It could mean a lot of things.

  1. The disc is scratched or dirty, so when the drive tries to read the disc it sees all the data as being corrupted. To fix this, all you should have to do is clean the disc using either a kit or find some business locally that will do it (this is usually very cheap).
  2. If it's happening with more than one disc, your drive could be bad. You might want to call Nintendo and check on your warranty status. They may be able to fix your Wii for free.

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.

Unable to read disc


Hi,

I'm sorry you're experiencing this. This means your system's laser is weak and will need to be replaced. You can open your WII system and clean the laser with a cotton swab (only a drop of rubbing alcohol) and this may help it just a little, But a replacement would be best.

Wii console will not read Wii Resort Disc?


The Wii Sports Resort disc is either dirty or scratched. A disc cleaning procedure can be found on pg. 24 of the Wii Operations Manual: System Setup. If the Wii still doesn't read the disc, the Wii itself could be damaged. Turn the power OFF and unplug the AC adapter, then contact Nintendo Customer Service. (1-800-255-3700 in the USA and Canada)

Disc read error


if you bought it from wal-mart, you might have to get it fixed because wal-mart usually throws their merchandise into their truck. I mean they THROW it and dont care.
