    yes, the laser knows the difference between an original and copied DVD, so it may last at least 2-months before it stops working.

    So hopefully you bought another Wii system for backup.

    no really--- just don't buy cheap DVD's and the lens won't have to work as hard reading them, and also don't burn them at a high speed.

    Oh god. xDD!
    No, there's no threat for your Wii, only the fatigue of the optical laser, but the laser can be cleaned with a Dvd for clean, you can find it in Internet. The other way is to open your Wii and clean the optical laser by hand, but if you are'nt an expert i don't advise to do it.

    your wii will not break if you have good burns... just try to burn at half the speed of max of the dvd... dont buy cheap dvds... and If your that concern I suggest buying a new burner

    seriously, I dont think a wii would break in 2months because you have bad media. I think it would take WAY LONGER than that. Plus wii lens are only 50bucks, jeez think of all the money you already saved.

    Offtopic, but just by reading the title I already knew that you were either a Portuguese or Spanish speaker [​IMG]
    'duda' translates into 'question' in your title's case [​IMG]

    If you really that terrified that your Wii laser lens will burn up and fry because your using dvd "backups", you shouldn't be using the "backups"... use a REAL disc (that means, go out and buy the game).

    That goes for anyone scared of modding the Wii, and want 7 people to verify something for you. If your not willing to take the risk the first time (or in the case of the laser, at all), you shouldn't be willing to risk it ever.

    The Wii laser is the same kind of laser in your xbox, or ps2... not the same drive, the same LASER eye...

    It will wear out eventually, when is the question... 2 weeks, 2 years, 2 decades, 2 millennium? who knows!

    I have Kodak discs- are they classed as good discs?

    And anyway, if your lens does 'burn up', then remove the mod-chip (if you have a Wii-Clip...) and send it back to Nintendo saying that Brawl won't play. Simple.
