    If it does stop working altogether, you'll have to send it to Nintendo for repair. Whether they repair the one you have or replace it with a refurbished or new unit, they will make sure to transfer all your Wii Shop data to the new console, you will not lose your purchased games.

    If you choose not to have it repaired and just buy a new unit yourself, then you are SOL.

    Does it do that with all discs, or just that one? It sort of sounds like the disc is a bit out of balance and is wobbling while spinning, which can make a sound sort of like that. But if all discs are doing it, then there could be a problem with the Wii itself. If it's just that one disc, make sure the disc is clean and there are no stickers or anything like that on it.
