    Sounds like the drive case cracked or something. Assuming your warranty is voided, I would open it up and see what's wrong.

    If you good with mechanic, I say open up and see if you can fix it.

    Otherwise buy a broken Wii online to swap the drive (obviously the drive must not be broken).
