We downloaded Mario Bros (original) on the Wii It takes the original Nintendo controller to operate, but how do we plug the original Nintendo controller into the Wii ???

Original controller as in the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) controller? The NES controller is not officially supported on the Wii, however an adapter exists that goes into the GameCube controller ports which can be purchased at RetroPort. The other control methods the game supports are Wiimote (turned on it's side which acts just like a NES controller), GameCube controller, and the Classic Controller. Hope this helps!

Purchased and downloaded Super Mario Bros 3 on Nintendo Wii. When we launched the game it went to a black screen. When I press the (home) button, the menu comes up and game is visible in background, but...

I have the same problem. only I downloaded the game about a year ago, and it just stopped working about a month ago. I have deleted it and re-downloaded several times, it did nothing. my other wii still plays mario 3 fine. I have no idea why this is going on.

Original NES image problems

Courtesy of Nintendo Repair Shop, try this site out I heard they are pretty reliable. Sounds to me like a new connector is in order for your NES. They tend to go after a while and the connections get worn out. Here is the link:

Give it a shot and rate me when you can. Thanks.
