Is this is a problem with every disk or just one? If just one disk then read below. If every disk then it might be the reader on the Wii Console.

Firstly there are several reasons while this "unable to read disk" message applies ranging from incorrect handling of the DVD to improper loading of the game disk; your DVD drive could also be faulty. The good thing about Wii troubleshooting the unable to read disk problem is not that difficult.
You will want to make sure that your disk is being loaded properly. If your Wii console is positioned in the vertical position then you should have the label on the Wii disk facing to the right. If however you have a horizontally positioned console then the label of course should be facing upwards.
If the game is being loaded properly but the unable to read disk problem still applies then you will want to inspect the game disk itself. If there are any scratches on the disk then this can be the problem. You will want to get a micro fiber clothe or similar and give the disk a wipe, the same goes if there are dirty fingerprints or similar on the disk. Make sure that you wipe from the center of the disk outwards, never wipe round and round.
If the problem still persists then you may need to get a DVD lens cleaner and give your console the once over with that. These can easily be picked up at your local video store for around $5.00.
While there are a few more common Wii troubleshooting problems with regards to "unable to read disk" these are the more common solutions.

If none of your games are working then it might be a Wii system issue. Contact Nintendo or your local store to see if you are still in warranty.

SOURCE: Brand new Wii - Will not read any of the disks

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.

SOURCE: Some wii & gamecube disc will play .others

Usually when this happens there is a problem with the disk itself not the console. First look at it in the light and see if its dirty or scratched up. If it is indeed dirty then use a lint free cloth. Such as a microfiber, or glasses cloth, Wipe in consistent stroke from the center to the outside in straight lines. Work your way around the disk. You may also dampen part of the rag and use it first then use the other part to dry it. Then try it again. I hope this helps, please rate this. Thank You

New Wii Game Unable to read disc


You may have to replace the laser in the wii so that it can read the disc, if this isn't thecase, then I don't have any other solutions for you.

Wont read discs


If it only does this for this one game, you may have a defective game disc, it happens. Often, if you have just recently purchased it, you can return it to the store and tell them that it was defective and get a new one. If not, you can always try cleaning it though I doubt that's the problem.
nintendo.com says "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."
