Hello all fellow Wii gamers. I have owned a Wii for several years now, and have gotten some good hard gaming from it. One day it all of a sudden displayed the "Cannot read disc" error message. The disc was clean, but i cleaned it anyway. I put the game back in and the wii started humming and the message kept popping back up. I tried ALL the games in my inventory and they all came up with the same message. I looked up all kinds of solutions, and none have worked. I don't know if its bricked or if it's just being stubborn.
The term "bricked" is used to describe a Wii that's been "modified" poorly, causing possibly irreversible damage to the hardware as a result. If you haven't been playin' around with hacking and such, no, your Wii isn't bricked.
... But in that case, there's obviously something wrong with the disc drive.
