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.

Hello, my wii wont spin any games at all! if i put in a disc, i can only hear "click click click" and nothing happens. in disc channel it says "wont able to read disc". i tried again...


When a Wii breaks, it is almost always the disc drive. Both I and 4 other people I know had the disc drive in our Wii's die within 1 year of purchase. Based on your description, this is certainly what has happened to yours. Normally, I would advise you to send the console to Nintendo for repair. If the Wii is under warranty they will perform such repairs for free. However, since your friend opened the console, it will no longer be under warranty. You will have to pay for the repairs.

You can also attempt to repair it yourself by ordering a replacement drive from a parts seller online or from ebay. But if you are not electronically inclined, I would advise you to send ti to a professional. As a last alternative you can sell your broken device on ebay and put that money towards the purchase of a new Wii console, as they are relatively inexpensive.

Games discs purchased in the USA do not work on the UK model? Message on screen "could not read Disc"


The Wii console is designed to only recognize the disc in that region.
If you insert a disc from another region, the Wii can't read it.
You live in the UK, for example. If you insert discs that aren't purchased in the UK (like the USA), the Wii can't read it.

Wii console will not read Wii Resort Disc?


The Wii Sports Resort disc is either dirty or scratched. A disc cleaning procedure can be found on pg. 24 of the Wii Operations Manual: System Setup. If the Wii still doesn't read the disc, the Wii itself could be damaged. Turn the power OFF and unplug the AC adapter, then contact Nintendo Customer Service. (1-800-255-3700 in the USA and Canada)

Wont read discs


If it only does this for this one game, you may have a defective game disc, it happens. Often, if you have just recently purchased it, you can return it to the store and tell them that it was defective and get a new one. If not, you can always try cleaning it though I doubt that's the problem.
nintendo.com says "If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options."
