    Then at this point it might be time to switch to an HDD and throw some ISO's onto it. At this point you could get a new Wii or you could find someone who could repair the motor but I'd just ditch the disc system altogether and move to using an HDD to play backups.

    You should still be able to load the latest CTGP off USB by using a *neek emuNAND.

    Are you sure you re-assembled it properly?

    You have three options:
    1) Go USB
    2) Buy another console (I've seen Wiis go as cheap as a replacement drive alone)
    3) Buy a replacement drive

    It's a shame you don't live near me, I'd sell you one of my 5 spare Wiis for $20
