    Wii Drive Sounds (Video - Not Normal?)

    I bought my Wii the day it launched. I have been noticing the drive making clicking sounds at start-up with a disc in the drive. During MoH: Heros 2 I can hear the laser eye moving. Called Nintendo and they told me it was not normal. So I have made a video to see what everyone else thinks. Bad news is that I am currently 1 day out of warranty. Nintendo was willing to cover it for free after saying how bad that was.

    Sounds louder than it does in person when being filmed, but these are the sounds none the less. This is at power-up with a disc in the drive.

    Yeah it shouldn't be making a clicking sound like that at all.
    Send er' in to get fixed or replaced as soon as you can.

    Mine makes a sound when it starts up, not like that, just as if it's reading a disc. Is that alright?

    Edit: It only makes that sound when I put a disc in.

    My friend has a Wii and he claims it doesn't make the noise. Nintendo said it should make no noises like that.


    I am sending it back. I will keep this thread updated with the repair status.


    I would suggest calling Nintendo.

    Received my Wii back from repair. Nintendo determined the disc drive needed to be replaced.

    The new drive is much quieter. There are still clicking sounds at boot-up, but they are healthy sounding and soft. Before the repair the clicks sounded more like grinding and were loud.

    Sent my Wii in on 2/25 and recieved it back today (3/3).

    EDIT: O ya they extended my warranty 1 year. Considering that I was 1 day out of warranty when I opened the repair, NOA is top-notch in my book.

    My wii is making a sound like that, maybe not as loud. It makes the sound when i put a game in and when ever its loading something. Its not really clicking sounds but more of the laser eye moving, but there shouldn't be any sounds coming from it that you hear from across the room should there?
