    My half year old Wii stopped reading any discs(Wii or Gamecube)!
    I just bought a new game, came home to play it, and my Wii wouldn't read it...
    I'm waiting for Best Buy to get another in stock so they can replace it, but if I can fix it myself with out voiding the warrenty, keeping my Miis and uncopyable files it would help... Thanks.

    did you try playing it on its side? if you get a dvd disk cleaner that might fix it you lens just might be dirty.

    Yes, I tried playing it on its side.
    I think it may be from my trip to Idaho(Udaho for you imature geeks), as I live in southern California. I brought it with and travelled between two houses the whole time, taking it where-ever I went.
    Some music CD's I brought were shrunk by freezing and melting by the end of my trip and I fear that that's the problem with my Wii.
    Is it really worth it to buy a disc drive cleaner I'll hardly ever use?
    Thanks.

    i agree with yimmmy, just contact nintendo or wait for the new wii's to come in. its not worth voiding the warranty to try and fix especially when they are so hard to find.

    I mailed the console yesterday, and from what I understand, they should just be able to replace the disc drive. XD
