Wii won't read Mario Kart disk

I just got a Wii on Wednesday. Reads 2 other game disks fine. Had one Mario Kart, didn't read. Returned that and got a second Mario Kart disk, won't read that disk either. What should I do? Is it the game or is it the console?

Are they used? That could be the problem. If not What if you wasted ALL of the memory. Check to see if it is full. If not ask nintendo.

It's either a region code issue or if the code is the same, then update the firmware.

Whenever I win something in Mario Kart Wii, It says " The game Disc could not be read. Refer to the Wii Operations Manual fo details." I've cleaned this disk thoroughly twice already and it...


Your Nintendo Wii can not properly read some portions of your Game Disk. The probable reasons are dirt on the lens or CD, or scratches on the CD. Try cleaning the CD using a soft cloth and clean the lens of your Wii console using a Lens Cleaner.

Have Mario Kart Double Dash Gamecube disc. Trying to play on my Wii. It says, "the disc cannot be read, refer the instruction booklet". Don't have one. Any ideas?


There have been a couple of flaws in how the Wii reads Gamecube games, so this could be for a couple of reasons.
1. Some games simply just cant be read on the Wii, but it is completely determined by the game...not the Wii. This is a flaw found in mostly Gamecube games and sometimes Wii games. I have heard of Super Smash Brothers Brawl not working on certain Wii's. In your case, with Mario Kart Double Dash, it could just be that the game simply cannot be read. If this is true, then there is nothing that can be done. (You can test this by putting the game in somebody else's Wii)
2. A more common problem is scratches or fingerprints. If this is the case, then get scratch removal at the store. If you don't want to, then toothpaste will sometimes work.
3. If all else fails...read the instructions booklet.

My Mario Kart game will not load and keeps saying go to wii operations manual.


This is simple the disk is unreadable.........

A solution that works for scratched disks is:

Using cigarette ashes finely ground up put them on the disk.....
After rubbing them in gently lightly blow off remainder of ashes......
If it still don't work you can have the disk resurfaced.......

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.

Disk won't work


Did you put it in correctly? If the Wii is facing vertically, the side with print on it goes AWAY from the buttons. Anytime you put in a Wii disk in, the print side must go away from the buttons. Hope this helps :)

If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is totry 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.
