Question about Nintendo Wii Console
The desk drive in a Wii is known to go out. It might be time for a new drive mechanism. These can be purchased online and installed by the end user if you are good at this sort of thing. If not and you are in warrenty send it back to Nintendo for replacement. The other option is to sell it on ebay as broken. They fetch a really great price. Sometimes very close to retail.

The Game your playing is probably a Blue colored media. That is ones that spin so fast. You console has become dusty and loaded with lint probably. You can open the case and clean up the insides. Also while your in there, remove the ocver and polish up the lasers lens. This will probably get you back in business. If you do nto have success, contact me at Repairtech@ playstationclinic.com I run The Playstation Clinic at www.playstationclinic.com If you have a Slim Model it will cost more than the big model to repair. The slim model is $41 full refurbish including return shipping inside the USA. The big Fat PS2 Versions are $36 including return shipping.

You cant replace the drive they are locked to the motherboard!( wont work on other motherboards) Well you could spoof it to think that the new drive is the original. This is not easy stuff to do 1 mess up and you have yourself a 400.00 paper weight or a bricked drive.
You could open it up and try the rubber band trick, that's for modded boxes that are having trouble reading certain media types"discs".
Remember if you open your 360 you void the warranty.
