    Unhappy I screwed up.

    So, I've been trying to play two games, (New Super Mario Bros Wii, and Naruto Shippuden Clash of ninja revolution 3), and I needed IOS 53 and 53. I downloaded them, and put them, their names are, incase they're needed:

    IOS53-64-v4113.wad
    IOS55-64-v4633.wad

    After installing them, I used Gecko 1.92 to start Naruto, there was a small graphic glitch when I started gecko, but after I ran the game, the intro worked okay, everything seemed fine, but when I was expecting the start screen, the Wii started reading the disc again and making weird noises, I resetted the Wii, and now it can't read any discs.
    I tried deleting the IOS's or reformatting the Wii System memory incase it would help, but it doesn't. I have no clue on what to do and I can't send my Wii to Nintendo either cause I got this Wii on my birthday. What can I do?

    Incase it matters, my Wii's version is 3.1E, and on another note, whenever I start my Wii, the tune goes cut.(since I installed the IOS's, of course.)

    Wierd noises could be anything but it could actually be that the drive has fouled itself somehow. If the noises were just searchy type noises then it's nothing to do with this. If they were nasty sounding grindy noises then it could be terminal.

    Load through USB.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    What does the wii do when you hit power? Do you have boot2 installed as boot2? Do you have preloader? (Hold reset when you power on to see). What system menu and region are you on?

    I have a 3.70GB mem stick, I don't really think a giantzillion 4.7GB could actually fit in.
    And yeah, they were searchy type noises. It also used to do that whenever I put Aolim discs, dunno why.

    I'm pretty sure it's the drive, and yeah, I did try other discs.I did try Naruto again, I tried my original PAL Brawl disc, heck, I even tried an Aolim disc, to make sure it even tries to read it, but the drive just goes in a sort of "idle" state after I put the DVD's.It makes the regular noises, but it just won't go to the disc reading part.
    Also yes, I'm pretty sure I clicked "Format Wii System Memory". It even twitches yeeellow!
    And uh, what does waninkoko's updater do?

    Wanikoko's updater will bring you up to 4.1. It does sound like your thumb drive is the cause. I would go out and get another one and give it a shot. I went through about 4 or 5 before I found one that works great with good ripping speeds. You can always return it if you don't like it. Playing dumb works.

    There isn't any way to "fix" it?
    (Or maybe it can "fix" itself?XD)

    If your dvd drive in the wii is messed up then you're out of luck and updating firmware or anything like that will be useless. You could always get an external hard drive and load that way if nothing else. Does it make the weird dvd noises with all games and discs? If so then your dvd drive might have bit the dust somehow. (Honestly, I'm not really sure how this could happen because as far as I know the dvd drive firmware has no interaction with the wii other than 'hey load the disc...')

    I must agree that I'm out of luck, and it might have bit the dust because it's like, two years old or so. I also heard that IOS 53 and 55 don't really brick your wii or mess with it..
    So meh, at least I know what's wrong, and it only did those noises to aolim's..or whenever my friends "accidentally" put CD's. Happen'd only once, but it did a weird noise, and it was a long time ago..

    Could removing IOS 53 and 55 work?
