Yeah... you know you'd be miffed if it really happened...

umm. Duh? ANY dust on an optical lense screws it up. When the laser cant get to the disc, then it doesnt read properly. This is a problem with ALL optical drives. I dont see how this relates to the horsepower or the quality of the Wii at all.

See? I can nit-pick too.

Licht is absolutely 100% correct about the disks. And yes, quality of parts used is a significant factor in the reading of disks. My first Ps2 read all my games just fine until i got GTA:SA. After that, since the disc was so full, it had trouble reading the game and would often stop reading it altogether. It was only a week or two before the next game stopped playing, and about a month later they had all stopped playing. I sent it back, they replaced the lazer, or maybe even the whole system (they didn't tell me directly). Never had a problem since.

The wii could, and in my educated guess, is faulting because bigger games requiring "more horsepower" (my official edit would be "quality parts") are finally getting to it. I wouldn't expect this problem to happen with any other console, at least not for the same reasons.
The Wii has a very low failure rate. I would say that you cant say the ps3 fails less or the wii fails less.

Yes, that was a problem with initial ps2 units. Think about it this way, DVD was brand new then. DVD is not brand new now.

Educated guess? They dont need more horsepower, again, HORSEPOWER has nothing to do with the ability to read the media on a disk. The disc read error happens when the laser is dirty. Like I said, ANY console is susceptible to it. A spec of dirt can cause disc read errors because the laser is being blocked in that spot and is unable to read certain data. Thats all it comes down to.

The game cube had a problem with the power sent to the laser. Mine would have read errors and I turned up the laser and it was good to go! Anybody who wants to know how send me a pm.
