If you are having problems with your Brawl disk working. You may want to check out what 1UP Editor-in-chief James Mielk has to to say, before you freak out to much.

“I kept getting disc read errors, with different SSBB discs, but I found that if I put it in and let the Wii do all its scanning, before I started spamming ‘A’ to get to the game started, it usually started up. Basically, put the disc in, you can hear it making disc-reading sounds. Wait until they settle down, press A on the SSBB icon on the Wii menu, repeat the waiting process til the disc stops making reading sounds, then start the game with the Wiimote. I found that helped a lot.”
