I'm having the same problem. Chances are it is not an error with your Wii console like everyone else is suggesting. The new Disney Infinity game is a dual layer disk that uses a lot of memory. It's a known issue that earlier versions of the Wii console may have difficulties reading this disk. The game manufacturer suggests updating your Wii firmware, and that solution has helped some people. However, it has not helped all. I had to throw this game out as it's rendered unusable for many Wii users.

My Wii is not reading the disc


Unfortunately, no, you cannot format the Wii to accept different region codes.
But, you say the UAE is where you bought the Wii, which I assume is the United Arab Emirates? Which would be Region Code 2, which includes Europe, the Middle East, South Africa and Greenland.
Region code 1 includes only the United States of America and Canada.
However, if the Winter Sport 2012 is a dual-layer dvd disc, the Wii can have issues reading it. This is a common problem with the game Super Smash Bros. Melee. The Wii's laser reader was not initially designed to read such formats and may need cleaning in order to read the disc.
The Wii has a laser disc cleaner system that you can buy from most game stores that can clean the laser so that it emits a strong enough light to read a dual-layer disc. This has worked for me every time in the past.

My wii will not read any of the disc


You can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. Also, some older Wii units have trouble with dual layer discs, which pack more info onto a disk (Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime use dual layer discs). If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit for that too.

If after cleaning its lens your Wii still can't read any disks then you'll want to contact Nintendo.

Nintendo wii message reads: error occured remove disc turn off console check operations manual for information! on 2 new games


Hi,

Some older Wii units also have trouble with Dual Layer Discs, which pack more info onto a disk like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime. If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. the other resolution for this is to change the laser on the system but it will cost you for that. Try to clean the lens first it might read the new disk.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi,

If the Wii is having trouble with a disk, it means there's either a problem with the disk or the Wii.Since that your Wii is having a problem reading al disk there's might be a problem with it. Some older Wii units also have trouble with dual layer discs, which pack more info onto a disk .If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. If still having an issue better call Nintendo for further Support. You might have a Bad lens on your Wii.

I bought super smash bros brawl before and it worked fine then after awhile it stoped working keeps saying it cant read the disk anymore


Hello,

New game or used game?


1.) New Game - its your system. Super Smash Bros is a dual layer game and it takes a strong laser to be able to read the game. You would need to get your laser replaced.

2.) Used game - possibly worn out. Check the back for scratches.

My wii does not read any game disc


One of the major problems with the Wii not reading discs is related to Dual Layer Discs. Mario Kart Wii and Super Smash Brothers Brawl are both dual layer, and are often not readable because of a dirty lens inside of your wii's disc drive. If you have had your Wii for less than a year, it is definitely covered by your warranty, and you should call Nintendo and set up a cleaning.

If you are not within your warranty, I'd call Nintendo anyways to see what they have to say. If they won't do it for you without charging, you could also look into a wii lens cleaning kit online. Make sure you get a good quality one with good customer reviews.

Wii game disc error


Your problem is that your wii doesn't support dual layered disks (like Brawl) Call 1-800-255-3700 for their tech support and tell them about your situation. It should be completely free (shipping and everything) If you are told different, call repeatedly until you find someone who will set you right
