With the Wii it can either do this when it's moved or it can be a fault (although both uncommon). If it's doing it all the time with every disc then it's a fault with the machine and you need to talk to the store you bought it from, or Nintendo. If it's only done it one time to one disc then chances are it won't happen again

I put a game in and the syestem says insert game disk. i put the game in and it says cd is being checked and the same thing happens

Sounds like the optical drive/CD reader has failed on the system especially if it turns out the same result regardless of the disk you've inserted. It looks like you'll have to buy a replacement optical drive or buy a completely new system. If you're only trying the one disk, it may just need cleaning or replacing.

Got a game cube for my son. inserted a game and it says no disk. we blew in the cube and made sure the games aren't scratched. still says no disk. what do you think we should do next?

Well there seems to be something wrong with the eye of the disc reader in the game cube. It looks like a White little orb in the center where the disc goes. You have to buy a special cleaner for it. And use only a certain type of cloth. Ask your local video game shop if they have some. just call them and I am Sure they would be happy to assist you.

Can not read disc

What console are you using? if it cannot read the disk that means it is either the disk. Or the disk reader Lazar. might i advise calling your insurance company if you have warranty. Or if not ring the manufacturer.
hope this has helped.

A Game I bought will not work.

Check the inside ring of the disc for a v shape deformation or cracks. also look for dimples. That is usually the problem with some older 360 games.

Model SD-V290U: DVD rejects disk, will not play

The drive belt that locks the disk in place is worn out. The belt slips and the plastic pinion gear fails to move the rack gear. This is necessary to slide the cam into place that raises the disk to the centering ring. When it is raised, to micro switches are made that tells the system the disk is loaded properly at which point the lazer reader will advance to detect the disk.

Disk in h is not formatted

As I understand, you inserted a disk in a card reader and you were connecting the card reader into your computer, is it right? If yes, then the problem could be the disk or the card reader.

* First, try connecting the card reader into different USB port.
* Try connecting it in a different computer just to isolate the problem.
* If the problem is isolated to the disk and card reader, try inserting another disk just to make sure that the card reader is working and plug it in to the computer.
* If another disk works with the problem card reader, then buy a new disk. But if same problem occurs though you use another disk, try another card reader.

Doing these steps would let you know which is causing the problem.

Have a great day!
