Wii Play Not working

When my son puts in his new Wii Play disc we can't get the controls to work. Every other game and even the intro on this seem to work, but with the games we have no control. I have tried resyncing the controls with no success. Thanks for any suggestions!

Wii controller won't work with gamecube game in wii console

Gamecube games don't have the proper coding installed on the discs in order to receive commands from the Wiimote. You'll have to have a Gamecube controller to play Gamecube games even on the Wii console.

I put in a pre-owned game that just came fresh from gamestop, and it started going okay. It did the caution message and the list of sponsers, and when it started to play the intro, it froze. After a couple...

Maybe it was a one time only thing. If it continues again then just take the game back to them and get another one. If your wii is softmodded, check online what Cios you need to run the game.

Hi. my wii system will not play disc. Each disk I put in says error. Sometimes disc icon does not even appear in main wii menu.


It sounds like you will need a new laser or a wii drive motor.

You will have to send this system in for repair.

Goodluck and I hope it works!

The wii will not read the discs

First of all, I don't think you can put a DS lite game on the Wii, but if you could, then you should try considering getting Wii Internet and see if that will help. For the Wii discs, you could clean the disc and try it then, if it doesn't work, there is a product called Wii Lens Cleaner (something like that) and it cleans your disc reader. It helped me and it only costed $10. This can be purchased at any game store or at Walmart. Hope that helps.

Wii fit plus game disc will not load up - it is a replacement - it seems to run and then stop and the 'please insert disc' message comes up - any ideas please?

Your laser reader inside of the Wii is either dirty or needs to be replaced. Try cleaning it with the following wet lens cleaner (NEVER use dry cleaners on Video Game Systems - it can ruin the laser). If this doesn't help, your laser or DVD drive inside of the Wii may need to be replaced. The same website sells the parts if you need it -- but if the disc is reading them stopping, it may just be a dirty laser lens:

New Wii Game Unable to read disc

You may have to replace the laser in the wii so that it can read the disc, if this isn't thecase, then I don't have any other solutions for you.

My nintendo wii wont load discs??

Here's a page on the official Nintendo site that might help.

"Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" If you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures (click here).
  • If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.
