Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Games are unable to play

Everything was fine then one day a got the zapper with the crossbow links game and now none of my games will play. They load up in the disc menu but when you try and start them the screen goes black and an error message appears telling me to eject the gane and power off the console and try it again. I tried called the Wii people but they seemed clueless. Any idea's or advice would be greatly appreciated.

XBOX 360 Arcade, Game Driver San Francisco unable to load or play from the disc. Loads of memory aailable, Cleared cache. Only having prblems with this game. All other games work fine ?

It could be that it is a pre-owned game, I have had problems with pre-owned games, and have bought a new game that has not been used. Also I have just recently bought that game and had to do and update to the xbox 360 when trying to play that game, you should have got a message to update the system when trying to start the game.

On my r4i ver 1.3, i was unable to play many games as most of the games when loading comes out with a white screen. is the reason due to the games download being corrupted? i am able to play some game...

it is beacuse the games are more recent/newer than the r4 version 1.3 so it cant support thewm, all you need 2 do is go onto the r4 offical site and download the newest r4 version and then the games will/ should work fine :)
Hope this helped!

Can't calibrate the crosshairs on the WiiQualiser with remote???

Ah I see, well since wiiplay lacks any form of calibration in the game and the wii itself does as well. I don't think there's anything you can do to really help in that matter. The Wii pointer is only a general point without some form of calibration.

The closest you can get would be to assure that the consoles sensor bar is set up exactly as the console is told(I.E. if you set it to top it's above the tv) I realise it is frustrating but most recent shooting games(mid 2007+) have some form of calibration, I can't say all because it's difficult to own them all.

I'm sad to report, the only way you'll get calibration would be the Links Crossbow Training and other games like House of the Dead 2&3 but the latter has violence.

Having said that, I think any game is compatible with the wii zapper case as long as the B button is exposed and the numchucks buttons are able to be pressed. However in most cases the zapper is quite superfluous adding only a feel and no real advantage in the game itself.

Wii will do everything but it won't play games.....

I had the same problem. No new games would play but the old games played fine. I clicked on the spinning disc icon (where the game should come up) and it prompted me to do an update. I accepted. Once the update was complete (took about a minute or 2) the new games worked fine.

2nd Wii Remote will only not connect in Link's Crossbow Training

This is a ONE player game. It won't connect because the Wii isn't looking for any additional controllers. It's not a problem.
