Reason I ask is that my Wii has gone loco on me. While some games are still working, many games are causing the disc drive to start chucking out some scary clacking noises, as if something is flapping about a lot in there, causing constant errors. The same game will fail at the same point each time. I've tested several discs, including a retail and backup version of the same game (Grand Slam Tennis). One disc, Wii Music, causes the problem as soon as the drive tries to read the disc. Others, e.g. Grand Slam Tennis, cause the problem from the initial launch screen, while others still manage to get into the game menu system before it happens (e.g. Michael Jackson, Abba, SSBB). But other games, eg. EA Sports Active, Just Dance 2, seem to be working just fine. So either my disc drive is having difficulty reading a particular section of any disc and depending what disc it is the problem will occur at different times depending on what data is stored on the difficult to read section of the disc... ...Or this is actually a weird software fault caused by my latest update of Homebrew Channel (where I also installed USB Loader GX and several other WADS) which just happens to give symptoms like a hardware fault. I'm sure the problem is not the discs themselves cos it's suddenly happening on just too many to be a coincidence, and I tried my retail Grand Slam Tennis in my non-modded Wii U and it worked fine. Can anyone help me diagnose this one way or the other? For what it's worth, I'm running Wii System 4.2E, using IOS58v.24.31, and I don't think I had this problem before I recently updated Homebrew & installed USB Loader GX etc., but I might be wrong on that, or it could just be coincidence.
