    sigh.....well i bought the game mysims and during playing that game my wii started making a funny noise (like the disc was scraching up on somthing while spinning inside), and when i take the game out it stops making the noise
    (does this with all my games), the games play fine and theres not much of a lag, but that noise pisses me off, and im scared somthings wrong

    Check to see if there is a scratch or defect in the disc. Also, does this happen with other games, or just MySims?

    Well if it happens with all the discs, then it's probably something inside the Wii making he noises. I suggest reading the troubleshooting section on Nintendo's site and if you can't find anything relevant, send it back to Nintendo.

    Well thats good, but sometimes that happens.
    Its not much to worry about.

    However if it happens again and doesn't go away for a bit, there may be a problem.

    i think the problem may be with the Disk drive acting up because it shouldnt be doing that. My suggestion is that you keep play normally and if it happpens again for an extended period of time like per say two weeks then call nintendo and have them ship you a new wii with your wii FC and your VC account.

    My sims does this with all wii's. dont worry there is nothing wrong with it. My cousins wii's and my wii all make that noise with mysims. But if it makes that noise with all ure games... u may have a problem.

    I'm having the same problem as you, Whenever I put in anygame and turn the wii on I hear a buzzing noise and it doesn't stop till I turn the wii off...games play fine though, but I would like to know how to fix it. Greatly appreciate it if someone finds out for us.

    Clean your disk check if it's scratched.

    Mine did the same until it started blasting "Cannot Read Disc" errors, then it was off to Nintendo in a box.

    Keep and eye on that.

    I believe something similar happened to mine. My parents was playing Tigerwoods Golf 08 stoped it to have there tea and when they went back to playing it Error came on the screen and it crashed only way for my dad to turn it off was to unplug it. When i got home from work we played it and it lagged, kept making funny noises etc. he tired sports in it today and it worked ok. So i am taking game back and guna keep close eye on it!
