I've noticed that a lot of the games I have played lately have had some music skipping. Muramasa: The Demon Blade only has been doing it when I move from screen to screen so that's not a big deal. I tried starting Red Steel 2 the other day and the ubisoft intro, the next intro and the opening movie are very skippy. I gave the game a try on a different Wii and it has the same issues. I don't think it's a drive issues because games still load up and I have had no disc read errors yet. Could it be a bad burn? Or is this just a matter of some games having drastic audio issues via disc? And yes, I'm aware of the alternative to running them USB or HD and that's probably what I will do for the bad ones.
