Hi im trying to use my wii but it keeps saying unable to read disc , why do you think this is ?


Hi there!
When your Wii is having issues reading discs, there could be a number of problems:
  1. game disc is dirty or scratched
  2. disc drive is dirty
  3. the disc is entered into the drive incorrectly
  4. the disc is a game from another region (i.e. trying to play a European PAL gam on and American NTSC Wii
  5. the disc is not a supported Wii or Gamecube disk
  6. the disc drive is broken
  7. the game disc you are using is a counterfeit or burned game
Please try follow the following:
  1. if the game disc is dirty, clean the disc with a soft cotton cloth, scratches can usually be repaired at a local blockbuster or Gamestop if they are light
  2. if the disc drive is dirty you will need to use a cd drive cleaner,you can find them for under $10 at most stores
  3. make sure the disc is entered into the drive correctly, the blank/shiny side of the disk should be facing towards the power button
  4. if the game disc you are using is from a different region of your system (PAL and NTSC) you will NOT be able to play it on your system, please return it and purchase a copy of the game for your region
  5. Make sure you are using a supported Wii or Gamecube disc
  6. counterfeit or burned games will not work on your Wii
  7. if none of these are correcting your problem you most likely have a broken disc drive and will need to either return your Wii for a new one or have it repaired.
Hope this helps!

JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166 DVD/CD ROM Drive does not acknowledge disc in drive after having the computer set back to factory


Does it not acknowledge dvd disc only or cd or dvd both. If it doesn't read the dvd disc, or able to play dvd disc, but able to exlpore regular cd's, then you have a codec error, and you need to download a dvd codec like powerdvd for it for your system to play dvd disc. Check to see if your dvd-rom drive appears in the "my computer" window, if it is there, but wouldn't be able to play anything, then it could be a driver issue. so make sure in the hardware , the drivers is installed and working properly. If it is working properly and driver is installed, then you got a bad drive, the optical laser lenses isnt reading or the spindle ain't working anymore if you don't hear disc being loaded when inserting the disc.

PS3 - will not read any type of disk


try getting a disc drive cleaner from any local Electronics retail store such as best buy, walmart . If that doesnt work you might have a broken optical lense and you will have to either take apart your console or call ps3 customer support and send your system to them.

Only 100gb of my 200gb hardrive are showing


Welcome to the wonderful world of windows disk size limitations.

What you are running into is the Windows 137GB Capacity Barrier AKA the 48-bit Logical Block Addressing Support for ATA (IDE), Serial ATA or ATAPI disc drives.

In English this means windows will only “acknowledge” between 127 and 137 Gig of a disk drive without some updates.

In most cases after he latest Service Packs are installed, any additional gigabytes will show up as unallocated space on the drive and you can create a second partition with the Windows disk management tools. Unfortunately this will mean that you have 2 partitions on the drive (if you placed your os on the drive or partitioned it before the updates were installed.).

If this is a secondary drive (in other words your OS is on a different disk drive), install all of the system updates first, you should then be able to format the entire drive as one partition.

Sony DVP-PQ2 problem


does it do this with every disk?

it could be one of several things, with some of these drives it uses a friction wheel at the center of the disk to "spin" the disk, this uses a circular rubber traction disk to grip the disk on both sides and then spins the disk using this traction, ( if the rubber there is not good it will not work well)

the other kind of spindle is a press on spindle which has a spring loaded grip mechanism where the disk is clipped onto the spindle,

the other issue is that you may have a driveband failure, this basically a rubber band which drives the main drivewheel from the drive motor, these can wear out or perish.

lastly, it could be a bad/burned out drive motor,

all of these issues can be fixed by the manufacturer and some of these can be fixed relatively easy by the user if the unit is out of warranty

Disc won't read


what type of zip disk are you trying to read? if it is larger than 100MB, the drive will not be able to read it.

can you read other disks? can you see the drive in my computer?

what operating system are you using, and how does does this drive connect to the computer? USB? Firewire?

Playstation won't read game disks


What you probably have is a disc read error, if you don't want to get a new system first you can always open it and repair yourself but that voids the warranty but is voided after the 30th day, I have tried it a few times in the past and it works but is time consuming and if your not careful you can break it beyond use. But if you're brave read this article.

DVD R burnt by pioneer drive couldn't be read by itself.


If there were compatability issues with the disc it would have been unable to burn to the dvd initially, the problems you mention are a sign that the reading in the dvd is failing and there's never a solution for problems as these, as it means that a replacement is needed, as the dvd writer arent worth repairing. I had the same thing exactly, but after a while it wouldnt even acknowledge that i had a writable dvd in the drive, but was ok with cd's. I think it is down to poor quality lasers, so as to keep the dvd writer prices down.
