    Yes they will remove homebrew and charge you a hefty fee for removal of the "unauthorized software" from what I've read (although they should give you an option to pay the fee or send it back to you untouched). If you have to send it back you want to at least attempt to "virginize" it, but their checks may even be able to detect logs left behind that ATD, etc can't/don't clean up.

    You could try buying a disk drive off Ebay and replacing your old one with it. Or buy a bricked Wii and swap the drives.

    EDIT I'm pretty sure you won't be caught actually since ninty won't be able to check for hax as it appears they use a disk to do so http://hackmii.com/2010/04/check-disk-for-...repair-process/ and even if they do i doubt they'll take it off "They even have the option of deleting all of this stuff — but it seems that they’ve been told not to do this (remember, they claimed they can’t, and in fact, they didn’t before our friend got his Wii back)."

    They won't charge a fee if its completely bricked. I sent in my fully bricked Wii twice and both times they didn't charge me anything.

    I heard they are more likely to charge you for it now
    But I dunno if that's also for full bricks...

    Surely the solution is to buy another SD card and USB hard drive and never ever use the DVD again?

    Well if they charge you for it, then say "What, I never heard that you can't use Homebrew!"

    Out of curiosity, why was an SD card in the disc slot again?
    But I don't believe Nintendo will do too much. Just have a little extra cash ready just in case.

    mm dyslexic means you cant read or write words properly, seeing the difference between a small SD card slot and a fairly large disk slot is something different...........stupidity lol

    To be honest, if I was in your situation, I would try to fix it myself, and it that failed, I would just buy a new Wii.

    I know plenty of people that have Wii's in their house and don't use them. You could find a cheap used one, then just re-hack it.

    I'm a little paranoid, but if I had hacked a system, I would never send it back to them. Even if I took all the hacks off. Just in case they could check to see what you previously installed on it.

    ROFL. Apparently he has a "bad eye eye" and decided to put the SD card into the disc slot. XD
