    There's no workaround for it right now besides opening the console up and replacing the mainboard. You'll have to load from usb, which ain't so bad.

    currently, new wiis cant play dvd-r cos of the new dvd chip.

    SOLUTION:
    Dont waste DVD's. Save the earth. GO USB! lol

    Hi Ithian,

    Are you saying that the new wiis (mine is new this Christmas and on 4.2U system menu) can't play burnt DVD'S. That would explain why I am having disk read errors while trying to launch a burnt game.

    Thanks for you help,

    From what everyone seems to know, it's not necessarily all of them but yes, odds are good yours has the chip if it's brand new and you continually get read errors.
