Cant read any disk for long or at all, i've tried unplugging it, reseting, and everything inbetween. i'm a IT for Dell, so i thought i could figure it out. Is there any trick or setting to fix this problem.
thanks for your time
Re: can't read any disk for long ( all new wii games)
Unfortunately there is no solution as it is probably a bad disk drive. If it was your computer I'm sure you could replace it in under 5 minets, alas its a Wii and there is nothing to be done. I had the same problem with my first Wii and ended up just calling Nintendo. They replaced it under warranty. Try giving them a call, Nintendo Consumer Service: 1-800-255-3700 They are often helpful.

I couldn't find anything indicating problems in this area. No youtube videos or anything. Have you tried the other side? Is it stuck or you can't figure out how to unplug it? everything I read said plain sealed beam and 1157 bulbs...
absolutely no noticeable noise (reading) during startup, no detection of a separate disk drive (my computer), then you've possibly left something unplugged or the CD drive has an electrical prob. with it. All disk drives always have a large flat datacable for readingwriting, data-transfer and a small separat cable for power which both need to be plugged in the proper direction safely with all the valuable pins which can't be damaged, even once... Unless you have good experience with CP hardware repair, I'd respectfully recommend carefully examining your changes you've made since the first removal and try to verify all the changes have been made correctly.
2. unable to "disable" the "floppy" drive in BIOS SETUP
3. not recognizing anything connected to SATA1 port
It's time to take your computer to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting.
Is your DELL computer still under warranty? If so, exercise the warranty.
Or, maybe you should just remove the "new" disk-drive, the RAM, the DVD-drive, and then responsibly "recycle" the old computer, and purchase a brand-new system, repurposing the disk/RAM/DVD components.
