My wii wont load any games

I put the game inside the Wii(its Super Smash Bros. Brawl) and it goes in and it always says unable to read disk.

I bought the Wii used but it never has these problems before.

P.s it also won't read Gamecube or wii games at all.

We had similar problems after buying Super Smash Bros Brawl. I noticed that the Wii could read which disc was in the system but could not load it in order to play. This seemed like a shortage of memory to me (but the error message does not indicate a memory issue). I bought a 1 gig sd memory card for the Wii and now it works perfectly. BTW the kid at the Best Buy store did not think this would work, but it did. Good Luck.

It may apear that your disk it ok, but it is indeed damaged. Trust me even when you cant see it, a game can be badly scratched

It sounds to me that the solder joints are bad. If you are good at soldering I would take the controller apart and look at where the joystick is and on the back side apply the soldering iron and allow the solder to adheir to the joystick post. This should fix your problem. Please rate this as a FIXYA if this corrects your problem.

make sure that your wii is fully updated by connecting to the internet and doing a check for updates, some games need updates.

try removing all memory cards before starting a game, some games dont like the cards at first.

My wii will not read any of my games

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.

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


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.
