Switched the Wii on yesterday and the drive was very noisy. Starts off very noisy, then speeds up and sounds like a plane taking off. It then stops as though the motot just can't spin it any more. The games don't play. Found a link and it souds exactly like it.... My Wii was bought only a month ot two after they came out. Is the process to contact Nintendo on 0870 6060 247? What is the process then? Will I have to pay? How is it packaged up? Hopefully it is simply a drive problem so hope they would just replace that. I have backed up my save games but quite a few of them won't allow the save file to be backed up (Mario Kart, Strikers football etc.). I also have some Virtual games and lots of friends etc. so assume if I get a new system they would all be gone? Cheers for any help and advice..
