I go to the Wii menu to play Super Smash Bros Brawl, and when I press Play Game, the screen goes dark and the game wouldn't load. Same problem with Metroid Prime Trilogy. At first I thought something was wrong with the disk player, so I went back to the Wii U menu to play Pikmin 3. It worked perfectly fine. Any suggestions?

Dumb question, but you didn't put the disc in backwards, did you? Just had to ask.

Did you try other games, or just those 2? Has your Wii U played Wii games before, or was this your first time trying it?

If I'm not mistaken, those 2 games are dual layer dvd games. I heard some wii's had issues playing dual layered dvd games. Some people with the wii u also have had this issue. Call nintendo.

I have played these two games on my wii u before, this started happening yesterday. Also, they're not put in backwards, i checked to make sure.

The drive in the Wii U is different than the Wii, so sometimes reading Dual Layered discs is a pain for it to do. Which both of those games are. Call em up and see what they can do about it.

If you were to ask me what kind of person I was, I'd tell you I listen to dubstep, country, rap and thrash metal. I think that makes me a pretty level person.

I don't think it's all dual-layered discs, is it?

My Wii U played Metroid: Other M just fine.

make sure your discs are clean, sometimes handprints magically appear on em (seriously i swear its magical cause i dont even touch the thing and crud gets on it mysteriously)
