    Hi:

    There is a weird hum coming from my wii when a game is in the drive. It doesn't always happen when the game is first put in, but usually starts up after a few minutes. And there is no weird hum when there is not a game inserted or when i am on a wii internet channel, and for this reason I don't think it is my speakers. My wii has never frozen, but I am a little worried that my wii will mess up or break later on down the road. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Yeah I know the wii makes a soft hum usually, but this is different. This is louder, and more of an erratic hum. Plus, my friend has a wii, and I checked his to see if it made the same sound and it doesn't.

    Call Nintendo and ask, and make sure the wii isn't wrecking your discs.

    It happened to mine when I first got it, make sure that your disc is going in to the unit correctly. Like Darthspazz, mine went away also.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I wrote nintendo an email, and will post their reply on here when I get it. Also, Joshieca what do you mean when you say "make sure the disc is going into the unit correctly."? I put the disc to the opening and then it sucks it in.

    Yeah, it sucks it in even if it's facing the wrong way; the way in where it cannot be read..but I don't think that's the problem here.

    I have my unit standing on the end (tall) so the first time I put the disc in I went in more toward the bottom and not in the middle...when I did it that way it made this strange loud noise coming from the drive when the Wii accessed the disc.
