Check that it is the correct region format Eg: PAL or NTSC depending on country, If after you have checked this and it is correct then it could be a simple case of faulty media. To check if it is faulty media check the disk in anotherr Wii console if possible. If all else fails contact the store at which you bought it or the software company that has distributed or made the game. I hope this helps.

Did you try turning the disk over so the label shows on the opposite side. With the Wii you have to put them in upside down it seems.

SOURCE: Wii unable to read disc

One of two things has probably happened and is the case 9 out of 10 times. Your drive may have gone bad either due to a chip failure or a laser failure. It's also possible if the unit has gotten hot that the connection to the drive isn't making good connection anymore. This happens a lot. To fix it you would have to open the unit up. I don't recommend this if you have never worked on consoles or other electronics before. If the unit is under warrenty send it in for repair. Otherwise you would have to pay for the repairs. You can also sell the unit as broken on ebay and generally recover quite a lot of your money.

If you are good with repairs of electronics you may choose to open it up and do some troubleshooting. There are several places on the internet that outline how to open the wii and how to troubleshoot it's problems. If you decide to go this route you will void any warrenty you might have. However sometimes this is about the only solution people have without spending money for Nintendo to fix it.

SOURCE: Wii console won't read disc

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

Why my wii skylanders giants won't read cd


This will depend on a few things.

1. If sky landers is the only game that will not work then it is likely that it is scratched or damaged in a way that makes it difficult to read. You can buy special cleaner for your cd to help with this if the damage is moderate to minimal. Or use a home remedy like tubing a banana on the side to be read and wiping it all off with a microfiber cloth and giving it a quick rinse (never submerge) and drying. The banana fills in some of the scratches.

2. If you wii has a hard time reading any disc then you should buy a cleaning disc meant to go inside the wii and clean the reader. One designed for computers and CD players should work just fine.

Good luck!

Will not read disc


The disc is probably scratched, if it is I would recommend buying the game again. If not then see if any oher discs are not working if others are messing up as well then it may be an issue with the wii.

Skylanders SWAP Force
  1. With the toy on the Portal, select Pause.
  2. Select Skylander.
  3. Select Manage.

  2. Return to the Main Menu.
  3. Open Settings.

Your Skylanders toy will now work again.

If the screen turns black after returning to the game, try again starting with Step 1.

The Wii will not read the disc


"Unable to read disc" error happened today for the first time on my Wii. I positioned it horizontally and tapped on the top while it was reading a disc and it started the game. This temporary solution might bring you immediate, but probably not long lasting satisfaction.
