    I have a modded Wii with Wiinja Deluxe that has been working fine since I got it about a year ago. Today I went to switch games, but when I inserted the new one it took it but made a very wierd grinding sound. I immediately tried to eject it but all it did was make the grinding sound again and wouldn't eject the disk. When I went to play it, the game worked fine, however. I have a replacement case, so I can see the DVD drive. From what it sounds and looks like to me, when I hit the eject button it tries to eject the disk but the magnet won't release it. It was working fine a couple hours ago and hadn't been touched since. I think it happened once before, but after hitting eject a few imes it eventually came out.

    Any suggestions as to what could be causing this or how to fix it? I think I might try to take the Wii apart to see if I can get it to eject by lifting the magnet.
