My Wii will not let you insert any discs.


Discs Eject on Their Own
Situation:

Game disc is ejecting on its own
 

Applies To: All Games

 

Important!

If the game disc is ejecting on its own, this could indicate a problem with the disc or with the disc drive.

 

What To Do:

If you are experiencing this problem while attempting to play a Nintendo GameCube Game Disc, check the model number on your Wii console. Only Wii consoles with model number RVL-001 are compatible with Nintendo GameCube Game Discs. (learn more)
If the issue is occurring with all games or all of one type of game (Wii or GameCube), this indicates a problem with the system. To begin the repair process, click here.

It dont wont to read the disc


Well i just went to put in Sonic hereos and tried my other gamecube games and no scratched discs and the discs look to be fine so the laser needs to be replaced or is a weak laser then. But the wii is fine so my gamecube might have internal problems then.

Wii controller won't work with gamecube game in wii console


Gamecube games don't have the proper coding installed on the discs in order to receive commands from the Wiimote. You'll have to have a Gamecube controller to play Gamecube games even on the Wii console.

Have Mario Kart Double Dash Gamecube disc. Trying to play on my Wii. It says, "the disc cannot be read, refer the instruction booklet". Don't have one. Any ideas?


There have been a couple of flaws in how the Wii reads Gamecube games, so this could be for a couple of reasons.
1. Some games simply just cant be read on the Wii, but it is completely determined by the game...not the Wii. This is a flaw found in mostly Gamecube games and sometimes Wii games. I have heard of Super Smash Brothers Brawl not working on certain Wii's. In your case, with Mario Kart Double Dash, it could just be that the game simply cannot be read. If this is true, then there is nothing that can be done. (You can test this by putting the game in somebody else's Wii)
2. A more common problem is scratches or fingerprints. If this is the case, then get scratch removal at the store. If you don't want to, then toothpaste will sometimes work.
3. If all else fails...read the instructions booklet.

Hi im trying to use my wii but it keeps saying unable to read disc , why do you think this is ?


Hi there!
When your Wii is having issues reading discs, there could be a number of problems:
  1. game disc is dirty or scratched
  2. disc drive is dirty
  3. the disc is entered into the drive incorrectly
  4. the disc is a game from another region (i.e. trying to play a European PAL gam on and American NTSC Wii
  5. the disc is not a supported Wii or Gamecube disk
  6. the disc drive is broken
  7. the game disc you are using is a counterfeit or burned game
Please try follow the following:
  1. if the game disc is dirty, clean the disc with a soft cotton cloth, scratches can usually be repaired at a local blockbuster or Gamestop if they are light
  2. if the disc drive is dirty you will need to use a cd drive cleaner,you can find them for under $10 at most stores
  3. make sure the disc is entered into the drive correctly, the blank/shiny side of the disk should be facing towards the power button
  4. if the game disc you are using is from a different region of your system (PAL and NTSC) you will NOT be able to play it on your system, please return it and purchase a copy of the game for your region
  5. Make sure you are using a supported Wii or Gamecube disc
  6. counterfeit or burned games will not work on your Wii
  7. if none of these are correcting your problem you most likely have a broken disc drive and will need to either return your Wii for a new one or have it repaired.
Hope this helps!

Is it possible to play Wii games on the Gamecube simply by changing the disc reader and graphics card?


I don't think so. The Gamecube disk tray is specialized for Gamecube discs, which are pretty small compared to regular game discs. Also, the Nintendo Gamecube graphics are modeled by ATI. Maybe some hardcore modding to your Gamecube, and it could work, but I have no idea for sure. Im not sure anyone had ever accomplished this, so honestly, you're going to know what you're doing to accomplish this. I know I wouldn't.

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.

Are Nintendo game disc backwards compatible with the game cube?


No. The gamecube discs are more the size of a minidisc and the ones for wii are full size discs like a DVD. My son is also 6 (going on 7 of course!) I decided to take the plunge after a long time battling with this decision. I just put the wii up high so he gets my help to load/change discs. He LOVES it! He is so great at it too! He loves the WiiSports, which the console comes with. (He even beats me at bowling!) It's a fun set up. I love that there are many games we can play together as a family, Cranium Kadooi, WiiSports, Playground, SmartyPants, as well as Active Life is due out soon and that looks to be awesome for some indoor activity! It is hard to make the decision to spend that much. I have been hanging onto the idea the last 2 years, that the price would drop and I would buy it then. Well, the price does not go down. In fact, it's hard to find at the retail price as it is hard for the stores to keep on the shelf! Good luck with the gamecube. If you still aren't ready to switch, maybe just let him pic out a few new games. This is sure to renew his interest in Gamecube! AS it is hard to find gamecube games in stores new, definately look on ebay.com for new and slightly used (which are great buys and I've never had a bad experience) gamecube games. Barnyard is a super cute one!

Please leave me a great rating if you found my reply helpful. Thank you! :)
