    Not sure if you've resolved your problem, but from the looks of it, you're not the only one with this issue. I also get disc read errors quite often when trying Wii sports. At first I also got the errors with Zelda too. The cinematics in Zelda are really whacked when the disk isn't reading properly.

    I've seen numerous suggestions. Some folks suggest calling Nintendo support, I've tried this, but they always say to call back later. Other folks have suggested moving it away from magnetic sources. In my case, my Wii was sitting next to a speaker. Lets hope that moving it actually fixed the problem. Wii sports was picked up the first time, which is a rarity for me.

    its very unlikely you will get a defective wii i know like 10 people in rl who have one and they all work perfectly fine if you get a defective wii or defective software nintendo will gladly replace it for free with a simple phone call. Nintendo has awsome customer service when i had to get my ds replaced they sent me a brand new one in a couple days and when i got it i just transfered my settings to the new one and mailed it to them its like $5 shipping i think other then that its all free

    Please PM me before adding me!

    That's funny! I'm having the SAME EXACT problem with my Wii Sports disk, but my Twilight Princess disk works perfectly every time. I'm so glad that it's not just MY Wii Sports disk. I was beginning to think I'm crazier then I was before.

    Hey if you keep trying, it will eventually work. If I put it in so that the Title "Wii Sports" is at the top of the disk, it usually works for me. (yeah I know it's all in my head but it still usually works)
    I have the exact same situation...sometimes Wii Sports will work first time...sometimes it takes up to 6-7 tries before it takes...but every other game loads just fine. I wonder if Nintendo Support can resend out a non defective disk if I call

If anything, the 360 launch was a debauchery with the 3 red rings of death and overheating/freezing consoles. So anyone in England worried about gettinbg a defective Wii should really not worry at all.
    Very true, not many people are gonna take time away from playing their perfectly fine Wii to let everyone know that it works, same thing happened with the Xbox 360 forums when I got mine, everyone was posting problems but it was a very small percent that were actually messed up, but you only hear from the ones with problems, for the most part that is.

    Mine has the issue also.. Disc not recognized. I looked very closely at it and there are 2 small scratches on the disc. The disc spends 99% of its time in the Wii and the other 1% has been in the cardboard jacket so I can only assume it somehow got scratched when removing it from the cardboard jacket.

    How do I go about getting another disc? I guess I'll just email nintendo

    You can either email or call Nintendo (see http://support.nintendo.com/ or call 1-800-255-3700). I just got off the phone with them. We did a little trouble shooting with my Wii to make sure that wasn't the problem (thankfully), and in the end concluded that it may be a bad Wii Sports disc. They're UPSing me another one in a few days here. Total time of the call was about 20 minutes from dial tone to hangup.

    The guy on the phone was quite helpful. We moved the Wii a bit. Put in multiple discs over and over. Rotated the Wii. Repeated the disc thing. Magically it worked quite well during the tests, but they're still sending me a replacement disk.

    I mentioned the whole moving the Wii away from the speakers and the rep said that they didn't have anything in particular on that issue in their troubleshooting guide, but had heard the same thing. If the speakers were the problem, they would have had ramifications on other parts of the system, which I did not see.

    Anyway, maybe it was dumb luck that moving my system away from the speakers helped. Maybe it actually did something. In either case, the new Wii Sports is a troubleshooting method. If the disc works, we know the problem is most likely on the original disc and not with my Wii.
