    Hi,

    yes
    If your opening is upwards however, you'll wear out the eject mechanism faster. I've done it.

        The Wii uses a vertical slot load.

          its more horizontal if u loook @ it the way we are.
          the wii is almost like laying the drive its side. but the ejection mechanism is still pushing out horizontally.

          the OP is probably referring to the disc being ejected UPward.

              What about the drives that do not slot load, the "laptop" style trays that POP then you have to actually pull the tray out... Would that wear out faster too>?

                They might, it's lightweight mechanics working against gravity. At least with the tray load drives, you could push a paperclip in and manually eject the tray.

                  Load a disc on one of those as you hit a bump and you're buying a new optical drive because the tray is snapped, making it useless.
                  Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                  How about the Wiki?
