It also makes a relatively loud clicky sound as the hardware tries to read the disk, it usually does this either right as the system is booting up, or after i select the game from the wii menu. it will almost always do this the first time a new game is played. once it works, the problem doesn't happen again until I change games. it is frustrating, the moment I hear that noise, i know the disc will not work...is this a common problem?

Re: wii randomly cannot read game disk
With all items things have defaults. This sounds like you CDROM is going out. If it is still under warranty I would send it back and Nintendo should be able to fix this problem. IF the warranty has expired I would try to replace it myself.

Maybe the disc reader in the Wii is having problems, this could be natural for the Wii, but if it isn't reading the disc, then try talking to the nintendo company and ask them that there is a loud noise in the Wii when its reading discs, they should know what to do. My Wii does that sometimes, especially Super Smash Brothers Brawl, but it still works though. hope that helps.
My friends Wii does the same. As long as the Wii isn't lagging, glitching, or randomly shutting off while in use, everything is alright. Also, make sure your Wii is able to read disks properly, because that is the main cause that leads to the buzzing noise. If the noise is to annoying to stand, call Nintendo, and ask for a repair to be done, I'm sure they will fix it up. Hope this helps!
Gees.. this symptom sounds like a loose part (a screw or cable end?) in the dvd-rom, get it back to the shop you buy and have it replaced if warranty still valid!
If you didn't dropped it and it came out of the box like that, it's definitely manufacturer's fault!
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
This is a hardware failure. Sending it Nintendo is the only option. Unless you think you have the skills to repair it yourself. Here is the link to Nintendo http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/repair_options.jsp
Hi Sky606, have you tried cleaning the game disk? Have you tried using other game disks in the wii to make sure it's not just one disk that is causing the problem. Do you have a Nintendo Wii CD / DVD Discs and Lens Auto Cleaning System ? If you don't you might want to purchase one and see if that helps, because your wii lens might need cleaning ! If all of that fails,your wii may need repairs, the lens that reads the CD/DVD could need adjustment or replacement ! One other small note,I always have a small external fan blowing on my wii when in use so that the wii wont over heat. Heat kills electronics ! I Hope this advice helps.
