    hi, our wii is almost 12 months old and had many hours of play. in the last 2 weeks we started getting alot of "unable to read disc" messages. sometimes we only have to press reset, but most times we have to switch the power off and some discs still will not work. our wii seems to have a mind of its own, because some games that we try to play that will not work no matter what we do, will work the next day 1st time with no probs.

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

Unable to read disc message. I put the game disc into the WII and it won't play. Keep getting a 'Unable to read disc message for any game disc that I try to insert.

This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Nintendo and see if the unit is still under warranty.

I bought Super Mario Smash Bros Brawl game for nintendo wii. I keep getting a message saying unable to read disc, it is a brand new disc and all my other games work perfectly.However this is the second of...

The reason for this is that the "eye" in your Wii to read the disc is too dusty to read the disc, as it is a 2 layered disc. Call up Nintendo and ask them for help, they will tell you what to do and they will clean out your Wii for free.

I keep getting an error that reads "unable to write to file". It was working fine and now I get that error about every 3rd scan.This is on an Epson Perfection 1670 scanner.

Just check if you have enough space where you are directing the scanning software to save the scanned images. You may be running short of disc space.

To install wii fit

    "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.

Unable to read new games but can read old, used games???

Things like this are usually caused by overlooked manufacturing discrepancies. It may be best to contact Sony with your system's model info, serial number, and date of manufacture. They may be able to help you under warranty. Greg Holiday
