    my (Softmodded) Wii stopped reading discs today. I got these questions:

    Whats the best way to fix the Disc Read errors? by replacing the DVD drive or replacing the lens?
    Will either affect the Wii's softmod in any way?
    what are some DVD Drives that read dvd-r?

    Thx.

    I tried to load both backups on Neogamma and retail discs on the Disc Channel

    Just replace the Whole Drive.
    Make sure it's not a D3 drive if you want to be able to play Burned discs.
