There's a product called Wii Lens Cleaner (something like that) and it can clean your disc reader. It only costs $10 and can be purchased at any game store or Walmart. It really works and it helped me. Hope that helps.

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 disc message


Hithere, you could try a few different things some harder and less practical todo than others so try in this order
  1. If it's just one game your having issues with the ensure game disk is clean and free from scratches (use the microfiber cloth to clean)
  2. Unplug Wii from the power for 2 minutes, plug back in and power up and test game.
  3. If all games are having this issue then laser in your Wii may be faulty so contact nintendo to get repaired here.

Reads game disc can not be read, sometimes even on newer games. It has been doing this on and off since we bought the system.


Did you buy it new? If so, you have a 1 year warranty with Nintendo. Give them a call.

"Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" / "Eject the Game Disc" Error MessageIf you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.
  • 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

  • Check our list of specific game issues to see if there is a known issue with that particular title.
  • 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.

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.
