Okay, so my old wii, which had plenty of homebrew, cIOSes, everything imaginable, stopped reading discs recently. Earlier, brawl would work up until stage select, but when I chose a stage, the disc could no longer be read. I figured my wii's laser was burnt out so I headed over to gamestop and bought a used wii ($130). I get home, play brawl for about 30 minutes, and.... the game disc could not be read. I have 2 copies of brawl, so I try the other one. ~20 minutes, could not be read. I've done some experimentation and it seems that, the games always freeze when it tries to load an AI yoshi (like in event match 10, and in classic). But sometimes it'll just freeze after 10 matches just between mario and bowser. So I did some more research and it appears that for older wiis, a laser incapable of reading brawl is a common problem. So my question is: What do? First off, my two copies of brawl are really quite scratched up, so I suppose that could be the cause. Is there a way to check if my newly bought wii has a serial number old enough that the laser might be weakening? Should I return it (I have 30 days), and just pay the extra 70 bucks for a brand new black wii? Also a smaller question: Without homebrew, there's no way to copy a brawl save from one wii to another, huh?
