Noisy Wii

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Anyone else have a very noisy Wii? I got mine launch day, so unless they've fixed something... I'm hoping everyones sounds like this. But when it's loading something from the disc. You DEFINATELY know it's loading something. Like. Louder than any computer CD / DVD drive I've ever had. Louder than any PS2 or 360 game I've heard load. It's just very loud. And I'm worried it's only mine. But it sounds like something inside is just going to stop soon, and I'm debating whether to take this up with Nintendo or not.

Mine is almost silent... You should probably look into a trade in or some type of return...

Mine is practically silent during reading/games

However when loading it is a tad bit noisy, but not so much that i am worried about it. I would get it checked out if i was you. But then again i don't have the launch version, but as far as i am aware Nintendo haven't made any revisions.

My sims and SSB are the only games that have loud disk activity for me. And pretty much because My Sims reads the disk like crazy and SSB reads the disk more than most other games but still way less than My Sims.

depends on the game. if its happening during Brawl it's normal just cuz its a huge dual layered disc. lotta wii's are making quite a bit of noise playing it. ive noticed some other games though such as metroid prime 3 and no more heroes tend to get a little noisy too, probably because of the sheer amount its loading at a time. but so far Brawl is the loudest. kinda scared me at first too lol, sounded like it was scratching up my game
