    Was this SSBB a retail disc or a burnt disc?
    Also, what was the other game you tried loading?

    It is an original disc
    The burnt game I tried was Naruto GNT Special
    The Gamecube game I tried was Luigi's Mansion
    They all worked fine before
    I also tried other wii games(not burnt) and they wont read either
    Is it the laser for the wii because this week I have been playing bralw on GeckoOS it most of the times it said no dvd found
    so I had to try it over and over until it worked
    Is it the laser??
    Thanks [​IMG]

    Something wierd really happened
    I unplgged it and waited for like 2-3 hours (I think)
    So I Pugged it back in, so I tried out Luigi's Mansion and it worked
    I tried a burnt Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and IT WORKED
    I tried the retail Elebits and IT WORKED
    So I tried SSBB and it showed up on the disc channel
    BUT when I pressed pressed start it took me back to the system menu
    So I tried again with SSBB and it said error had occured on SSBB
    So I turned off the wii and turned it back on and all the games stopped working
    So I think its the laser
    Also I had the first batch of wiis so thats probably it

    Happened to me... Your only choice is to buy a new drive - or the dreadful... send it to Nintendo. (I had to send it in)

    No, just buy a new laser. They're like £10 and pretty damn easy to fit.
    A launch date wii is not gonna be under warranty so they'd charge to fix anyway and I'd put money on it being more than the cost of a laser

    Nintendo will still fix it for free even being a launch wii. Just tell them ssbb wont work and the rest of your games play fine. Although if they fix it they will give you the new drive that can't read backups.

    Neogamma may not even be on his wii. You can load it from the homebrew channel or a foward channel.

    Yes it's possible nintendo won't fix it if they detect unauthorised software on it "Check Disk for Pre-Repair Process
    "
    but then again they might. Obviously you would want to remove any homebrew you have on it before sending it in.

    Oh and even if they refuse to fix it it still won't cost you anything as they pay for the shipping. If the OP is happy buying a laser and fixing it himself he's probably way better of anyways as he will keep his drive that can play backups and bootmii@boot2.
