    Soft modded wii no longer reads discs

    Hi all,

    A friend has asked me for some advice on his wii but I haven't switched my wii on for about 2 1/2 years so I'm hoping somebody can help.

    He has a soft modded wii that, untill recently, has played his backups (via disc) flawlessly. He has not changed any software/firmware on his wii but, all of a sudden, his wii has decided it doesn't want to play his backups. He doesn't understand about all the different loaders and things.

    He has asked me if I can fit a mod chip for him but after looking around the forums I suspect that this would be pointless.

    I'm thinking that his wii's laser has probably began to fail and is no longer strong enough to read his discs but I was wondering what you guys think?

    Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.

    Cheers,

    If he's getting Something like,Disc Read Error...Etc,Then maybe so.

    If this is the case,then he could go out and buy a cleaner for it.
    I would suggest loading through the Usb HDD.

    If all else fails ...Then the Next option would be to buy a new drive.

    Ok thanks.

    I've ordered a lens cleaner so I'll see how that goes!
