    Yesterday For Some Reason The Disc Error Appeared, I Thought It Was The Disc But No, I Tried Several Other Ones And Still No Luck, I Open The Whole Wii To See What Was Wrong, I Notice The Disc Dont Even Spin, Is It The Motor Or The Laser That Needs To Be Replace?? Can Anyone Help?? How Can I Make Sure What Needs To Be Replace??

    THNX For the reply, my bad dude should of add more details, well actually i do play them both, but not like everyday, well could it be because my wii is one of the older models?? Meaning that my wii was manufactured in 06, well when i open the whole wii the disc will only spin when it feels like it.. if u want more details let me know.

    i notice that the laser doesnt have that little red light ON when i insert a wii game, So if the laser is dead the disc wont spin?? can i get a confirmation on that plz? so i could buy a laser replacement asap.. ....UPDATE: Also If i poke the laser with the screw driver all of a sudden the disc SPINS!!! lol, but when i play the game the laser starts makin this awkward noise then i get a black screen saying a error has occurred, that please eject the disc and ect..

    might as well try the least expensive thing
    buy a wii lens cleaner and see if it improve things
    also even if your laser or motor is dead there is still the usb loading option and its much more faster and convinient than using discs

    problem solved! Im so relief! it was the laser, i tooo it to my friend's repair shop n took out one of his wii's laser n tested out on my drive n the game shows on the disc channel :) too bad he didn't have any lasers available, good thing i saw some at ebay for less than 10 bucks, my question is am i suppose to get a specific laser replacement so it could read backups??

    Laser doesnt matter. Its the drivechip that decides if you can read backups or not. And since your Wii was made in -06, Id say its quite certain your drive can read backups :)
