    I'm having the same problem.
    It says:
    "The game Disc could not be read. Please refer to your Wii Operations Manual for more information"

    Use verbatim dvd-r. I had the same problem with platinum-r. Verbatim fixed the problem.

    It seems you have a case of dying laser and/or a dirty lens. You could try with some of those cleaning DVDs you can easily buy in electronics shops out there to see if it helps.

    I believe that shops like future shop and bestbuy sell these wii lens cleaning kits licensed by nintendo. Try one of those.
