    I bet you need one that spins your disk. Maybe has a laser too..

    I honestly have no idea about replacing a drive, but maybe a Serial Number or something would be useful to someone that could help.

    But if I may make a suggestion.. take the money you're going to waste on a disk drive, and put it into a hard drive. Your Wii is still functional, and hard drives are a billion times better than the disk. You can use your computer to transfer any games you still have on disk right over to your hard drive and play directly from there.

    if your looking to replace your dvd drive, it doesnt matter which type because they are all universal.
