If that isn’t too personal of a question.
I ask because the optical drive on our Wii started making considerably more noise than it used to a couple of months back.
It is not a horrendous noise, but it is considerably louder than it used to be.
And, yes, I am sure it is the optical drive and not the fan, which I understand to be the only other mechanical thing in the Wii.
I wouldn’t normally bring this sort of thing up. Optical drives start making noise some times. It does not always mean the device is close to failure. I have a drive in our lab that has been making a huge amount of noise for the last three years.
But just the other day a co-worker of mine mentioned that the drive on his Wii had started making a lot of noise, which made me wonder if this is an issue for others.
Of course, my Wii is coming up on its second year with us, so I am sure it is out of warranty, but I still wonder if this is a known issue with the unit. I poked around a bit on a couple of forums, but did not see much on the subject.
So how is the optical drive on your Wii doing?
