A: Sometimes, cleaning the disc doesn't work. If that's the case then try updating your Wii. I've found that updating actually fixes the read error problem as some discs won't work unless you have an update installed. This is specially true for Super Mario

Disc Read Error - Any chance of fixing it myself?
Any chance it might just be the laser or something, instead of the entire drive? i really have no idea how to go about troubleshooting it. It seems to be moving the laser around a fair amount trying to read the tracks, but then isn't able to. Anyway, sounds like getting it repaired might be the safest option. thanks a bunch for your replies. You can buy so-called DVD optical cleaners (often appearing as a disc) but be aware: they're abrasive and often not in the best interests of your Wii's laser assembly with regard to long term. You don't want to send it in to Nintendo, as likely it'll come back as a D3-2 drive (if your drive isn't already) which means it'll be inoperable for backup purposes. I did buy a second-hand optical drive off Flea Bay, that's always an option --- you'll need a tri-wing screwdriver (also sourced off Flea Bay). @nightstah - thanks, already tried the optical cleaner, and no dice. I just bought a couple of the triwing screwdrivers (really cheap). I'm hoping
