What your looking at here, is a laser read problem.
You can either try cleaning the lasers head, with a cd/dvd laser cleaner disk or similar. or alternatively, search e-bay or other on-line stores. to obtain a replacement laser unit.
there are unfortunately, no other practical options.
Thankyou for using Fixya.

Can You Use Nintendo DS With Wii?
The portable Nintendo systems, Nintendo
DS, DS Lite, and DSi, are connectible with the Nintendo Wii system,
much like the compatibility between Nintendo's Gameboy Advance and
Gamecube video game systems.

to do when your Wii Has problems with reading disks and you have
tried cleaning the disk.
does not mean your Disk Drive needs replacing more often than not it
just needs the laser to be readjusted.
can send this off to Nintendo if your still in warranty because it is
included in there free fixes so they will do the collecting for you,
fix it and return the Wii to you, all for free, but it will take 4-6
you are out of warranty its the same process as above but its $150 in
a new Disk drive would cost around $75 for a compatible one and you
may need some one to fit it at a cost as well.
I recommend is a Wii
Repair Guide that will show you the simple steps yourself, you
will be up and running again in less than an hour and the cost is far
less than option 2 & 3
Feel Free to leave me a comment if you need further assistance.
