Disc unrecognized , Save game didn't save, No pause menu ...
I got my system and played it normally without any updating or connecting to the net. Here's how mine has gone...
Disc Unrecognized Error
I played Wii sports. Played Great.
I then went to Monkey Ball. Played Great.
Started playing Zelda. Played Great.
Then I went back to Wii Sports and it won't work.
Ever since the first time I played Wii Sports, I get the ridiculous error "Game disc unrecognized. Refer to operations manual for troubleshooting."
I have tried numerous times before and after my other games which run normally, but NO WII SPORTS.
I have checked the disc for scratches and cleaned it a couple times. The disc is absolutely inserted in the correct way.(just like my other games)
And I still get this damn unrecognized disc error.
There are no scratches on the game, Its brand freakin new, and it wont work.
Im a bit pissed. I only played three holes of golf and now I can't play the game at all. It doesn't even make sense. Did the Wii fry the game. I don't get that.
Zelda not saving game data, fear that others won't save also
my other problem is that Zelda game saves didn't save my most recent progress. Not only did I manually hit the Plus button, point at "save" and then confirm to save my progress,
but I also saved the game after going through an automated sequence and list of tasks in game, where the game asked me to save.
After I played Zelda for a few hours, saved game two different ways, I hit the home button.
It allows you to either "reset the system completely", or "return to Wii menu."
If you hit "return to Wii menu", it says that any unsaved data will be lost.
BUT, I saved my game twice as I stated.
When I returned to my Zelda game, the log file for continuing a game, did not reflect the most recent save points and I had to do the entire initial wolf mode over again.
This time I saved my game under all three different save slots, so I could verify what the hell is happening. Anyone else seen this kind of thing.....
This takes me to my other problem
No Start button - No Pause
If there were some sort of standard pause button or start menu like many other games, you would be able to pause game, quit the game to the main menu instead of quitting the game to the Wii menu.
Does anyone else see a problem with having no damn "start" or "pause" button or menu of any sort.
The only "start-esque" menu, is the "home" button , which can either reset the system entirely, or take you back to the Wii main menu which, either case you lose all progress if you have not yet saved.
But apparently, even when you save, you lose your data.
I have a major problem with not being able to pause my game, and quit to the "game main menu" as opposed to the "operating system menu".
Seems like a major design flaw and I haven't read anything else from anyone about the issues Ive had....
PS. Wii Remote syncing can also be a pain in the ass.
PSS. Love the controller in general. Zelda really feels great after a couple hours.
