Hey guys, this is my first post on this forum so be nice. I personally actually do not have a Wii, but I am posting on behalf of my younger female cousin, who luckily just got a Wii for her birthday. She got a brand new Wii from Target, and we unboxed it, connected it to Wifi, set up on the home wireless network (it prompted us for console update- we accepted), and began creating Mii's. After all that, we decided to play the included Wii Sports. No matter what we did, the OOPS! disk error continued to come. We were baffled and went back to Target, and returned the Wii, thinking the disk or the hardware was defective.
We got a new Wii from Target after returning the old one, and did the same thing. Set up the Wii, connected to wifi, installed console update, display settings, turned on 'burn in reduction' and created Miis again. New Wii..same disk error!
After hours of being upset and dissapointed, trying to unplug the console and plug it back in, I somehow thought to disconnect the WiFi and see what happened. Voila- after disconnecting from WiFi- it was able to read my disks!
Can anybody give any insight whatsoever onto this topic? My younger cousin does not need the WiFi- but her father is a network adminstrator and you can imagine his dismay when this odd error occured. We would like to have the Wii connected to the internet and be able to play legally bought games.
