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

Unfortunately, no, you cannot format the Wii to accept different region codes. But, you say the UAE is where you bought the Wii, which I assume is the United Arab Emirates? Which would be Region Code 2, which includes Europe, the Middle East, South Africa and Greenland. Region code 1 includes only the United States of America and Canada. However, if the Winter Sport 2012 is a dual-layer dvd disc, the Wii can have issues reading it. This is a common problem with the game Super Smash Bros. Melee. The Wii's laser reader was not initially designed to read such formats and may need cleaning in order to read the disc. The Wii has a laser disc cleaner system that you can buy from most game stores that can clean the laser so that it emits a strong enough light to read a dual-layer disc. This has worked for me every time in the past.
All you can do in this situation is try a lens cleaner. Unfortunately if the Wii is reading a disc part of the way and then failing later on, chances are the problem isn't a dirty lens and you Wii is going to need to be repaired. You are going to need to contact Nintendo to get it repaired. Their customer service number is 1-800-255-3700

There could be several things wrong. Let's start with the most basic - is the disc inserted correctly? The holographic side needs to be on the left when inserting it. Then, make sure there are no scratches or smudges on the bottom of the disc. A common solution is to wipe it with a cloth or even your shirt if you don't have one handy. Look on the holographic side of the disc to make sure there isn't anything left on it. After cleaning thoroughly, try playing the disc again.
If you're still having a problem, try restarting the Wii console. However, there's always a possibility that you have a bad disc or, if you're unable to play any games, a bad console.
If the disk is dirty, you may try to clean it. Rub a small amount of toothpaste gel onto the disk with your fingers, rinse with luke warm water, and dry thoroughly before putting back into your Wii.
Verify the problem isn't with the Wii itself. Make sure that the Wii you purchased will play a different game. (Wii Sports would work fine.)
If the game disk is a pirated or burned copy your Wii has to be modified to read those disks.
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?
The lens in your wii disk drive might be dirty or scratched. Try putting in a regular head cleaning cd. The problem is that the wii will not read it but it might spin it round enough while trying to read it to clean the lens. You could also do it manually by taking your wii apart but i wouldn't recommend it personally due to the large quantity of things that break easily and the amount of screws to be taken out that are easy to lose.
