It's from a different region, so it won't work at all unless you either:
A) Buy a european Wii
or
B) Mod your Wii to free up the regions.
North America and Japan (as well as some other random places) use NTSC format, while Europe (and other random places) use PAL format. You can't play PAL on NTSC and vice-versa.

    I'm sorry if you're not satisfied with that answer. There's really nothing that can be done other than what I had listed above, so I guess it's more or less a life lesson.

Won't read disc anymore and have cleaned it as instructed...the console reads other discs.


If your Wii is reading other discs fine but not the mario kart disc, then the disc has to be the problem. Look at it in a light and you might see some deep scratches or parts of the disc that have peeled off which is why the system isn't reading the disc.

Regardless, this time buy a new Mario Kart disc that way you know the disc won't be defective and won't be used by anybody else.

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
