It may be possible you bought a chipped Wii without knowing it. In this case, modchips have been known to cause problems when updating. Usually the drive will be able to read a disc from another region, but it will cause problems on an update. Otherwise, make sure your disc isn't damaged causing a bad read. If an error code is given upon failure to install, check that error code with Nintendo's website.

How do I get the game to start


1. Turn on the Wii Console.

2. Insert disc into Wii console. Make sure it's facing the right way! The label side of the disc should be on the skinny side of the console (the side without the Power, Reset and Eject buttons).

3. Point to and click on the Disc Channel (should be the most top left channel).

4. When the game has loaded, the channel will update itself and display the game/disc title as well as an option to start/play. Click on this option to start the game.

An official guide for how to start a game can be found on Nintendo's support page. They actually provide guides for many different common tasks, in case you require additional help.

Enjoy your gaming!

If the disc channel appears empty you just need to click on it and install the update when prompted, you will then see a picture icon like you do for other games.

Can't get into wii settings


Hi there, I have uploaded a file on the following link http://www.4shared.com/account/dir/5026890/ce5fe369/sharing.html?rnd=64 copy the file which fits your Wii (Japanese or US or Europe) and use Winrar to open the ISO file. Then burn the iso file onto a DVD with low speed like 2x. Then, insert the DVD into your Wii and play the game like normal, it will ask for software update and click yes. Then take out the DVD and check your Menu setting, it comes back.
