You should upgrade the Wii when it says too or when you get a game that does not work, the Wii is like a computer, it need "add on's to run properly.

also make sure that you have the proper memory cards, the wii does not like some cards and wont play games if you have them.

None of the games work on my wii it says unable to read disk refer to wii operations manual for troubleshooting. that is the only channel that doesnt. yall help me out please. thx o and i just upgraded...

This is a technical problem than only Nintendo could fix. Call them and they will either tell you how to fix it or they will ask you to send it in and they will fix it themselves.Also, you cannot upgrade the disk channel. It is hardly even considered a channel because all it does is start your game.

Some times i can not go back to yhe wii menu from the game

If you didnt hold the power button at least 10 seconds then thats probably why it didnt turn off. Usually people say that you can fix it by bringing it to a store or replacing it, but what I think is try cleaning the console and see what happens. Hope that helps.

Its saying if i don't want to accept an upgrade i can shut down my wii console and if my wii console has an unauthorized technical modification, this upgrade could cause inoperability of my console.

Usually the upgrades are a good thing as they may contain new features or bug fixes, To accept the upgrade you MUST have a connection to the internet, All its saying is the upgrade is optional, you dont have to install it but they recommend it, and unless you have altered things with the hardware you should be fine :)

Wii Won't read disk

easy fix
call nintendo. If its only one particular disc thats having the error, its the game. If it is more than one game, its the system. Call them and talk about troubleshooting and see if there is anything you have not tried.

Do you still get a wii menu? The games you borrowed, what were they? Are you connected to the internet? All these questions may sound strange but its a process of elimination.

Fails to read disks other than Super Mario Galaxy

Here is why Wii wants you to upgarde,

Wii wants you to upgarde since last ver. can not be hacked. So Wii makes people to upgarde by using the games, so that the more you upgarde the harder it is to hack the Wii. If Wii can be hacked, you can play copied games, you can go to blockbuter get a game, copy the game in computer and make copies at of it, so that you dont have to buy the game. And your wii is able to read the copied games

Now lets start with your problem,

Well now it will be even harder to downgrade the frimware of you Wii. (Wii doesnt want you to downgarde). Try to upragde it again if that doent work then upgarde it from the Wii's web page at

There can be a problem in you Wii's upgardeded frimware.
