    Thank you for your explanation. I have deleted your duplicate posts and was thinking of sending you to the Reading Room, but you posted your reasonable explanation.

    I would seriously consider your HDD compatibility, the freezing and noise with several games suggests your HDD is not working with the Wii. The other possibility is a sleep mode, a powering down of the HDD to save energy. Unlike the PC, the Wii does not send a signal back to the HDD to keep the drive from powering down or hibernating. If your HDD came with a utility disk-you want to disable the sleep or powerdown/ saving energy mode. If that cannot be disabled, set the sleep time to as long as possible.
