    My Wii occasionally makes loud clicking noises when I'm loading games, this leads to two things:

    1. I get a disc read error
    2. Everything in the game loads very slowly

    This Wii is pretty new, about 7 months old and I don't know why it's doing this. I've noticed that if I play the wii lying flat, the clicking noises are less frequent and usually I get flawless play - so what's causing the problems?

    My wii isn't chipped and I've only been playing legit games. Is there any way to fix the problem - or is this normal? There was a recent thread about this but it was a chipped wii and people said there was nothing wrong with it (no mention of disc read errors).
