This just ruined my day. I was setting up my Wii, and I lost grip on it and dropped it. I set it up to see if it was okay, and it turns on and works, but now it can't read any disks at all. I go to the Disk Channel and it says "Unable to read the disk." It makes funny noises trying to read a disk when you insert a disk or turn it on with a disk in it. What can I do? Nintendo will charge $75 for a repair if I send it in to them. Are there cheaper alteratives? How cheap and easy is it to replace the disk drive myself? Should I just let Nintendo do it since I dropped it and there could be other problems, or is it just the disk drive for sure? Also, I have the Homebrew Channel, the Backup Loader Channel, DVDx, custom IOSs and the like installed on my Wii. If I do send it in to Nintendo, then can I just delete them from the system menu and Nintendo will not see that they have been used? DVDx has its own uninstaller, and I can use Wad Manager to uninstall the Backup Loader Channel, but the HBC has no uninstaller. I guess there is Anytitle Deleter. That would probably be the safest. How would I deal with the cIOSs though? Would it matter to Nintendo?
