Sounds like the system needs repairing
Go here http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/wii_repair_home.jsp?problem=DISCALLGAMES for more information on getting your system repaired

or try removing all the cables leave for about 5 minutes replace the cables and power up again, check that the internet connection is sound then try a game again

How do you bypass the wii update to play the gmaes


The simplest thing to do is to use StartPatch, if your Wii is running System Menu 4 or higher, or StarFall if you're running System Menu 3.2. (To check your system menu version, go to you Wii Settings; the version number will be on the upper right.)
These applications can apply various modifications to your Wii, including one that will allow you to play import games and another that turns off the annoyingly repetitive system menu background music. There is also a modification that prevents the Wii from checking to see whether a game disk includes a system update. If you use StartPatch/StarFall to install this modification, you will no longer have game disks insisting on updating before you can play them.
It should be noted that these applications, since they rewrite your system flash memory, can be considered somewhat dangerous.

You can play it safer with Gecko OS, which lets you play import and update-insistent games without altering flash memory. It has been found that at least one game, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Gecko fails on.

Do you have a lot of things stored on your Wii? It may be that you don't have any available memory to download the update. Try deleting some old game data from games you don't play anymore.

Hope this helps!

I had a friend with the same issue. I just modded his wii and then he backed the games up to a hard drive and they played perfectly without an update being needed. The best place to get your wii modded is www.wiihdmods.com

System won't play new games - system up date failed


Try updating your Wii in the Settings menu, you will have to have a Wifi connecting to do this. If you do not have WiFi in your house can update your console via a New Release Wii Game such as Mario Kart

Most new games like Mario Kart or Madworld must have the 4.0 update to be played

hope this helps you some, please rate this solution

Game needs an update but when i try to update, it fails


It may be possible you bought a chipped Wii without knowing it. In this case, modchips have been known to cause problems when updating. Usually the drive will be able to read a disc from another region, but it will cause problems on an update. Otherwise, make sure your disc isn't damaged causing a bad read. If an error code is given upon failure to install, check that error code with Nintendo's website.

Check the system menu for any system updates.

Console will only play Wii Sports


Perhaps you could try the system software update feature in the wii settings menu, since your wii is connected to the internet.

Btw, do you have a USB to wired ethernet adapter for your Wii? I do not have a wired network port on my wii.
