Unable to load game disc into console

The console will not accept any game. Every time I try to put a game in the console you can hear the unit sound like its spinning, but when you tip the unit the game simply falls out. Do you know what could cause this?

When i put a disc in my xbox 360 it makes clicking noises & wont load the disc

try another disc or two, try standing the xbox vertically or laying it horizontally, open the tray and check from obstructions, perhaps blow air into it, and if this behavior continues contact microsoft support as the unit is likely damaged.

Unable to read disc message. I put the game disc into the WII and it won't play. Keep getting a 'Unable to read disc message for any game disc that I try to insert.

This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Nintendo and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Wii unable to accept/eject disc making buzzing sound

  • When the disks were put in/taken out the little plastic clips in side the wii may have broken off. Might be stuck near the motor. Gently shake while rotating the the wii with all the cords off with no game inside. listen for anything loose. If your lucky the piece will go to another part of the wii. Best thing is to find someone to take it apart to check.

We can't load the games. the machine is unable to read disc,

Did you check to make sure you have the disk facing the right way? If that isn't the problem then try resetting it. Open the small door that you put a SD card into. It is located on the front of the console. There is a red button in there. This is used to reset your system. Hopefully this will work.
Good luck.

Unable to read disk error

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

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.
