    It started when i was playing guitar hero and ejected the disc at the end of a song. I put a another guitar hero disc in, and the game froze. I held the power button for 4 seconds and turned it back on. I tried to eject the disc but it wouldn't come out so i unplugged the wii and plugged it back in. The disc ejected but now it wont read any wii games, both backups and originals (GC work fine). Im really concerned now. Any help is appreciated.

    Wiikey , latest firmware
    3.1U

    It seems it has something to do with the drivechip. The only thing to do it's to desolder/cut the wires and see if your Wii reads Wii originals. Then, resolder/rewire the chip.
