    Grinding Wii Disk Drive

    Yesterday night, I was playing SatSR, and my Wii made grinding noises and rumbled, so I switched to SMG and it was fine, then I switched back and it grinded again.

    I called Nintendo and the lady said:

    Her: "The disk drive has moving parts in it. It's normal."

    Me: "It's quite loud."

    Her: "Do you need to turn up your volume to hear the game?"

    Me: "Well... not really."

    So I kept playing.

    Today, I popped in NFS: Carbon and it did it louder, so I played until I realised it got louder a second time.

    I called Nintendo again:

    Me: "Yesterday, I followed the advice someone gave me about my disk drive's grinding noise, and it is getting louder."

    Another lady: "Is it only on one game?"

    Me: "No, it's on two that I tried, the one not grinding being SMG."

    Her: "What's your serial number?"

    Me: "LU________."

    Her: "Okay, we can send you a replacement then."

    *I put in SatSR*

    Me: "It seems to have stopped...
    Um... if it gets worse, I'll call back to get a replacement."

    Her: Well, you have 'til March to send it back in."

    Well, what should I do?
    Should I wait 'til it may get worse, or play it safe and send it in now.

    The first lady didn't know what she was talking about.

    Send it in. The same thing happened to me, and I had my new Wii within 2 days of calling it in. It worked out great and didn't cost me a penny.
