    I don't know for sure, but I think this is not possible. You see, the lens is no software/firmware (not a program), but it's hardware. I don't think you can clean the lens with a program, but if I'm wrong, please correct me [​IMG]

    the initial spin up of such a disc would be enough to clean the lens, however, if you really feel like you need a lens cleaning, I'd open the beast up to do so, or just send it in.

    Basically a lens cleaner requires the console to play the disc as if it were an audio CD. The only media homebrew that works with the optical drive as far as I know is MPlayer, but that's for video DVDs, not audio CDs.

    No. Definitely not.

    Get some Isopropyl and do the job properly.

    Or buy a DVD cleaner kit and use the fluid from that.

    Stop using Nero. IMGBurn is accepted as the best burning program for Wii games.

    Best of all, it's free.
