    anyway i got my wii chipped about a year ago the guy said it was a wiikey and ever since then its been working fine playing burnt games with no prob i havnt even updated my wiikey once and it still plays all the newest games like mario kart ssbb and galaxy

    so last week i was unlocking a bunch of stuff in mario kart then decide to get some brawl on i put in brawl and it gets a cannot read disk error eject and turn off etc so im like weird ill just reburn it and go back to mario kart then mario kart doesnt work so i reburn em both and they still dont work keep getting the same error

    my originals still work and so does a burnt copy of mario party 8 so im really confused as to whats going on

    any help or advice would be much appreciated

    P.S sorry for the long post i wanted to give as many details as i could

    ok quick questions....
    what kind of blank dvds you are using?
    what kind of software you are using?
    what speed you are burning the game at?
    what kind of burner you are using?

    Cause it looks like the wii laser is getting a little weak and it looks like the wii needs a good servicing.
    Thanks everyone for the great support.
    Hope to hear from you soon, cause i'm getting ready to retire from the modding scene.
    Gonna start a new profession.

    ok...try using a pioneer burner instead, if it still don't work, open your wii and just roll down the laser to a spot where you can access the lens and with a dry cotton swab, in a gentle circular motion, rub the cotton swab over the laser lens. DON'T USE ANY LASER CLEANING SOLUTION OR LASER CLEANING DISCS!!!!!!! it kills lasers.
    Thanks everyone for the great support.

    remember don't be drunk when cleaning your laser (lol) you can damage your wii's laser with either your barf or your twitchy hand LOL!!!!!

    One thing though.....when you open the wii, power on the wii and insert the same SSBB in the drive and check and see if the disc is spinning. If it is not spinning, that can be your problem, if it is spinning and it not reading, definitely your laser needs cleaning or very soon replacing. (this is my observation)

    The laser must be deteriorating (whether it is in use or stored) and probably needs adjusting or cleaning....also try to update the wiikey to 1.9 cause it seems the chip cannot handle the newer games so good.
