    Whenever I start it up, it goes "vrrr" as if its reading something. Is that supposed to happen? Oh, and where do I find friend codes?

    Thanks!

    It sometimes makes that noise, but if it's loud, you should look into it.

    And for friendcodes...Here

    If it goes "vrr" and a couple of clicks that's normal. If your wii sounds like it is actually struggling in there, that's a problem. But a new wii should not come out of the box broken, that's rare:lol:

    Thanks! No it doesn't seem to loud, and when I take the disc out after playing it looks perfectly fine, so I'm sure its not scratching anything.

    Err, sorry for double posting, but it goes "vrrr", pauses for a tiny bit, and "vrrr" again. Just have to make sure its totally normal :lol:

    um. . . my wii makes noises sometimes but that sounds weird.

    If it's pretty quite though I wouldn't worry about it, but if it gets worse call nintendo.

    It's pretty quite, and only when it starts up. Well, if it gets louder I think I'll just return it to BestBuy and get a second one :p

    Hmm, I see. Well I don't believe my Wii has any problems because I played Wii sports for a full hour and no issues whatsoever. Can't wait to get my hands on Zelda! Thanks for the help guys!

    I think that's totally normal. Like Frummage said, i kinda like it, it sounds like shits going down inside my wii and im starting up something awesome, which of course i am. And nice onemonapea (hell if i can spell it) "Vrr" describes it perfectly i think hahaha

    Its normal for the wii to make that noise on startup. If you mute your tv you will also notice that the wii makes some pretty funky noises when its loading certain parts of a disc. Its alot more noticable in hard loading games like Scarface and red steal. This is all normal

    I don't know but sometimes that loud "CLICK" I hear when I click to go to the Wii menu makes me feel a little uneasy....

    That's all normal. That;s how a Wii is. Any system is going to make sounds when it's running. It's normal. The only time it isn't normal is if the console can't play games, channels aren't working, etc.

    Yer when I exit a game it comes up like the 9 'wii channels' which crossfade to the bottom right to make a blank screen. And during this scenario i hear the whhrrrr..click!... then it fades to all black and goes back to wii menu. I think it also does this after system updates. Normal?

    That's totally normal. It's spinning up the disc to see what it is. The click is most likely the laser head being moved into position. In game where there is a lot of disc access, you will hear that a lot (Metroid Prime 3 comes to mind). It's basically the DVD equivalent of the little clicks hard drives make when the head is moving to different parts of the disc.
