    Us Wii with 4.3U but my disk reader doesn't read any games. Can I still mod this?

    basically I bought the wii when it first came out, Over the last 2-3 months when you put a game in it made a horrible sound, but still played. Then it just stopped reading disks altogether. It won't even show the picture of the game at the intro screen.

    I took a can of air duster to it, and it now reads the disk and displays the game, but if you select the game, it tries to spin up the disk and gives an error.

    First off, I don't have a tool to open up the wii to try and clean the laser. So I assumed, hell just mod it and be done with it.

    It seems though if I have 4.3U, that I need a game disk to make the mod happen. So is there a way to mode a 4.3u without the disk reader working?

    Thanks for any help or feedback.

    Where do I get one of those 3 prong screw drivers, or is there another trick to removing the siding myself (aside from king konging it off)

    If you get a small flathead screw driver you might be in luck... but ordering the tri-wing is the best bet!!!
