The Wii console will not play game discs (disc is not recognized) System displays either error message "Unable to read disc" or "Disc could not be read"
Wii Game Discs are region locked, and can only be played on hardware from the same country where the game was released. (A European game cannot be played on a North American system, for example.)
What To Do:
The Wii console is only compatible with Wii and GameCube discs. It is not compatible with DVDs or discs made for other home consoles. Verify that the disc you are inserting is compatible with the Wii system. An error message may display if the disc is ejected during play. Return to the HOME Menu before changing discs. Verify that the console is placed correctly. If the Wii console is lying flat, the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot. If the Wii console is standing vertically, the power button should be on the top and the console should be in the stand. Note: Only Wii consoles with model number RVL-001 are intended to be placed vertically. (Learn more) Verify that the disc is being inserted properly. If the console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards. If the console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right. Check the non-printed side of the game disc for dirt or severe damage (such as scratches or cracks). If the disc is dirty, try cleaning the game disc. (How to) If the disc is damaged or scratched, it will need to be replaced. Please click here for replacement options. If the problem occurs with only one game disc, there may be a problem specific to that game. Click here to check our list of specific game issues. Make sure only licensed accessories are being used. Unlicensed products do not undergo Nintendo's testing and evaluation process. They may not work at all with our game systems, and they may have compatibility problems with certain games or accessories.
If the game disc is ejecting on its own, this could indicate a problem with the disc or with the disc drive.
What To Do:
If you are experiencing this problem while attempting to play a Nintendo GameCube Game Disc, check the model number on your Wii console. Only Wii consoles with model number RVL-001 are compatible with Nintendo GameCube Game Discs. (learn more) If the issue is occurring with all games or all of one type of game (Wii or GameCube), this indicates a problem with the system. To begin the repair process, click here.
The noise is the wii working extra hard to read the disk the lens might be dirty. Your wii might also have a bomb in it.............Just kidding. I would try cleaning the inside and if all is bad send it in to get fixed
This is a hardware failure. Sending it Nintendo is the only option. Unless you think you have the skills to repair it yourself. Here is the link to Nintendo http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/repair_options.jsp If you want to repair it yourself you need a wii dvd drive. Any version works.
Well i have expirienced the same thing. what you have to do is put the console face down so that the game slot is facing the floor then press the eject button but if that doesnt work you have to heat up the system by leaving it on for about 3 hours then tilt it and press the button and that should get the disc out for you.
