So I've had my wii since the summer. The week I got it, I had a wiikey put in. My system is currently running the 3.1U firmware, with the 1.9g beta hotfix wiikey firmware. I ran backup games using SONY DVD-R and have never had problems at the start. Over the last few weeks, I started to have some problems with my games. Alot of them would not load at all, or some would load for about 5 seconds, until this message came: "The Game Disc could not be read. Please read the Wii Operations Manual for more information." Ive tested the wii using my original discs, and I have the same problem. I have also tried switching to TDK DVD-R and get the same problem. None of my games work now. Sometimes if I reinsert the disc about 5 different times, it will eventually work. Can anyone offer me some advice. I find it weird that my backups that used to work flawlessly do not work anymore at all. I am going to try to switch my wiikey firmware back, but it looks to be a hardware issue :x Although I am far from an expert on this subject so can someone PLEASE help me.
