    apparently it happens to non-modded wiis. and it is a big enough issue that there is a section for it on the official nintendo website. and even if you call their 1800 number, theres a "press 3 if you are having issues loading SSBB" on their automated phone shit.

    Just so you know the reason,

    as far as i know, it happens because it's a dual layer disc, and not all wii's are clean enough (at least, the laser) to be able to read it. Correct me if I'm wrong

    Correct.

    I had a launch-day Wii and Brawl worked at first, but quickly started screwing up and not loading.
    Had to send my Wii in to get the laser fixed (for free).

    Not a whole lot you can do yourself, besides trying to clean the laser yourself, and sending it to nintendo if that doesn't work.
    Unless your Wii is modded, then just download the game to a hard drive and play off that, lol.

    I made it work simply by using the official cleaning kit.

    update. wii disc channel doesnt read disc and nor does USB Loader GX, but customizable usbloader does read it.... im confuzed.


    update 2. now can get the disc channel to see it but cant get brawl +'s launcher to see it.... u think itsjust cause of a dirty drive?
