Yeah we tried cleaning them with Windex.

Thanks for all the suggestions. But I think I'm going to have to have them buffed.

I don't know if this will work for Wii games, but I know when I'm having trouble with DVDs, Netflix recommends spraying them with Windex.

Try washing them under water no soap. Dry with a soft cloth. If any fingerprints or sticky stuff is on them it should come off.

There's a Wii disc cleaning kit. I think it costs about $10. Give it a try.

No, they're not written on. I'll have to hold them up to the light and try that. Thanks for the suggestions.

try the buffing, as I was thinking that might help. the other thing ( to do before paying to have them buffed) would be to hold them up to the light, bottom side towards you--if you see light shining through the main part of the disks, then buffing won't help, as that means the data layer has been scratched off. also, did you write on the disks at all? the data layer is right below the label on the top side (and read through the plastic bottom side), so it can be damaged--unlikely if they're kept put away, but always possible.

I hadn't played on the Wii in a long time -- kids have. A few weeks back I decided to do step aerobics on the Wii Fit. I have both Wii Fit and Fit Plus. Neither game would work for me. I got a disc read error. I was eventually able to get them to play days later. I've had trouble off and on. Now I haven't been able to play them since Tuesday. They will come up at various points in the game, but will eventually quick working all with the same disc read error. Other games will play on the Wii. Has anyone else ever had this problem? My husband is thinking about taking them to a Game Exchange or Game Stop and having the discs buffed. I'm hoping this will work because I don't want to have to buy the games brand new.
