Mario Kart no start up

if you have upgraded your software on your wii, your freeloader won't work anymore. Mario carts is written in a way to stop people using programs such as freeloader. Its something called signed trucha, other people will not more. You could try buying a UK mario cart on ebay and trying that. Otherwise, looking into getting it mod chipped to overcome the region barriers. But always buy original games for it

Error, remove disc, turn power off

In Singapore, your region is considered "Asia." The simplest way to play Wii games on a Wii from a different region was using Datel's Freeloader disc, but unfortunately Nintendo has patched their firmware blocking the use of this. There are other ways to modify your console to play games from other regions, but all carry a high pricetag and a great deal of risk, and Nintendo can patch the firmware to detect your modification and stop your system from working. You might consider importing a Wii from the UK using or a similar retailer. Best of luck!

Hey Preksha,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the Nintendo Wii is currently available in both the NTSC and PAL formats. Due to fact that the U.S. primarily utilizes NTSC-format devices, the vast majority of Wii's sold through U.S. retailers most likely would be NTSC-compatible models - this would also apply to the video games sold for the console itself. Keep in mind that there may be some exceptions, but they will most likely be limited to specality stores and direct importers.

In order to ensure that a Wii purchased within the U.S. functions overseas, you would need to make sure that the TV it is connected to is capable of supporting the NTSC format and that the video game(s) purchased for the console were obtained/imported through a country that utilizes the NTSC format as well (U.S., Canada, or Japan). Unfortunately, PAL-coded games may not function in an NTSC-formatted console, and visa versa.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Only pal games work on UK wii's. Thats UK and Europe.
