If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide

Disk read error, turn console on goes to system configuration press x goes to mem card and says reading disk then says disk read error


This is a result of one of two things-

1) Your disc is dirty, damaged, or scratched. To fix this just clean it gently with a wet cloth, if it still doesnt work you can take it to a game store to have it cleaned there. It is possible that it is scratched to much and is unable to read at all.

2) Your Playstation 2's reading laser has become damaged or dirty. I suggest blowing air through the system with your mouth or preferably a can of compressed air which can be purchase at most retail stores.

This error seems most likely to be a disc issue.

I am unable to play dvds. The system starts with


Try other discs to see if the system is reading anything.

If it isn't then take a can of air and blow some into the drive to make sure there is no dust or dirt on the laser.

After that, try again and if the system isn't reading discs still then that means that the laser is bad. You can either replace the laser or the dvd drive itself.

My xbox 360 won't read dvd's. When I put the disk in the home screen doesnt show that it is reading a disk. The system still works for games


Sounds like you need to have someone do a Pot calibration on the lens and strengthen the lens to be able to read better.

When i put in a brand new game disk,it starts to read,but it but it doesn't read the new disk.it just says"open tray"


put in a game and as soon as it starts to say "reading" give the old box a few taps on top where the dvd drive is at. Keep tapping until it reads your game. May not work the first time so keep trying. This usually happens due to poor or loose laser mounts. If this doesnt work your gonna need to open it up. You can look at You Tube for that. Good Luck.

Xbox 360 doesnt read games


Does this problem only happen with this disk? If it only happens to that one, then the disk may be dirty or broken.  If it happens to all of your disks, your console's "eye" (disk reading device) may need repair. If this is the case, you should contact 1-800-4MY-XBOX.

You may have to replace the laser in the wii so that it can read the disc, if this isn't thecase, then I don't have any other solutions for you.

Unable to start games


We have this exact same problem right out of the box yesterday. Just talked to Nintendo today and they are now sending another Wii which we should get in 3-4 buisness days. As long as you are putting the disk in the correct way and disk is clean and you tried on multiple disks, really nothing else can be done it seems. Had bought at target so wanted to exchange but they are out of them and do not know when they will get them, so this is fastest way.
