Not reading disk

I got a new wii as a gift and it wont read the wii sports disk. I followed all the trouble shooting suggestions but it still didn't work. I assumed it was the disk. Today I bought a new game, guitar hero, and I'm having the same problem.

Any ideas?

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 also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide

Try calling Nintendo. You may have a defective Wii.

Just explain to them whats going wrong. They should give you a new one at no charge. I am unsure of that though.

I'm having the same problem. Chances are it is not an error with your Wii console like everyone else is suggesting. The new Disney Infinity game is a dual layer disk that uses a lot of memory. It's a known issue that earlier versions of the Wii console may have difficulties reading this disk. The game manufacturer suggests updating your Wii firmware, and that solution has helped some people. However, it has not helped all. I had to throw this game out as it's rendered unusable for many Wii users.

Your disk may be scratched or dirty, make sure it is inserted the correct way. try inserting another wii game and see if it can read that.

You can try to clean your disk using this guide, but if its scratched then it wont help.

Nintendo wii message reads: error occured remove disc turn off console check operations manual for information! on 2 new games


Hi,

Some older Wii units also have trouble with Dual Layer Discs, which pack more info onto a disk like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime. If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. the other resolution for this is to change the laser on the system but it will cost you for that. Try to clean the lens first it might read the new disk.

Thanks for using Fixya.

New wii user. menu says it can't read the disk.


It's sometimes confusing which side is "up" for the Wii. Did you try flipping the game disc and re-inserting? Maybe that will help.
