You can try cleaning your wii console. Take it apart (this will void your warranty howerver) and take some q-tips, rubbing alcahol, and an air compressor or can of compressed air. Dampen the q-tips with alcahol and GENTLY wipe off the laser lens. Next take your compressed air and blow the dust off EVERYTHING. If you don't want to void your warranty you can take a can of compressed (with the small plastic tube connected) and gently insert the stem into the CD drive, don't insert it too far, just a little bit and blow it out and hope you knocked the dust off the lens. If you can play other games you can take some toothpaste (yes, toothpaste) and rub some over the clear side of your disc (the part the laser reads) and then with a soft, lent free cloth or soft toilet paper, rub the toothpaste off in circular motion. Then lighty dampen you cloth or toilet paper and rub the rest of the toothpaste off starting from the center of the disc and wiping straight out to the edge.

I have personally done this on several CD games and Audio CD's and it's always worked for me. Hope this helps!

Use a disc cleaner to clean your laser, if this fails to fix it you will need to get the dvd drive repaired or replaced

SOURCE: Wii Problems

I called Nintendo. Our Wii was unable to be fixed by troubleshooting by phone. I'm having to send it back to them to repair or replace. They really were helpful and facilitated everything for me. My Wii was bought in 2006 and had no more warranty on it, however, they charged me $75 + $7.50 in shipping to send it back to them. If it can be repaired, they'll send it back to me fixed, however, if not, they'll send me a new one at no extra charge.

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.

SOURCE: Every time a game is put in the Wii says 'unable

You could try a 3rd party slot cleaner, or use the tried-and-true retro Nintendo console method of blowing into it.

How scratched is the disk? If it's really beat up, that might be the problem right there.

I had a similar problem before, and neither of my methods worked. I had to get it fixed by Nintendo themselves. Hopefully you don't have the worst-case scenario!

Unable read disc


Your disc probably has a few scratches, which is making it hard for the Wii to read the disc. If that's not it, then it might be that the game is WAAAAY to out of date, but I don't think that's the case here.

Super smashbros disc does not work.


Ok,
as you may or may not be aware ssbb is a HUGE game.
So if your wii has ANY dust inside the disc reader at all then you cannot read the game.
Simply send off to nintendo for a free cleaning, and it should be fine.
Hope this helped!
