Umd will not play

Sounds like the UMD drive died. If it makes sound like it is grinding it is having problems with reading the disk. One thing you can try is open the psp and look down in the slot. Take the drive head(the part that moves back and forth) and gently(and please be very gentle with it)push it down.

I had a Sony tech tell me to do this to mine and it worked. By the way, what model do you have and how old is it? what is the condition of the UMD you are playing?

thanks and hope I help. Post in the comments with any extra info and I will help further.

Maybe the disc reader in the Wii is having problems, this could be natural for the Wii, but if it isn't reading the disc, then try talking to the nintendo company and ask them that there is a loud noise in the Wii when its reading discs, they should know what to do. My Wii does that sometimes, especially Super Smash Brothers Brawl, but it still works though. hope that helps.
