If Wii gives Unable to read Disc 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

Need instruction on how to get an iconcepts wil/gamecube controller to work on my wii.


  • 1 Gather up any GameCube controllers that you want to use with your Wii.
  • 2 Open up the top of your Wii. If you unhook the latch on the very top of the system there should be a sort of secret compartment that holds four controller ports and two memory card slots.
  • 3 Plug your GameCube controller into the ports located in the top of the Wii. If you're plugging in more than one, don't worry about attaching them in any particular order.
  • 4 Load any GameCube memory cards that you would like to use into the memory card slots located next to the controller ports on top of the Wii.
  • 5 Feed the GameCube game you would like to play into the disc slot on the Wii

    My gamecube does not spin the discs that i put into it and does not read them. Is there something i can do to fix this without having to buy a new one?


    One time I ccidently touched the lens in my 10 year old gamecube so now the lens and the laser dont read the discs anymore because it is knocked out of anglement so you could buy a new gamecube now or buy a wii because wii's can still play gamecube disc's too.

    My disc wont play on my gamecube, its not my gamecube because it plays other games but the disc plays on my wii.


    I have the same problem. The Wii has a better lazer eye on it that can read through more scratches and gunk and smudges and stuff than a gamecube. The gamecubes lazer is alot weaker and more touchy and more likely not to play a scratched disc than a Wii would..

    My Wii suddenly stopped playing all EA Sports discs.


    I can only presume that the discs are faulty, just that your relative has a better/newer/cleaner laser to read them. I can't see any other real reason why it would be limited to one brand. The only sure way would be to buy a brand new EA game and test that i suppose. None of the software in the Wii works to limit a brand. Has your Wii been modified?
