    So after burning many copys of SSBB and having none of them work I have came upon the conclusion that it is my wii that is causing the problems. After reading around in the message boards I have found that it is infact the lens that created this problem.

    Problem with it though is my Wii is modded so it is highly unlikely that i can send it in to nintendo to get it fixes; that leave with me to do it myself

    Does anyone have any ideas or methods to clean or fix the wii to be able to read dual layer disks.

    Well if the lens is dirty get some rubbing alcohol on a qtip and very gently clean the lens off and let it air dry. I used it all the time on my gamecube and it seems to get rid of the problem.

    I was able to do it without a multimeter. Just turn 1/16th and test. Mine worked with 1/8ish.

    It's not just a cotton swab. According to the picture, Q-tips have "more soft cotton at the tip than any other swab".


    You think cleaning the lens will help stop DRE. Sometimes I get them when playing backups as well as originals.
