Single Disc
The following steps are for problems with a single Game Disc or if you only own one game. If more than one game is experiencing problems, please link here.


Note: It is possible that the problem you have may be game play related. For example, if you cannot defeat a particular enemy, or are missing an item you need to complete an area, the problem is likely game play related and there is nothing wrong with your Game Disc. Please check our game play help for assistance.

  1. Ensure the disc is free of dust and contamination by cleaning it. Clean the disc with a soft, slightly damp cotton cloth (use water only). Clean the disc from center towards the edges; do not use a circular motion. DO NOT use paper.
  2. Dry the disc, using a dry portion of the cloth and wiping in the same style as you did in step 1. After all of the water is gone, let the disc sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting it into the Nintendo GameCube.
  3. Check for Unlicensed products. Make sure that you're using only licensed products with your Nintendo system. Unlicensed products are not tested for compatibilty and may not work correctly with all games. Try playing the game without the unlicensed accessory.
  4. Check for specific game issues. Some games may have known issues or game play elements that appear as problems.
  5. Ensure the game is being loaded properly. With the power turned off on the system, replace the Game Disc (label side up) in the system, press down gently on the Game Disc until it locks on the center hub. Close the Disc Cover and press the power button ON to see if the game comes on the screen.
  6. Look for obvious physical damage to the disc. Remove the Game Disc and check the non-labeled side for cracks, scratches, smudges, or dirt. The Nintendo GameCube has extensive error correction capabilities and minor scratches or contamination should not cause issues in most cases. However, it is important to determine if disc damage is causing the problem.
    • If the disc is cracked
      Review our disc replacement policy to determine how to get your game replaced.
    • If it's dirty, scratched, or shows no obvious damage
      1. You may try cleaning the disc again with a soft, slightly damp cotton cloth (use water only). Clean the disc from center towards the edges; do not use a circular motion. DO NOT use paper.
      2. Make sure the game is dry, then re-insert it and see if the error occurs again.
      3. If the game had been working normally, shows signs of physical damage, and now displays errors or lockups in areas it previously didn't, the problem is likely to be the damage to the disc. Use the disc replacement policy to determine how to get your game replaced.
      4. If the game never worked or you are discovering errors in areas you have entered for the first time, it is possible that the problem could be with the system or the disc. (The system may still be the problem even if the disc shows some signs of damage.)

  7. If possible, try the disc in another Nintendo GameCube. If the disc works properly in another system, the problem is with your Nintendo GameCube. Please check out our system repair options. If the game still does not work in another system, it is likely a problem with the Game Disc. Please review our disc replacement policy to determine how to get your game replaced.
If you are not able to try the game in another system and the other troubleshooting steps haven't narrowed the problem down, it is impossible to determine for certain whether the problem is the Nintendo GameCube or Game Disc. Please contact Nintendo's Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700 for assistance.

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.

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.

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.

Reads the wii fit disk and when i push start it reads game disk could not be read . refer to the wii operation manual


Hi there rina hz5

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
