Cant read any disk for long or at all, i've tried unplugging it, reseting, and everything inbetween. i'm a IT for Dell, so i thought i could figure it out. Is there any trick or setting to fix this problem.
thanks for your time
Re: can't read any disk for long ( all new wii games)
Unfortunately there is no solution as it is probably a bad disk drive. If it was your computer I'm sure you could replace it in under 5 minets, alas its a Wii and there is nothing to be done. I had the same problem with my first Wii and ended up just calling Nintendo. They replaced it under warranty. Try giving them a call, Nintendo Consumer Service: 1-800-255-3700 They are often helpful.

my friend,Christina, had the same problem, but didn't handle it right. SHE threw it on the ground. Don't do that. Just take it into GameStop. Then you can either get it fixed, or you can trade it in for a new Wii.
First off, make sure the disks are clean and scratch-free. Also, make sure you're inserting them with the label side up (or to the right if your wii is standing up). If all of this is fine, you may try unplugging your wii and let it sit there, unplugged, for about 5 minutes to let the console reset.
try the disk on a different wii and load the saved file on memory card and try it from there.if the game works fine with another account then the account that your trying to load is corrupted.if the game does read on a different system then it is your wii.(doubt it but is possible)if the game doesn't work with a new account then it is the cd.
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. It also gives
information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems

try cleaning the disks and make sure your inserting the disks with the wii on. you can also try resetting it there is a soft and hard way to reset it.
to soft reset your wii with the power on press and hold the reset button for 2 seconds( the second button from the top of the console)
The way to hard reset your Nintendo Wii is to UNPLUG it for 5 minutes.
if that doesn't cure your problem then i suggest taking it to a store and getting it fixed or if its still under warranty to return it to the manufacturer
