that old (about a year). Yes I did perform the installation myself. It simply snapped in with the Wii-Clip and I had the vendor solder the Wii-Key on the Wii-clip so I'm not sure what could be wrong. Any other ideas?

    Do you have a Wii Key and a D2B Wii as well? Do you have The Bigs and if so, does it make the same noise?

    i have a D2C

    No i havent bought The Bigs. it must be just the programming because i think resident evil 4 and supermario galaxy use much more resources than boom blox. excellent game though isnt it??

    Yeah it's good If it was the game though, why is it louder on my Wii than on my friend's Wii. Doesn't make any sense.

    It could be the way how the game makers program the the game disc to spin

    Have you tried to loosen the screws that hold the drive onto the wii, I tried this and it seemed to work for me.
