Call customer service. It seems that some Wii's are scratching dics. The warranty will cover it. Look on the readable side of the disc and see if it is leaving circular scatches. Mine is doing the same thing to certain games.

Your control needs synchronising to your console.
To do this open hatch door on front of your console take the back of your control theres a red button in both press them wait a about 30 secs remote should work..

I am getting the error message, Unable to read disc. I just purchased this Wii online for Christmas and it arrived yesterday. One game played for a minute. I connected to the internet and updated the...

I don't think it should cost anything assuming you just got it on Christmas, it should be under warranty.
Regardless, try using a CD based drive cleaner. If that doesn't help, it's highly likely the laser is going bad.

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 wii wont load any games

We had similar problems after buying Super Smash Bros Brawl. I noticed that the Wii could read which disc was in the system but could not load it in order to play. This seemed like a shortage of memory to me (but the error message does not indicate a memory issue). I bought a 1 gig sd memory card for the Wii and now it works perfectly. BTW the kid at the Best Buy store did not think this would work, but it did. Good Luck.
