Does anyone know where the rumors that a particular disc type (+DL, +RW, -R etc.) "kills" the Wii's disc drive over time? Is there any evidence to actually support this? I'm inclined to call BS on the whole thing. A laser is a solid state device; unless it's horribly engineered, it shouldn't output at a power level that will actually cause damage to the diode itself within a reasonable operating lifetime (thousands of hours, at least). Now, if a type of disc is hard to read, causing excessive seeking, then yeah...I could see the stepper motor wearing out over time. But unless someone can prove me wrong, I don't believe this. Either a drive can read a disc, maybe barely, or it can't -- either its laser can read a disc with a certain reflectivity, or it can't. Right? I've got a couple of 10+ year old discmans that are still going strong, and a couple of PS1s that only needed a drop of lubricant on the stepper motor screw to bring them back to life. Has anyone tried lubricating a dead drive?
