    Getting message: "cannot read disc", Have done everything recommended both in the troubleshooting section of manual and in the troubleshooting page of Nintendo in the Web, and nothing happened...



    The worst part is that it is Thursday Dec 25 and this was my present for my three (3) granchildren!!! No stores to purchase another one today!!!

    I also just bought a Nintendo Wii for my Kids' Christmas and it will not read the Wii sports pack that is included with the game. All other games that I bought for it work just fine but the sports pack will not work. Is this the one that isn't working for you also? I have heard that other people have trouble with this game. Is there a solution? It's a brand new game so what can I do now?

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.

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.

I have the same problem i try two diferent disc y nothing happen. same error . i dont think is my wii console.


Hi,

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. I like to 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, which pack more info onto a disk (Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime use dual layer discs). If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. If all fails and still you Wii cant read any disk it only means that the Wii is malfunctioning.


Thanks for Reading. Thanks for using Fixya.

Wii console won't read any disks


A very common reason for unreadable disks is that the drive's lens is dirty or that the disk itself is dirty/scratched.

You need to regularly clean your lens. Two easy ways are to use a cd cleaner (it is a cd with brushes on it) or a can of compressed air to blow the dust off the lens. Both options are very cheap and effective.

Hope this helps and saves you some frustration.

I put a disk into my Wii and it comes up with a question mark and says the disk is unreadable. It does the same for any disk that I put into it. I have done all the recommendations in the manual including...


Hi,
it appears that your laser unit is faulty. And not reading the games. Try a music CD or other type of supported media ( Disk )
if it reads nothing at all. Suspected laser read Failure.
