he said about amonth ago they must be cheap dvds for them to degrade so fast.
I find it hard to believe that all his disks would just quite working at the same time and be chalked up to degrading disks. I could understand the laser getting much weaker and not being able to read the burned disks anymore...as a more valid scenario. Besides that disks don't degrade that fast unless you are leaving the things sit in front of a UV light source or they just get mis-treated and scratched all up.
That doesn't make sense though.

With your theory that doesn't make any sense. It must be something else. Also, I keep them in a CD case in my basement (which isn't warm) and since I don't have a miniature sun down there, it can't be from sunlight. Sure they're stored together but not right against each other. Also, I play Excite Truck the most and it's in my Wii the most. So technically, if it's degrading because of being played too much, then the others should be working. If it's because of where I store them, then all of them except Excite Truck should be not working.
Since neither of these situations is the case, I'm pretty sure it's not a media issue. Any other ideas?
They're not cheap DVDs. They're Verbatims which are one of the longest lasting brands.

The only way I can see that theory making sense is if Wii games by the makers are made at a lower speed than the burnt games. Considering my games are burnt at 4x, I don't see that as likely. However, tomorrow I'll burn a game at 1x and see if that works.
If it does work, I know my laser is dying. If not,...
wow you just answered everyones theory and you still don't know your problem, weird...

Serious conclusion: My Wii was on for a long period of time and this caused the Wii to get tired. It probably needed to cool down for it to be able to run burnt games. That's just a theory. Now I'm just curious as to what it is that happened...
