    Hi,

    My Wii (3.2U) DVD player is making a strange noise after installing the latest gamma loader. It looks like the drive is trying to read the dvd in high speed or something (the same sound when a dvd videoplayer is trying to read a damaged disc).
    Is this because of the CIOS? other users here with the same problem?
    thanx!

    mario kart retail seems to make a funny noise like it needs a fan in there or something is this a danger for the drive?

    that also happens on the game baja race 1000 , you can hear the the dvd lens moving inside the wii but it cant read the game. I stoped that shit after about 10 seconds , it can't be good for the wii

    Considering that I have some retail games with similar behaviour, e.g. Metroid Prime Corruption and Super Mario Galaxy, it can't be THAT bad.

    I noticed metriod prime makes those noises like crazy especially when you get near a large area that needs to be loading (just before you go through the door). With my retail brawl disc I don't get those noises. When I get a chance i'l burn a DVD9 version of th game and run it on the loader to see what happens.

    ive noticed the noises with non backup games as well. Seems the wii likes some discs and dislikes others... I think its hit or miss.

    Yeah especially when I didn't hear these noises before. I heard the reading noises before but not these *I'am in pain and struggling to read this at the speed am forced to read it, on a disc am not really suppose to read anyway* noises!

    its all paranoia until the drive breaks! Then its "opps" well we did warn you that were not responsible for anything that happens to your machine with the use of this software.
