What's your problem?the wiw has trouble reading the disk


Your WII is having trouble reading disks? Try using a dvd/cd ROM cleaner disk. Run the cleaning disk in the WII a couple of times and try inserting your game again. If it still does not read the disk, try cleaning the game disk itself with a lint free cloth and alcohol. make sure to dry the disk completely and never wipe in a circle. If this does not solve the issue, try playing the disk in another WII to figure out if the problem is isolated to the disk itself. If the disk plays in another WII, then contact the manufacturer and send the console in for repair.

When disk is installed the Wii Menu comes up but the disk is spinning and does not show the name of the disk in console.


What kind of disk is it? If it's a game then the disk might be damaged, meaning you'd have to get a new one.

It could also mean the disk drive in your Wii is broken. If other game disks work it should be fine, though.

If it's a DVD or a music CD, it's the same story - the disk must be damaged, or it's possible it's a format the Wii can't read, in which case there's nothing you can do.

If it's a disk you burned yourself, your Wii probably refuses to read it. Nintendo has restrictions on what kind of disks the Wii will read to prevent piracy.

After inseerting the game, click the start we are told that the disk can't be read and to refer to the operators manual....why all of a sudden wont the game work?


The game could be scratched and there are numerous resources for how to fix the disk. You can try the one below.

You can also pay someone to fix it.

If it is only that disk that won't read, the problem is likely a scratch or some debris on the surface. If all your disks won't read, then you may need to have the Wii repaired as it could be a problem with the laser reader.

My wii says its unable to read disk on all games including new ones what can i do


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.

My wii fit plus disc reads cant be read when inserted in to the wii help please can it be fixed


Hi lyned1,

If the Wii is having trouble with a disk, it means there's either a problem with the disk or the Wii. If your Wii can't read any disks then you'll want to contact Nintendo. Otherwise you need to investigate your disk.

If you hold the bottom side of the disk to the light you should be able to see if there's a smudge or scratch. If it's a smudge, cleaning the disk will often fix the problem. Use the microfiber cloths used to clean eyeglasses or, short of that, a tissue. Just rub the smudged spot. (When using a tissue I generally steam up the spot with my breath first.) If the disk looks good, put it back into the Wii and see what happens.

A scratch is more problematic. If it's a game you just bought, try exchanging it where you bought it. Otherwise you can try polishing out the scratch.

Some older Wii units also have trouble with dual layer discs, If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. And also you can try to use a different disk to check if your system will be able to read it. then try the Wii Fit Plus If after all that, your Wii still can't read the disc, it's probably just a bad disc.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wii wont read disk


mchlstull

In regards to your Wii not reading disks most likely your laser is dirty or you are having trouble with your drive its self.

They make a laser cleaning kit for the Wii you may try using to clean the laser. Note DO NOT USE a DVD/CD cleaner disk on the Wii. Only use ones that are made for game systems. Alot of times the lense for the laser is made different for game systems and if you use a standard one it can scratch the lense.

If this does not work then I would see if you are still in warranty. If you do then contact Wii support about getting an RMA.

If not you will need to look into replacing the drive. (There are several walk throughs on the Internet.) If you do not think you can do it your self then you may be able to find a local repair shop that can do it for you.

Hope this helps

The disk cant be read


try the disk on a different wii and load the saved file on memory card and try it from there.if the game works fine with another account then the account that your trying to load is corrupted.if the game does read on a different system then it is your wii.(doubt it but is possible)if the game doesn't work with a new account then it is the cd.

New wii user. menu says it can't read the disk.


It's sometimes confusing which side is "up" for the Wii. Did you try flipping the game disc and re-inserting? Maybe that will help.
