I want to play the winter sports 2009 game using my wii balance board, the instructions say to start in position using the remotes. However the balance board does not work when i try to ski. Do I need to synch up the balance board with the game inserted as I did for my wii fit? This is not mentioned in the instructions.

Unfortunately, no, you cannot format the Wii to accept different region codes. But, you say the UAE is where you bought the Wii, which I assume is the United Arab Emirates? Which would be Region Code 2, which includes Europe, the Middle East, South Africa and Greenland. Region code 1 includes only the United States of America and Canada. However, if the Winter Sport 2012 is a dual-layer dvd disc, the Wii can have issues reading it. This is a common problem with the game Super Smash Bros. Melee. The Wii's laser reader was not initially designed to read such formats and may need cleaning in order to read the disc. The Wii has a laser disc cleaner system that you can buy from most game stores that can clean the laser so that it emits a strong enough light to read a dual-layer disc. This has worked for me every time in the past.
Synching can be completed only if a compatible game disc is running in the console. Compatible game discs (such as Wii Fit) will display the Wii Balance Board icon on their packaging. The Wii Balance Board must be synced to each compatible game individually. These sync settings will be saved even after the console is turned off.
Follow these directions to sync the Wii Balance Board (so that it is recognized by the Wii console):
Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc (such as Wii Fit) in the Wii console.
Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking.
Press and release the SYNC button on the console while the Power LED on the board is still blinking.
The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is complete.
If the Wii Balance Board fails to operate, or operates incorrectly, follow the steps below before seeking
A. Check the batteries.
B. Check to be sure there is nothing pressing against the bottom.
C. If you are using it on soft carpet, put the foot extensions on.
1. The Wii Balance Board does not respond.
• Make sure the power is turned on. The blue Power LED should be lit if the Power Button has been
pressed. (The Power Button faces away from the TV.)
• Make sure the board has been placed correctly (see page 6).
• Make sure the batteries have been inserted correctly and are not been depleted.
• Make sure the game you are playing is compatible with the Wii Balance Board.
• Review the synchronization procedure on pages 7-8 and make sure this has been done correctly.
This procedure must be done for each Wii Balance Board compatible game.
• If, after verifying the steps above, the Wii Balance Board does not work, try the following:
1. Turn off the power of the Wii console with the POWER Button on the front of the console.
2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds, then plug it back in again.
3. Turn on the power of the Wii console.
4. Repeat the steps in this Operations Manual for setting up the board.
If the Wii Balance Board still does not work, follow the information at the bottom of this page.
2. Control of the Wii Balance Board is inconsistent or seems incorrect.
• Review the Instruction booklet for the game you are playing to make sure you are performing the
correct actions for that game.
• Make sure the board has been placed correctly (see page 6).
• Try using the Wii Balance Board foot extensions if you are using the board on carpet (see page 10).
• Make sure there are no people or other objects between you and the Sensor Bar.
• Avoid interference from other devices. If communication seems to be affected by other devices
(wireless LAN, microwave ovens, cordless devices, computers) move to another location if possible,
or turn off the interfering device.
If the Wii Balance Board still does not work, follow the information below.
If the Wii Balance Board still does not work, an operational check procedure is available
in the Options Menu of the game you are playing. See the Instruction booklet included
with the Game Disc for more information. If your Wii Balance Board does not operate
correctly after all of the above steps, visit support.nintendo.com for assistance and
additional troubleshooting and repair options or call 1-800-255-3700.
are you able to get any of your controllers to connect? if not it could be a issue with your sensor bar. please provide a bit more info
but try this first
Synchronizing the Wii Balance Board with your Wii Console IMPORTANT: To operate correctly, the Wii Balance Board must be synchronized with the Wii console using Standard Mode Synchronization. Follow the steps below to synchronize the board to the console.
This procedure must be followed for each Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc.
These synchronization settings will be saved even if the console is turned off.
This procedure can be completed only if a compatible Game Disc is running in the console.
Press the EJECT Button on the front of the Wii console and remove any game disc if necessary. Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc.
Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel on the Wii Menu screen and select START.
Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console. NOTE: Close the SD Card slot cover when you are finished with the synchronization procedure.
Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board. NOTE: Replace the Battery Cover when you are finished with the aynchronization procedure.
Press the SYNCHRO Button (SYNC.) on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking (for up to about 20 seconds).
Press the SYNCHRO Button (SYNC.) on the console while the Power LED on the board is blinking.
IMPORTANT: Do not press and hold the SYNCHRO Button on the Wii console down for more than 10 seconds. This will delete all of the Standard Mode synchronization information for all Wii Remotes that you use with that console.
The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is complete. You are now ready to play the Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc. Please refer to the instruction booklet for the Game Disc you are using for further information on gameplay.
Only one Wii Balance Board can be synchronized to a Wii console at a time. Up to a total of 10 Wii Remotes and accessories can be synchronized to a console at any time with the Standard Mode procedure. If additional synchronizations are made, the oldest existing ones will be overwritten.
The Wii Balance Board can only be synchronized to one console at a time using the Standard Mode procedure. If you change the console you are using the board with, you will have to repeat the synchronization procedure each time.
The Wii Balance Board uses the Player 4 (P4) connection. If a Wii Remote is actively using P4, that remote will be disconnected while the board is being used.
