    about every 10th time i put in a game (originals only here) it clicks and clicks and then eject disk and power off wii..

    but it's been doing since i bought it over a year ago, and no problems. did it 3 times in a row last night first time i put in SSBB, just got it yesterday.

    after the minor annoyance, it worked.

    Really? I would have sent it to Nintendo if it did that. So it's fine now?

    yup, it's random, not just on certain discs, and doesn't happen all the time. Occasionally it does, i was going to send it to ninty, but, at the time i was going to buy a modchip and i didn't wanna get sent one that didn't have yet a reliable chip.. and i knew nothing about modding wii's yet. and i got the extended service plan for the wii @ the store i purchased it from, so within the next couple years i can still hand it over to them and get a brand new one. (which i intend to do.. if i have to)

    but... then again.. it doesn't happen insanely frequently... oddly enough, it usually happens on my completely fingerprint-less and scratch free originals ( i take GREAT care of them ) and it has happened ZERO times on beat-up rentals.
