    I'm having the worst luck with my Wii ever. It is bull crap.

    The first wii had the error code 112blahblahblah. I couldn't connect online and they had to send me a new one.

    I get the new wii today and I was all excited. The wii was able to connect online, but the cd won't load! When i pop in the cd it was making a weird clicking noise then this message appears:

    "Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read"

    Now i have to use my first wii to play games and my 2nd wii to go online till they send me a new one.

    And you would think they'd test the console out before sending it out huh?

    Do you think the 2nd one is just defective and the 1st one you've just put the internet details in wrong?

    That could be a possibility

    pretty sure the first one is defective. I called in, gave them the error code and immediately they told me to send it back.

    My 1st wii actually connects online....till the update. After the update it won't connect and I keep getting an error message. I asked the lady on the phone, and it's happening to a lot of wiis that was bought from the 1st batch.

    Mine was one of 1st batch ones.

    so many people get problems trying to update...

    i had mine freeze a few times trying, not even an error code, just froze (i actually left it for over an hour to see if anything happened, finished my dinner and it was still frozen)

    not the wii's fault, just the servers pumping out the updates not doing so well..

    as for the not able to read disc error, unlucky

    called them this morning.

    They're sending me a new one overnight.

    They said its probably due to UPS not correctly handling the box correctly.

    I must say, nintendo do have good customer service.

    Well there are ALOT of Wii's trying to Update at once when a new Channel comes out. And there's people trying to update everyday. Probably the internet connection

    exactly, thats what i meant, the servers get overloaded when so many people try to get the same thing at around the same time.

    i heard alot of people had update problems at the same time as me, which further supports the idea...

    hope my wii doesn't comeback like that. I've been having graphical glitches/overheating and sent my Wii back yesterday. How long did it take for them to repair? I'm expecting to be Wi-less for 2 weeks :(

    yes the disc is in the right way

    My first wii plays all the games, just not the second one.

    By tomorrow i will have 3 Wiis, 2 i need to send back and hopefully nothing is wrong with the 3rd one.

    I don't know what the problem is, I think you said exactly what the problem was in one of your posts, so you are plugging your Wii into a UPS? I don't see how that could cause problems, but it seems like that could be the only problem

    I'm not saying that anybody is doing anything bad to their consoles, after all, if you get something and it dosen't work out of the box, that would be a defect, and you can't help that (SONY products have the most defects in my household), but for every console i've ever owned, I have never had a problem out of the box, and the only console I have ever had a problem with was the XBOX 360, the XBOX 360 lasted for about 3 or 4 months (I think), and now it freezes like crasy, the graphics are messed up, but I think that was caused by something my brother did, anyway, hope it's 3rd times the charm
