Re: unable to load games

Please don't suggest "putting the disk in the other way around". Duh. This seems to be a real problem, could it be a scratched/dirty/damaged CD ? or faulty reader ?

Re: unable to load games

I have a very similar problem that my wii console gives me black screen with disk read error every time I inserted a new disc that worked previously. The way I worked around this problem is by
1. ejecting the disc
2. powering off(hold the power button for about 10 seconds)
3. unplugging the power cord
4. waiting one minute or so
5. plugging in again and re-inserting disc
This worked every time when I switched disc.

I have a Nintendo Wii and every time when i put in Wii sports resort it always says unable to read disk check Wii operation manual guide for help troubleshooting. but i lost my Wii operation manual guide...

Your disk may be scratched or dirty, make sure it is inserted the correct way. try inserting another wii game and see if it can read that.

You can try to clean your disk using this guide, but if its scratched then it wont help.

My nintendo wii is sayign unable to read disc

You might have a dirty lens. You can purchase a cleaning kit online or at your local game store. You should also get something to clean your game disks if they are dirty.

I got wii fit the disk wont work !!!!!!

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

To install wii fit

    "Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" / "Eject the Game Disc" Error Message.
    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

  • 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.

Unable to read disc message

Could be a damaged disk (check closely), a bad disk (did it work before) or your lens could be going out (which makes it unable to read the disk). Have you tried putting another disk in to see if you get the same problem?

Unable to start games

We have this exact same problem right out of the box yesterday. Just talked to Nintendo today and they are now sending another Wii which we should get in 3-4 buisness days. As long as you are putting the disk in the correct way and disk is clean and you tried on multiple disks, really nothing else can be done it seems. Had bought at target so wanted to exchange but they are out of them and do not know when they will get them, so this is fastest way.
