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.

There is something wrong with your laser. You should be covered under warranty, send it in for exchange or repair. Here is the Nintendo Repair Center Help Line: 1-800-255-3700

Hi there blhr36

What to do when your Wii Has problems with reading disks and you have tried cleaning the disk.

This does not mean your Disk Drive needs replacing more often than not it just needs the laser to be readjusted.

Option 1

You can send this off to Nintendo if your still in warranty because it is included in there free fixes so they will do the collecting for you, fix it and return the Wii to you, all for free, but it will take 4-6 weeks.

Option 2

If you are out of warranty its the same process as above but its $150 in cost

Option 3

now a new Disk drive would cost around $75 for a compatible one and you may need some one to fit it at a cost as well.

Option 4

What I recommend is a Wii Repair Guide that will show you the simple steps yourself, you will be up and running again in less than an hour and the cost is far less than option 2 & 3

Good Luck

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.

Error message- game disk could not be read (all games)


First check to make sure that you don't have multiple discs in the Wii. If that's not it than your Wii is defective and could possibly have a bad drive.

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.

Dropped console and now will not read disk. It still turns on but will not read disk. My kid is devastaded!


The disk is scratched. If the whole Wii won't read anything, then the Wii CD reader is broken.
