I need your help again Bulbagarden, specifically the experts at Wii consoles

Rate this Entry
Those who have read my last blog, would know I said I got a Skysward Sword that wasn't working. Well I went to EBgames and they said it wouldn't work without a Motionplus with my Wii remote, so I got myself a new Wii remote with the Motion already in it.

And after a lot of tweaking making the new (Black) controller with MotionPlus Player 1 and permanently connected to my Wii, which he says wouldn't work because the lack of Motion. However the disc still reads "Unable to Read disc. Check the Wii Operations Manual for help Troubleshooting"

....Except I don't think I have the manual, or it's lost. The thing is I don't know what to do now. Without my receipt I can't get it exchanged for another, so I may have to spent 99$ this time on a new one (NOT TAKING CHANCES!). Is there any chance or do you think this disc is ruined itself, and it has nothing to do with getting the Motionplus Wii Remote, because the person who once owned it ruined it and sold it anyways (It doesn't even look badly scratched, I have discs worse for wear and still working).

Edit: Okay I am looking at the back of the case, and it mentions about a Wii Menu update. Well okay, here's something: When I first placed it in, it gave me the message from above (But I think I put it the wrong way), then trying the other side an popup came up asking for a Wii Update...

I have a feeling this could be it. I waited for the loading bar and it got to the really close end, however I thought it was stuck because I waited like 10-15mins for it to finish loading, but it didn't. So I turned the Wii off. And when I turned it back on the update didn't come back (So I don't think it finished, although I am pretty sure I got 2 new channels I didn't have before).

So...What do I do in this situation? Is there anyway to get the update again or did I just royally screw myself over. Please someone answer, I really need help and if I don't, I might just keep screwing things up more.

Edit 2: So it seems I need the internet connection to get it back up again, the update (I don't know how it did it the first time without the internet), and it's impossible here. :( over 90$ wasted on a game I cannot play on a Wiimotion that is pointless now. I just want to go and cry.

    The game telling "Disc could not be read" implies issues on something else. You need the MotionPlus to play it, but it should point it out to you in the title screen or something.

    If you have other games, try if those work properly, especially Brawl. If all other games work properly, the game is at fault, and you should go complain about it to get a refund or a new disc or whatever.

    Yes, I tried Brawl and it works, so it's just Skyward sword, do you think it has to do with the update? Because like I said in my 1st/2nd edit it kind of got screwed up and it didn't finish... I think anyways. It was like at 99% before finishing but never ended.

    I think you can look for system updates in the Wii's settings, and you should be patient with the updates, even if it means leaving it alone for a while. It shouldn't take too long, but if it's the same (99%) after, like, half a day (even a few hours is excessive, but...), then you should check for other factors. System space might be an issue, but I doubt it.

    As for Skyward Sword itself...it just seems to be an issue with the disk, unless your Wii's crapping out on you. It's a stretch but maybe the SS disk is set for a different country and your Wii's refusing to read it because of the region lock?

    I don't know, otherwise.

    Perhaps it is, but it does have the same sort of background as my others like Brawl as on the back on the case, and both say something about Australia and Pal version or something (Only SS has a message talking about the Wii update is needed, that's why I think it's one of the reasons)

    @Mitsuru; Question, what version is this update? Because when I go to Wii Settings to try and check the internet connection (None of it works, which doesn't explain why the update happened before, before I turned it off for being impatient.. I was kinda). It says Version 4.3E?

    I googled it....but um the only thing I am seeing is about.. how to hack it? I am confused, what is this?

    Also if the update never finished, then how did three new Channels I never had before appear on my menu? Today and Tomorrow Channel, Mii Contest Channel and Everybody Votes Channel.. Did they come with the update? But that must mean the update finished it just never got off the loading screen? (I have seen that happen before)...

    And if that's a chance.. I am still out of 80$ and may have to spend 909$ ()NO PREOWNED on a chance the disc was the problem)).

    The reason I ask, since it's preowned what if the idiot before did something to it? Like well I don't know. I know the back of the Skyward Sword says it needs the latest version of Menu Update, but which one is that?
