Won't recognize the disc as a game... how do we fix this? Its a brand new Wii game.


Check the bottom of the Game Disc (the side without any labels or writing) for any dirt or damage (such as cracks, scratches, etc.).



If the games look significantly damaged, such as with scratches or cracks, it will need to be replaced.



If the game looks dirty (fingerprints, smudges), try cleaning the Game Discs. If the problem persists, the Game Discs will need to be replaced. or Click here to download repair guide

Tip

PS3 Optical Drive Failure.


Have you had your Ps3 drive tell you its just will not read?

Here are some major causes:

1. Dirty drive.
2. Motor not spinning the disc fast enough.
3. Bad optical laser.

Step 1

Listen for the drive does it spin up?
Listen for the read head.
Put a audio disc in does it play?

If a audio disc plays but not dvd,blueray, or game disc you got a bad laser.

I recommend you do the following:

1. Make sure you match up you serial number on your unit.
2. Purchase the whole kit not just the laser.

The kit looks like this:


ae2a243.jpgThe cost of these drives are from $50 to $120 respectively. I do not suggest Ebay I would suggest a Store that sales these with warranty intact. Do not get fouled by ebay scams.

Thanks for reading my tips. Please do leave a positive rating. Thanks for using fixya.com.

When we insert game discs in our wii, it will let us play for about 2 minutes, then give us a message that reads, "disc cannot be read, please refer to wii ooperations manual." I ordered the wii...


Check to see if there are any scratches on the disc. Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating "Disc Read Error" or something to that effect. With some scratched discs, the data cannot be read and the game console may not even recognize the discs at all, giving you error messages etc. Best remedy for starters, is to try clean the discs and make sure there are no smudges or dirt marks left on the play-side of the discs. If there are any scratches on the discs, they will need repairing.


Most Game Discs, DVD's and CD's can be fixed quite easily back to "As Good As New Condition". Some home remedies or cheap repair kits may help with some light marks or very light scratches on some discs, but a professional disc repair service is usually required to repair any discs with anything more than very light scratches.

Check the "More Info" & "FAQ" Sections for further details on game disc repairs and related matters.

If you tried some home remedies and they have not worked, try sending the disc off for repair. Contact the site above for advice on repair and shipping.


Hope this Helps!!!

Disc won't play


As the Wii uses discs that can be scratched, dirty, or otherwise damaged -- it's important to first check the disc.

Look for fingerprints or other smudge marks. If you have dirty marks on the disc, you can wash it off with regular dish soap and water. Not too much soap though. Make sure you dry it off with something very soft [like a microfiber cloth] before you put it back into your Wii.

Second -- scratches will stop a disc from playing... or the disc will play until it gets to the scrached section then give you an error. Check and make sure there are not too many -- or deep scraches.

If a scratched game won't play through but other games play just fine -- chances are the disc is bad. However, if nothing is playing through on your Wii, not even a new game, there is a problem with the Wii's DVD drive. There is a laser in the drive that reads discs -- and many other moving parts in there. The following website sells the Wii DVD drives. It's not too difficult to replace yourself:

Unit wont read game disk. Plays Movie, and CD disk no problem..Any suggestions


Hi rico617,

There could be a couple of causes, and there could be a couple of solutions. The solutions may not be too fun though.

First possible problem:

1. Your discs could be scratched. If that's the case, clean them off as best you can with a soft cloth and all that. If that's not the case......

2. It could be that your disc drive is messed up.

If 1. didn't solve your problem, than here are some possible solutions regarding 2.

1. Your lens could be dirty, in which case you can try a lens cleaner (probably not the problem)

2. For many with this problem, formatting their hard drive (yes their hard drive, not disc tray) solves the problem. Unfortunately that's a major bummer because you'll lose everything on the drive.

3. If you're brave enough to go through the second one and it still doesn't solve it, you're going to have to send it in for repairs cause it looks like the disc tray is having incompatibility issues with your games (yeah I know it's dumb)

Best of luck man :)

Game cube won't read me discs


purchase a CD scratch removal kit from a store or garage sale. You will have a very hard time getting the scratches out smoothly without the machine.
