Probably a dirty laser. You'll have to use a laser cleaning disc made for Wii. If that doesn't do it then it's most likely a bad laser. Not an easy self fix for a newbie. ?warrenty? then send it in to Nintendo.(you can find out on their web site) If not, then replacing the laser yourself or finding someone who can is the best bet. Actualy kinda cheap to buy a new laser(ships from Hong Kong), There are other causes for read errors, but I've found the laser to be the culprit most of the time. Could be just dirty,.. dust & cigarrette smoke can be cleaned with the cleaning discs but , the best way is of course to open the Wii and wipe the laser with a Qtip soaked with alcohol. But a Wii is not all that easy to open up. ($7 for cleaning disc, $9 for new laser, $90 to get Nintendo to fix it.)

Games discs purchased in the USA do not work on the UK model? Message on screen "could not read Disc"


The Wii console is designed to only recognize the disc in that region.
If you insert a disc from another region, the Wii can't read it.
You live in the UK, for example. If you insert discs that aren't purchased in the UK (like the USA), the Wii can't read it.

Wii Cannot read discs


Made a video showing how I fixed this problem on my Wii. I show how to troubleshoot, take it apart, clean the laser and replace the DVD ROM if needed. Cleaning the laser didn't fix my problem but most of the time it will.
