Error: reinsert memory unit


I notice no one properly read the question.
The user asking the question specifies that it still plays games.
It's not playing DVD therefore it's not a laser issue. I post this because I have the same problem - the same error (which states please reinsert memory device) comes up when attempting to PLAY DVD. however the Xbox will STILL PLAY GAMES.
the Xbox has never been connected to the Internet and still currently has no connection. Anyone have an actual solution?

My WII will not read any disk and we do not have a menu. All it will say is unable to read disk.


Unable to Read the Disc / Disc Could Not Be Read Situation:
  • System displays either error message "Unable to read disc" or "Disc could not be read"

What to do:
  • This message may display if the disc is ejected during play. Return to the HOME Menu before changing discs.

  • If the Wii console is laying flat, verify that the system is not placed upside-down. The game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.

  • Verify that the disc is being inserted properly.
    • If the console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right. Note: Only Wii consoles with model number RVL-001 are intended to be placed vertically (learn more)


    • If the console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards.

  • If the problem occurs with only one game disc, there may be a problem specific to that game. Click here to check our list of specific game issues.

Situation Not Resolved:
  • If only one Game Disc displays this error message, it will need to be replaced. Click here for Game Disc replacement options

  • If the error is occurring with most or all Game Discs or all of one type of game, then this indicates a problem with the system. The console and one or two example discs will need to be sent in for repair. Click here to begin the repair process.

Can play games but not blu ray movies error code 80029940 comes up "the video cannot be played"have searched for this number cannot find please help !


spatnz

The error code 80029940 refers to a disk read error.

Does this happen with all blu-ray disks or just some. Also try to play a DVD do you get the same error or do they play fine.

Also let me know me know the model of PS3 you have and what games you have play fine. This will help me see where the problem is at.

Will not read any game disk. keeps appearing error 80010514


Basically, what is occuring is the corruption of game disc recognition and execution. If you will notice, in 90% of all cases, the drive will still play DVD and even Blu Ray movies with no problems. When trying to start a game however, the title, sooner or later, will receive the error.

The error is not hardware related and is caused due to corruption of firmware. Restoring you PS3 will not roll back the firmware, and unfortunately will not fix the issue 9 times out of 10. If you are receiving this error, contact Sony for a replacement unit.

Wii disk error


If the console try to read the disk, but you only get whirring and clicking noise, ending up with a no disk, and if this happens with all disks then it is a lens problem.

Try first cleaning the Wii lens with a cleaner disk, that is the easiest thing to do.

If that does not work, the Wii must be opened to access the lens pickup directly, and clean the lens with Q-tips and isopropyl alcohol, or replace the lens pickup.

If the cleaner disk does not fix it, better to contact Nintendo calling the number listed on the user manual to see if they can cover the repair, or replace the Wii, before disassembling the console.

CoD4 disc won't read.


how many times have you tried to play the disc?
the 360 is prone to many disc read errors, and most of the time if you just keep trying to play the disc it will work. xbox recognized the problem, and with the new dashboard update you can install games to your hard drive which minimizes the time the disk is spinning, which in turn minimizes disk read errors.

if it doesn't play, I would deffinetly try getting a new copy before sending in the console. getting a new copy is just a trip to the store, sending in the console will take a month.

Console problem


I'm having the same issue. Doesn't matter what game disk is in, after a little while of playing, the screen goes black with the message that disk can not be read. Eject disk and power off, then power back on and re insert disk. No error code is given. I just bought this console yesterday and this error has happened probably 10 times already. Wanted to get online and see if this was a common wii problem or I just possible got a bad one.

PS2 Console disk read error


You are going to have to get the lens adjusted or get a new one. I would hope just to get it adjusted, because it will be cheaper. Send it to a repair shop and start having fun again. connie
