    Ok guys I've got a wii now with wiikey just after launch. For some reason now when I try a new burned game it gives me dre. I tried Star Wars Force Unleashed and just after the laoding screen it gave dre. That was with A Ritek G05 so I tried with another low brand disc same problem. I took it over to a friends house who got a wii with wiikey and it worked flawlessly.

    I did notice however my wii got knocked over to its side a few times. Is there anything damaged inside maybe? Im a bit mad now so Im thinking of selling it and buying a new wii. Or can I save it somehow?

    Thanks

    No, it's not because it isn't clean, the lens is damaged because it has been used to much with cheap media.

    You can buy replacment lasers( they arnt too expensive cheaper then a new Wii or drive) or im not 100% if it helps in these cases but you could try adjusting the laser POT and decrease the resitance(there are a few topics about this on these forums)
