Nintendo Wii Optical Drive Noise

I bought my Nintendo Wii at Toys R Us on March 30th. So I've only had my system for about a month now. I've noticed that I can hear the optical lens move a lot while I play. At times it is annoying and it's so loud on some games that I believe damage is being done to my system.

Does anyone else notice loud sound coming from your Wii's optical drive lens while you play games?

Maybe it's just me... I mean computer disc drives are quite loud so I'm probably paranoid. But it really sounds as if it's hitting something or skipping at times.

Has anyone tried doing so yet? I haven't put a save on my card and looked at it on the comp, but I'm wondering if anyones done it. Maybe theres even a website out there thats hosting a bunch of saves. I don't have need for it right now, but I'd imagine eventually I'd want to download and try out a "Perfect" save file for certain games I know I'll never hit 100%. For example, when I get sick of Dragonball and I have yet to unlock all the characters, it would be cool to download a save file with all the characters for multiplayer.
