    Ever since i started playing backup games on my wii the disc drive has started to click and hum. I've stopped now hoping that it will sort itslef out if I only play proper Wii discs but now I occasionally get Disc read errrors!!
    What could be causing this?

    If your discs arnt scratched it might be a dirty lens.
    If you've got a triwing screwdriver you can open your Wii and clean it with a cotton bud or q-tip.

    Hope this helps

    thanks for the suggestion, but i'm not happy opening my wii up.
    I dont even know where to start, i could try one of those lens cleaning disks, i think i have one somewhere.

    I had this ame problem, and I fixed it by taking one of those pressurized keyboard-cleaning things, stuck it's nozzle a little bit into the disk drive, and blew it for about four seconds.
