    Smoking causes Wii disc read problems?

    I just read on a closed thread that smoking can cause problems with the delicate optical sensor of a Wii . Is this true? If so does it effect new Wii's that can deal with SSBB? My girlfriend and I have two wii's and smoke heavily. If we have any issues I'll be sure to post them

    Well, seems pretty obvious to me:

    Smoking creates lots of particulates in the air which settle on all things and coat them with a sticky sludge. The Wii (like other optical media readers) uses a ridiculously-sensitive laser and laser-pickup to read the disc. When this gets dirty, you get problems.

    Cigarette smoke is harder to clean off than other forms of dust. A little brushing often isn't enough, and you often have to use a light solvent like alcohol. I speak from 15+ years in the IT industry, much of that fixing computers.

    Just another way smoking is bad (aside from the obvious health issues).

    Why not just cover it up a bit when not using it? At least you can minimize the damage

    Skitz0 is genius. Its called the wii system stacker and it covers all but the ports. I use that and i move my discs from wii to case. I also smoke but on weekends only. Was the damaged one at a bar?

    Genius? Are you crazy?

    You do realize that the Wii has a fan, right?
    You do realize what the fan is for, right?
    You do realize what happens when you block the airflow?
    You do realize how many other threads there are about Wii hardware damage from overheating?

    You can't both protect the Wii from smoke and let it breathe and keep cool, without a huge, dense filter (huge so it doesn't restrict airflow for the Wii's puny fan).

    Yeah mick Genius, cause ive had mine in the stacker here since day one. It just encases the wii so the fan can run and u can insert games. Mainly its for dust collecting on the top of it aka micro smoke pellets.
    Also smoke it up people, i mean it makes my job easier.
