Is the label facing up the right way? Make sure it is. Also, make sure the game disc you are trying to play does not have fingerprints on it or an excessive amount of scratches. If it has fingerprints, you can just breath onto it with your mouth and wipe it with your shirt, or if you have a microfibre cloth (like a glasses cloth) just wipe it with that. If it still doesn't work and you have it the right way up, it's clean with no scratches and everything, it may be the laser disc reader. I hope this helps.

You can also go to this official Nintendo link for more info and help. Source(s): http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/gameDiscs.jsp#wont_play

Thats one of the problems with the Wii. There comes a time where it will stop reading discs. This might be caused because the lens is dirty. You can try this tutorial too:

Unable to read any game disc that is entered into the console


either the lens is dirty or it needs replacing. If its dirty use a lens cleaner to clean it. If that doesnt solve the problem then you will need a new lense for the dvd drive, or maybe even a new dvd drive itself

Wii unable to read dvd


Hi,

Try cleaning the lens with an approved laser lens cleaner.Check to see if you can hear the disc being spun. If not, the spindle motor is bad.If your discs are spinning but aren't being read, your laser could be damaged. Contact Nintendo for service, unless you're comfortable replacing the laser yourself. Buy one on line and get it replaced.


Thank you!

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.

Cannot Read Disc?


I would say get a cleaning CD with the bristles on the Cd to clean the lens of the Wii. When you get it all it does is spin in the CD tray and clean the lens inside the CD tray. That should fix your problem the lens is probably dirty. If it doesn't leave a comment and ill try to help again.
