Hi , my wii is saying "unable to to read the


If you have tried another disc and still no luck then the laser "eye" is dirty. I would open the slot and try to gently spray canned air, or Air Duster to clean the eye. If still no effect call nintendo.

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.

Wii "unable to read disc"


If Wii gives Unreadable disc, 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.

    "Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" / "Eject the Game Disc" Error Message.
    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

  • 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.

My wii discs wont work


You're putting them in the right way, right?

I have had this problem once or twice. Try unplugging the console from the wall socket for a minute, then plug it back in.

Another thing you must do is update the system's firmware. I believe you need an internet connection on your console for this, but you may be able to get a disc from Nintendo with the firmware.

Unable to load games


I have a very similar problem that my wii console gives me black screen with disk read error every time I inserted a new disc that worked previously. The way I worked around this problem is by
1. ejecting the disc
2. powering off(hold the power button for about 10 seconds)
3. unplugging the power cord
4. waiting one minute or so
5. plugging in again and re-inserting disc
This worked every time when I switched disc.
