    unable to read disk error

    I am getting the unable to read disk error when i play iso dvd's. I have created 8 iso dvd's Using dvd-r fuji disks and they all worked fine. Turned on the wii for the first time in a few months to play a new iso game. It didn't work so i tested with all of the other games that used to work and now they all don't work either.

    I have the d2pro mod chip.

    The reason, (if Admiral doesn't mind me saying), is because it is harder for a laser to read a burned game than an original. People have been tweeking lasers on PS2s for years successfully to get them to read backups. Although, I wouldn't tweek one on a Wii unless you know what you are doing.

    Are you in a home with someone who smokes? You should see some of the lasers I get to clean. Foggier than heck! Dust can also build on the laser causing issues.

    Clean your laser first, and if it still doesn't work, post back and we'll try to help some more. If you are uncomfortable taking apart your console, either find someone who knows electronics or send it to ModderMan, Spyman, or myself.
