Wii Keeps rejecting game disc

I cant seem to get the Wii to except the wii sports disc. I have set the Wii up so everything there looks ok but when i put the game in it just seems to spit it straight out. i have put it in different ways, cleaned it and tried again. I've looked over all the manuals and i can't see what's wrong. Can anyone help me?

Re: Wii Keeps rejecting game disc

I would suggest simply returning the disc to the retailer. It is very possible that there is nothing wrong with the wii but the disc is bad. If the disc works for the retailer or you get an exchange and have the same problem, it may suggest the drive in the wii is faulty. This should be covered under warranty and even if the machine is over a year old, shouting loud enough may convince Nintendo to fix it FOC. Call for a warranty claim and see how you get on.

I just bought a Wii last night and it is not reading "Wii Sports" it keeps saying an error has occured

It's one of two problems:

1. The Wii Sports disc is damaged. Did you try any other games? How does the back of the disc look? Do you know someone else with a Wii? Try another game [or try the Wii Sports disc on another Wii] to determine if it's the game, or the Wii. If it's the game disc -- simple, replace it. If it's the Wii:

2. The Wii laser/DVD drive could be messed up. This is usually a problem with either the laser inside of the Wii's drive, or some other issue going on inside of the DVD drive. The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

You might want to try a Loader instead of the Wii's disc channel. Are you playing original games or backups? You might have broke the Homebrew channel with the 4.0 upgrade. Check out this Wii homebrew set of tutorials to see if it'll help

The wii disc keeps on rejecting when insert

Does it do it with any disc you insert or just one particular disk? Have you tried flipping the disc over to other side and then inserting it?

Sports disc not loading rejecting all the time

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.

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.
