    Dear All,

    Can anyone confirm this. When you insert a game into the Wii drive and wait about 2 seconds, can you hear a single click noise?

    Furthermore when turning the wii off with the game still in the drive, does it also make a clicking noise?

    The reason I am asking is because for the past few days when playing games, the CD/DVD game inside the drive of the Wii can be heard making clicking sounds causing the game to error. It is only after a reboot of the system that the game loads normally. CD/DVD media is unmarked and the problem occurs randomly. I am concerned for the reliability of my Wii System and believe the problem to be the Laser on the CD drive. I am also concerned that the system may damage the game CD's.

    Regards.

    Hopefully, you aren't using CDs or DVDs in the Wii, and are only using WODs (Wii Optical Discs), because that may screw it up.

    I've had that happen to me too sometimes, and it annoys me immensely.

    Thanks but can you confirm if it makes a single click noise when you insert a game into the Wii drive and wait about 2 seconds. And when turning the wii off with the game still in the drive, does it also make a clicking noise?

    I think I am think too much about it now. I seem to always think that my wii is going to break down.

    Please could anyone check?

    Oooh... do you normally turn off the wii with the game still in? That's not good... that's why mine was doing that.

    its meant to happen guys its just the console reading or stopping the disc, and who ever posted above that it is not good to turn your wii off and leave a disc in it, that wont harm your console in anyway.

    Actually cannon, it says in the instruction manual to take the games out before turning off console as it may cause damage. Not that I do it! But the rest of the **** u said I agree with, mine clicks all the time when reading game discs.

    I'm having a similar problem. This week my Wii started making clicking sounds constantly while playing any game. They never crash, but it just makes a lot of incredibly annoying clicks all the time. Anyone find out why this would happen?

    Its normal. They all make a clicking noise it is just reading the disc. Leaving the disc in shouldn't cause any damage. The guy saying that stuff doesn't know what he is talking about. He said putting DVDs in it could harm it but Wii games are on DVDs and putting a Video DVD in wouldn't hurt it, it would just reject it.

    Why do people comment on this, 360 sounds like a broken lawnmower no one complains about that. Anyays I just checked no clicking sound.

    I commented because I've had mine since launch and it hasn't made a sound and just this week it started making wacky loud clicking noises the entire time I have played.

    Haha I know my 360's fans have started making grinding noises. It sounds like its about to blow up. It still works though and I got a three year warranty for when it does die. I just hope it lasts until the ones with the new processors that generate less heat come out.

    It probably says that in the booklet for all consoles. I have been doing it on my Ps2 since launch day and it is still kicking fine.

    no you can leave the game disc in the console even if it is turned off, Nintendo Power confirmed this.
