Hi Wiiboy,

Try having a Wiikey fitted. See this link, it's one of many-try googling for it .

Be very careful their are a lot of clone keys (mod-chips), make sure you get an original. It's a fairly complex dismantling procedure, lots of detailed videos on U-Tube. You also need a fancy tri-blade (or tri-wing screwdriver) often called the nintento screwdriver. I'd have somebody reputable fit it for you. All in I'd expect you to be charged about £ 50, labour and parts.

Hope this helps.

Spare head 2.

My Wii will not Play GC games. It tells me "Unable to read disk, Check operations manual". Game has no scratches and my Wii is about 3years old. Plays Wii games just fine so I don't know...

Check your serial number on your Wii. If it starts with KU, it can't read them. If it starts with LU, and it's ONLY GC games it won't play, then your system needs to be repaired.

Out of warranty repair cost is $85 plus tax for America.

Wont read disc


Insert the disc into the console properly. If the Wii is positioned vertically you should face the label to the right. If you lay the Wii flat, make sure the label is facing up when you insert it.

Check the disc for residue. If you spot something on the disc that could interfere with its operation or potentially get inside the console, you need to clean it. Use a dry cloth and wipe the bottom of the disc from the inside out. Do not rub it in a circular motion. This could scratch the disc.

Read the label. Wii consoles in North America will play game discs made for use in North America only. On the bottom of the label you should see a note that the disc is manufactured for Wii consoles in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Latin America.

Turn the power of the Wii off. Disconnect the AC adapter from the wall outlet and wait a couple of minutes. Plug the adapter back in and turn the console back on. Insert the disc again and see if it works.

Going to the states will there games play on my wii here also my son working over there thought he could send the games home for presents if they work

Yes their games will play fine on your Wii, and yes you can send games home. Wii systems sold here only work in Canada, US and South America.
Now if you were trying to do that with a Japan game, they have a different region code then us (Canada, US) So if you wanted to play Japan games on a Canadian/United States Wii you would have to install a mod chip for that to work.

My parents have just got back from a holiday in the states. they brought me 2 wii games home but i cant play them because there not zoned here. is there anything that i could do so i can play these games

I am sorry to tell you that if your Wii is from outside of North America then no you can not play these games. You will need to trade those games for games that match the region your Wii is from. Nintendo did not make the games and systems region free.

US System = Spiderman disk

You can't play North America games on a European Wii. You'll have to return the game.
