    Unhappy Hello, I'm new and I've got wii disc reading problems

    Hi, I've been lurking on this site for a while and using its tutorials... I haven't had a need to post yet, but now I do, lol.

    My Wii will read retail burned single layered and burned single layered backup game discs, but it struggles when I try to play my retail copy of SSBB. If I clean the disc really well, spray some compressed air in the disc slot and/or clean the laser with a cleaning kit, the disc will read about 1/3 of the time. This is an annoyance, but not one of my main problems...

    My main problem is that my Wii has stopped reading DVD-movies on WiiMC. I know it has the right DVD Drive because my Wii is a launch Wii and I watched the (new) Nightmare on Elm Street DVD on it (from Redbox version, not sure if that matters) about 8 months ago. Now it won't read Requiem for a Dream (GF picked the movie for last night), or any other DVD I stick in it...

    Also, it won't read a burned copy of SSBB that I burned on a Dual Layered DVD (I don't like using originals unless necessary). Do I need a POT Tweak, a new laser or what? BTW I followed the instructions in this thread, burned the disc right, and installed everything that should be necessary, and I have a triwing screwdriver, so I can open my Wii up.

    So uh... yeah... Hi, lol xD

    Please be aware that newer Wii's Do not play back up disc from the disc drive. Your only option will be to load from the Usb port.Usb Loading is recommeded as you will not have any lag and if your lazy like me,you won't have to get up to change the Disc.

    Before you go out and spend money on a HDD for your Wii,make sure that it is on the Compatibility list.This will save you time and money.
