    A lot of fuss over the dreaded 3.4 update, and a million posters after this dude with a valid question.

    I thought I'd quote his query and allow peeps to discuss this in a seperate topic.

    The quote......


    Now, I have read A LOT about the DVD drive of Wii's making noises, so wonder if this has sometihng to do with it.
    Many reasons surface when people run into read errors and noise from the Wii. These include lots of things, chip, loose wire, postition of the wii, media, speed of burn, dvd- or dvd+, backup loader, faulty drive etc etc etc. Some with a brand new wii.

    Is the fault a nintendo thing, and are they trying to fix it without a product recall? On the QT?
    Anyway, feel free to post your opinions/findings.

    I haven't updated and I'm on 3.2E with my wii away getting it's drive replaced (lol)

    cant imagine a firmware update can help better dvd reading do you..? sd reading yeah, but surely a firmware update couldn't help better dvd reading. hmm

    Of course they can make better firmware for the drives. What interests me is the fact that they did this before to let people play a dual layer game SSBB.

    Now why did they do that? Short answer they NEEDED to.

    A company won't spend any money it doesn't NEED to.

    So this is needed, but how?

    I think it is something to do with the speed of the reading from DVD, but thats just one random guess [​IMG]

    One thing I know for sure is a company like Nintendo doesn't add sometihng for no reason at all.

    Perhaps this could be a really, really great thing that leads to less read errors for people, longer lasting drives (for me) and once decompiled something better for the backup loader crowd.


    oh, btw my own wii drive died imo because of the switching between 3x and 6x on my wii key. (and 24/7/365 use)

    It's a trap, perhaps. LOL!

    Firmware is an enemy.. They always does that to prevent homebrew program and many other things. No wonder Firmware can be so evil.

    It barely effects them, though. At least for now.
