Anything can happen to Wii discs and its a bummer when they get scratched/broken. However there is a soloution: You can play backups of your games.
Legal notice: Playing backups of games that you do not own is illegal ;), and its illegal even if you own the game in some areas.
Here is what you are going to need to do:
Step 1: Install the Homebrew Channel if you have not already done so. (If you don’t know how you can find out here.
Step 2: Download the this file. It contains everything nescesary. After you have downloaded it extract it and put both the CIOS and Backup Launcer directories into the Apps folder of your SD card.
Step 3: Boot up the Wii and go to the Homebrew Channel. From the Hombebrew channel run the CIOS installer. (Note: You must be connected to the internet for this to work elsewise you must download and place this file in the root of your SD card.)
Step 4: Reset your Wii and run the backup launcher from the Homebrew Channel.
Congratulation you can now load backups. Hooray!
