    Probably about a year ago I modded my Wii to play backups of my games on a hard drive, but I hadn't touched the system in who knows how long. I recently decided to use my 2TB hard drive for my computer, so I was just going to start using disks again, as well as buying some games. When I put DVDs in the disk tray, they spin for about 10-15 seconds and the Wii says that it cannot recognize the disk. I'm assuming that I either need to clean the lense or just replace the DVD drive, which I could easily just do myself, but is there anything else that could possibly go wrong?

    Since the drive is only about 25 bucks on Ebay (IIRC), I was just going to buy that in case the lense cleaner didn't work, but I just wanted to confirm that there couldn't be anything internally wrong. I was at a fully modded 3.1u with all the new IOS files, but I updated to 3.4u to see if that would solve any problems and it didnt work. Thanks for any advice.

    I did have all the updated IOS files, but then as I said the most recent thing I did was update to 3.4u so shouldn't everything be updated regardless?

    Thats true.. I updated them before I upgraded to 3.4, so idk if they are still there, but even Wii Sports doesn't work. The dick spins, and it doesn't know what it is
