    It sounds like your alittle paranoid i did what you did, i looked at my games under strong like and i found starches but when i removed the like i could no longer see them from what you said in your post its lead me to believe that the starches are very minor and as long as theyre very minor you have nothing to worry about

    It's really easy to get TINY scratches in any disk that are visible under bright light. There's nothing to worry about until they start being readily apparent in normal lighting.

    I checked my discs and don't see any scratches.

    But if this concerns you there is a product out called d_skins protective disc skins. It's a special sleeve that snaps on the disc and gives it a protective layer. If anything is going to scratch the disc it will scratch the skin instead. If this occurs at some point you can remove the d_skin and replace it with a new one. d_skins cost about 1.00 per skin, you can prolly get them cheaper in larger quanities I bought mine in a tin 5, for like $4.99.

    I haven't used any on my Wii games, but I have one on my Gears of War disc and it works great. I usually put it on a disc before I lend it out to my bro.

    My Wii Sports one has a lot of scratches, but I don't think I might worry about 'em...

    No scratches here either, even under extremely bright light..(Just for the record)

    Edit: Ive even moved my Wii with the disc in... on more than one occasion.

    I have had my Full Auto game professionally resurfaced (scratch removal) by a local game store (Game Quest). Cost me like $12, it was like brand new after that but $12 is kinda steep. I definitely wouldn't want to have to do that more then once if ever. And most of those scratch removal machines they sell in stores are garbage and they can actually leave their own scratches. The machine that Game Quest uses cost a couple grand.

    As for the scratches being minor, you'd have to ask yourself how many times have you put the disc in and out of your Wii, and in the future over the life of the game are those scratches gonna pile up and make the disc unreadable? If so I'd find out whats causing the scratches, even if it means Nintendo replaces your Wii.

    The scratches are probably caused by when he takes it out of the case and rubs the disk along the edges or it could have even come like that when the games are being made or in transport, there are alot of reasons i dont think you should just assume its the wiis fault as ive said before as long as the scratches stay minor and there arent alot of them there isnt much to worry about

    nintendo told me that those lateral and straight scratches are normal for slot in drivers the black thing is made in carbonium fiber but little pieces of powder can just be on the disk.. and that is the cause of scratches..

    however I belive that a lot of soft (very soft not visible in normal light)scratches do not cause harm.. A single deep scratch even very short however can cause the disk to not being readable.. so it's not a quantitative problem
