Hi there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the DISK DRIVE READ ERROR

The main cause is Hardware failure due to overheating or just simple wear & tear.

You will need to perform simple maintenance to your console

You can send your Wii to Nintendo to fix this. If your in warranty its free. If not the repair cost would be $100 and a wait time of 4-6 weeks

The other solution is what I did and the way more and more gamers are turning nowadays is a Good Wii Repair Guide that shows you how to fix the problem yourself. I have never had a problem with this one so far for over a year, well worth it. Its my most recommended guide online.

Well this is all the help and advice I have on this so good luck.

You can get back to gaming

Please come back and rate my post if you find it useful

Many thanks

Chris Foley

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.

Wii will not read discs


The first step is to check the disc. If you are sure this is not a problem with the game disc, then this is usually a problem with either the laser inside of the Wii's drive, or some other issue going on inside of the DVD drive. The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well. If you have tried cleaning the system already, there's probably a problem with the DVD reader:

Disc read issue


If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix The problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide

Cannot read disc


Greetings,
I had the same problem with my Wii. Unfortunatly nothing worked to fix the problem so I called Nintendo's customer services. They were able to replace the unit free of charge. I would simply give them a call: 1-800-255-3700 and press 2.
Good Luck,
-WN
