Your disk may be scratched or dirty, make sure it is inserted the correct way. try inserting another wii game and see if it can read that.

You can try to clean your disk using this guide, but if its scratched then it wont help.

I have no problems turning on the Wii, but when I go to click on the game, it says unable to read the disc with a big question mark.


Hello,

The disk could be to scratched/damaged for the WII to read or the WII could be broken. Another possible issue is the WII has to much dust and needs to be cleaned(with compressed air).

I would recommend trying another disk and if it works you most likely have a bad disc. If not, I would contact Nintendo to have the WII repaired as it should still be under warranty.

Regards,

Every time a game is put in the Wii says 'unable


You could try a 3rd party slot cleaner, or use the tried-and-true retro Nintendo console method of blowing into it.

How scratched is the disk? If it's really beat up, that might be the problem right there.

I had a similar problem before, and neither of my methods worked. I had to get it fixed by Nintendo themselves. Hopefully you don't have the worst-case scenario!

Is the disk dirty or scratched? This error commonly occurs when a damaged disk is unable to be read by the system. If your other games work, then the cause is likely the disk.

The wii is giving the message "unable to read


  • This message can display if you eject a disc during game play. If this is when the message displayed, make sure that you return to the Wii Menu before changing discs if you wish to play a different game.


  • If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.

  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc.
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

Unable to load games


I have a very similar problem that my wii console gives me black screen with disk read error every time I inserted a new disc that worked previously. The way I worked around this problem is by
1. ejecting the disc
2. powering off(hold the power button for about 10 seconds)
3. unplugging the power cord
4. waiting one minute or so
5. plugging in again and re-inserting disc
This worked every time when I switched disc.
