my mate asked me to have a look at his wii after it stopped loading disc's, and it seemed to have scratched up wii resorts and mario kart!!
and i found a 20p and 5p in drive also a old dvd rammed backwards into drive, apparently there 3yr old fault,
the drive wont accept any discs at all makes a cracking noise, it does if you push a little harder than normal after a few attempts accept the disc it only goes in 3/4 and starts spinning, kinda like when u eject disc normally, i really think it's the drive that's fubared because the menu still comes up and all the wad games work,
is there any way to replace just the drive?? if i were to remove all soft mod and make virgin how much would nind charge to fix drive??

You can replace the drive. You could buy a drive for around $30. You could also buy a bricked wii and use its drive $20-60.
If the wii is still working, I would just run the wii through our softmod guide again, then load games from usb.
