Help - Wii doesn't work!

I've just opened a brand new game (Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2) and put it in my Wii.

The disc logo just keeps spinning forever. There are no error codes. All my other games work without problems.

After doing a bit of research, I found out about the "Smash Brothers Dual Layers" problem. I highly doubt this is the case as I've just rented a copy and tried it and it works.

I've had this Wii for just over 2 years now. So out of warranty
This is an unmodded Wii - I'm not technically minded to do anything of that sort.

Has anyone had this happen to them too?
Does anyone know what to do?
Does anyone have any recommendations?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I've tried it upright, as I normally lay it flat... but still nothing happens. Maybe I can try turning it upside-down... :|

you should find out if that disc works in other Wii's or not. cause it could be the disc.
#5
Yeah, the disc is brand new, no scratches, no dust... I just opened it up this morning from the cellophane wrapper.

I don't know anybody else who has a Wii... hence trying the forum to see if anyone else has had this problem :cry:

I don't mind buying the component(s) to get it online to update... but can anyone else confirm that this is all I'd have to do to fix the problem?

You don't need to buy anything if you have a wireless router.

What version is the wii first?

At the home screen, click the bottom left logo and go into settings.

At the top right hand of the screen it will say which version it is. Either 3.x or 4.x something.

The disk would normally come with the update it needs.
#15
Mine's 3.1e
Have just updated to 4.2E

Loaded the game. It took a while, I clicked on the loading logo/button and took a bit longer. But finally went in.
Now loading without problems. Thanks all for help/suggestions. Repp'd.
