    So, a little over a month ago I bought a Flatmii, set it up, everything was fine, both loading games from my computer, using the Flatmii, as well as running disks. Then, about a week ago, I started having problems with my Wii's disk drive - it won't accept disks. I'll push one in to the point where it would normally take it, but it does nothing. I can tell that the disk drive is, in the very least, still receiving power - the eject button works (though nothing comes out, obviously), and when I turn the Wii on, I can hear it working as it normally would when there's no disk in there (though, strangely, the noise it makes when I do lasts longer now, with it not working, than it has before). Booting games using the Flatmii still works perfectly fine, though.

    So I was wondering if anyone has had similar issues, either with or without a Flatmii, any potential solutions, or if there's anything I could use to better diagnose what the problem is... or anything. Hopefully my Wii isn't fucked, I decided I'd actually buy the Conduit in June, as opposed to downloading.

    I've had it not taking a disc in on its own happen a couple times before and I have a modchip installed but I somehow got it to take it soon after. Never had it throw an error like that though.
