Your Nintendo Wii can not properly read some portions of your Game Disk. The probable reasons are dirt on the lens or CD, or scratches on the CD. Try cleaning the CD using a soft cloth and clean the lens of your Wii console using a Lens Cleaner.

Hi just recently my psp cd rom case came off. as a result,it cant read the UMD. can anyone help? thanks nihal


Well, you should clean the CD and check for scratches and attempt to fit the case back on snug. If it still won't read it, you need a whole new game sadly.

I put in a game no scratchs or smuges it won't play.


You can try to run a lens cleaner through the xbox to clean it. You can find one here:

If that doesn't do anything for you you're going to have to call Microsoft to get it fixed. You can reach them at 1800myxbox.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Will not read disc


The disc may be too scratched up for the console. Try to clean the Disc with a microfiber cloth (or something that won't scratch it) and use a dvd lens cleaner on it to remove smudges.
If the disc is in good condition, then the laser on the Wii may be wearing out. That means that you will have to send the Wii to Nintendo to get it fixed or find someone who has Wii parts and knows how to take apart and repair a Wii.

Every time we try to load the game, a Error comes up saying that the disc cannot be read, or that an error has occured, and to remove the game disc and turn the wii off.

I own a ps2 slimline, but it seems to scratch my discs, it is on and off, nbut it can wreack some of my disks, i haven't opened it up,but i.ve cleaned inside the disk tray. What do i do?


Buy a dvd or cd cleaner disk and run it in your playstation console. You can purchase them at places like Walmart and they cost about five dollars (American). If your console is scratching disks, then it probably needs to be cleaned. Try wiping your disks with a lint free cloth and make sure that they are clean and not scratched before playing them. Clean your unit with a disk cleaner (run it through a couple of times and use the liquid that comes with it) and that should solve your problem.

The scratch that you are describing is the reason the will not work any longer. There is nothing you can do to fix the scratch. Unfortunately the data contained in the area of the disc that is scratched is vital to gameplay so you will no longer be able to play the game.

The best thing you could do is take it to your nearest Gamestop and have them use their cleaning machine on the disc, you might get lucky and have it fixed this way, although it is highly unlikely.

Sorry for your misfortune, hopefully I helped

I have a game that doesn't play and I've cleaned it with a home held machine dozens of times, not a store machine just to not get mixed up. It does several scratches though. Please send info as...


Do other games work? And if so then one of the scratches on the disc is fatal. There are some handy tips to fixing discs out there. Try youtube. I repaired one of my discs with toothpaste.

MY GRAND THEFT AUTO 4 WONT PLAY IT KEEPS STOPING THE GAME AND TELLING ME 2 CLEAN THE GAME WITH ACLOTH THEN PLAY IT THERE IS KIND OF BIG SCRATCH ON IT BUT ITS NOT THAT BIG SHOULD I JUST BUY ANEW ONE


Hi,
you could buy a new game, but it,s worth trying this disk repair solution first. i,ve been repairing game-music cds/dvds for a couple of years, with 80% sucessful results.
1:) Find an empty jewel Case ( plastic cd holder case ) put the game-disk into the case upside down. ** Underside Facing Up**
2:) Take a soft-cloth ** Yellow Duster Type** and apply a small amount Of T-Cut Or Toothpaste. to the cloth.
3:) holding the disk with one hand, to stop it moving. use your other hand to work the cutting paste into the disk, around the scratched area. using light to medium pressure.
4:) once you,ve polished the area around the scratch, using a clean piece of soft cloth, buff to a polish.
5:) once the scratch has been removed, polish with a light solution of furniture polish, to fill in any surface inperfections.

If your in the UK, i can repair the disk for you.
