My Wii U disc drive is pretty loud

Post by Cubelover » Sun Dec 01, 2013 6:35 pm

So I got a new black Wii U and was wondering why the disc drive is louder than my PS3. It's silent with no disc in the drive but once you put a disc in the drive it spins like crazy. It seems as though data is read all the time unlike the PS3's disc drive that loads data into memory, stops reading (spins slower) and starts reading (spins faster) whenever you get to a new location or new enemies are showing up. It won't stop spinning crazy even when you exit the game. It's very distracting. Anyone have the same issue?

What's the youtube link to this video? All I can find are videos for the original Wii, which doesn't have the problem the Wii U has.
