So i haven't really ever made a topic,but i really need some help on this:
Basically i have been noticing since late last year that my Wii loves scratching disks,i noticed it when i bought Skyward Sword,it scratched it pretty badly,i decided to ignore it,then my Sonic Colors and Metroid Other M copies got scratched too and recently i bought Just Dance 3 and it also got scratched the first day.

I've had my Wii since summer 2007,so maybe it's happening because of age? i had it repaired on 2010(if i recall correctly)because it stopped reading disks,so it got fixed,but now i have the disk scratching problem,so can a mechanic repair the scratching problem too? or does a store sell anything that can help me avoid this problem?

I'd really appreciate any advice you could give me and sorry if it sounds confusing i am bad at explaining things ^.^'

your wii itself is scratching discs? it may have something up inside the drive itself (idk if you have little cousins, brothers and sisters, or kids of your own who like to jam things inside electronics, haha) or something inside the drive may be broken and touching the surface of the disc as it spins in the drive. if you're comfortable with it, you could open the Wii yourself and see if there's anything in the drive (there are videos on YouTube that can walk you through the process of opening up your Wii), but if you're not comfortable you could go ahead and have it repaired again.

I've had a little cousin throw my Wii to the floor a couple of times playing racing games with the Gamecube controller(he likes to move a lot while playing,apparently he thinks the gamecube controller is a steering wheel or something :/)
I think it might be what you said about having something inside the drive then(since it has hit the floor a couple of times when my cousin plays and something maybe loose/broken).

I think i may damage the Wii if i try opening it myself,so i guess i'll have it repaired again then,thanks for the advice :D

Wow that's a serious bummer!

I hope all of the discs still run?

Miyamoto on his desire to focus more on the (hard)core Nintendo fan.

[The casual] attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ [...] and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing.

They still work,i just don't like the fact that my Wii is scratching them so much(since they'll eventually stop working altogether if this keeps up):/
Oh and are they called "discs"? i always called them disks :P

"Disc" = optical media (CDs, DVDs, etc)
"Disk" = magnetic media (floppy disks, hard drives, etc)
