    I just got my Wii after two years of hearing 'Sorry we're sold out' and it's hooked up properly but when I click on the Disc Menu it says 'Cannot read disc please read instruction manual and try again'. So I used a lense cloth to wipe all three discs from the centre outwards,turned off the power,inserted the disc and tried again, same error--cannot read disc repeated the same step until at last I had to call the 1-800 number and was offered one built by the tech's from the ground up for free. I mean my mother spent over $300.00 for this for me after I bucked the offer of a PS3!

Thanx for the help but at close to four a.m. last sunday morning, I tried again and now it works. I've gotten up to three star levels in My Sims.

My Wii Console just started making a noise when it is trying to read the disk. You can hear it spinning up very loud. I then tried to eject the disk and it made a very loud noise and wouldn't eject the...


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.

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.

Wii not starting up!


  1. Buy or rent a new Wii game that is made by Nintendo and intended for use in your region
  2. Step 2 Turn on the Wii, insert the game and let it load.
  3. Step 3 Wait as the firmware checker in the video game checks that the Wii's firmware needs to be updated. If this does not happen, it means no firmware checker is on the disc and another game will have to be obtained to try it again.
  4. Step 4 Follow the directions presented onscreen when the firmware checker has finished checking. The firmware will now be updated.
  5. Step 5 Eject the video game disc when the update is done and restart the Wii.
  6. Pray

Wii Game Disc Off Of Amazon


Have you checked the disc for smudges? It sounds like you have a dirty disc. If that's not it, have you tried other discs in your Wii?
If the disc worked before, it should still work, unless:

A. Disc is dirty
B. Disc is scratched
C. Wii isn't playing any discs

Disc read error


if you bought it from wal-mart, you might have to get it fixed because wal-mart usually throws their merchandise into their truck. I mean they THROW it and dont care.
