    My Wii seems to make noise when reading GameCube disks. It is not the sound of the disk spinning, but the laser eye moving. Is this normal?

    It does it a little on Wii games, but it is much more subtle. How much Wii drive noise is normal? None of it sounds extreme, but I am concerned none the less.


    Once again, it is just the sound of the laser eye moving, not any spinning noise.

    I tend to notice it during dialog. For example, in Battalion Wars when they are talking about the objectives. I don't notice it when I am playing.

    I found an article online that says the Wii drive is the loudest of the three consoles. So my guess is these sounds are normal.

    I remember my GameCube being loud when reading risks, guess this is similar...
