You'll have to mod the console. If it has 4.2U as its system menu version, then you can use the bannerbomb soft-mod method. Anything before that is pretty much Twilight Hack area.
The other option is to buy a european Wii. It's a ridiculous means to an end and is way more frustrating than having to modify the console; which in effect ruins your warranty and is punishable by law.
I'm not going to give any links to the proper guides for modding the console, as that would be implicating myself in illegal activities.
All in all, never buy any electronics from anywhere in the world other than possibly Japan or Hong Kong. Even then, it has to be english stuff that just happens to be shipped from there.

You should be able to mod it with this. But there are other free guides out there, you should be able to find on google.

I bought a DVD set from Ireland and it won't play on my DVD player or my Wii. Is there a setting I need to change?


Hi there!
North American TVs, consoles and DVD players play video and games in the NTSC format (region 1), while Ireland's and most of Europe's play in PAL(region 2). You best bet to be able to watch your dvd set will be to purchase a dvd player that plays multi regions (these will be a bit more expensive) or to order a region 2 dvd player from Ireland or somewhere in Europe that uses region 2.

Hope this helps!

Wii plays in black and white


That happens when your wii and your Tv set don't have the same region, for example a PAL TV and a NTSC Wii, some TVs have the option for changing the input region mode. An European wii will always be PAL and an american wii will always be NTSC.

I bought a wii console but i cant play cheap games, i only need original games. A friend lent me one original and licensed game(Pro evolution soccer 2008), i only have "Wii sports", in my city do...


Hi markitos,

Original games should work unless you are trying to play a game from a different region, for example playing a PAL game on a NTSC console, check on pro evolution soccer to see what it states then check your wii sports and see what region its from make sure they are both the same. Otherwise the pro evolution soccer could be counterfeit.

Regards,

Oliver

We bought the Wii Mario Kart in England and it won't work on our Wii station in the US. We get a message that says "unable to read the disc". What should we do?


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.

Wii "invalid format"


Back-up games cannot be played until you get your Wii modded. if you didn't do this yet, you cannot play them. Your TV has to do nothing with it, its the format you put on the CD.


Tip: Try to use Verbatim disks, they can be read on the Wii.

Tip: You need to put the file on the disk as a ''.ISO'' format.

Does Nintendo Wii work abroad?


Hey Erolon,

Nintendo Wii's sold within the United States will primarily be NTSC-formatted devices. Unfortunately, because Europe utilizes the PAL format instead of NTSC, you would need to have an NTSC-compliant TV in order to use a Wii purchased within the U.S.

Please also keep in mind that video games are often region-coded to work only with the consoles sold in the same area of the world. In other words...if you were to purchase a Wii within the U.S., you would only be able to play video games purchased within the U.S. as well.

Additionally, remember that the United States and Europe use different electrical standards: 110V/60Hz for the U.S. and 220V/50Hz for Europe. In order for any electrical device purchased within the U.S. to function properly overseas, a voltage adaptor may be required.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Hey buddy FORMAT DISC means PAL games or NTSC games format.

There are 2 formats dics in this world for the PS1,PS2,PSP,Wii,Gamecube.etc

They are [NTSC] and [PAL]

[NTSC] is for North America and Japan ONLY. [NTSC] is Original games.

[PAL] is for Asia Only. Which is copied games form the Originals.

I need to know were did you bought PS2 Console from ?

If you bought it in North America or Japan then you have to buy and play Original games from North America Only.

If you bought your PS2 in Asia then you can play copied games.

It is most likely your PS2 is a NTSC, your PS2 cant read any PAL games so it will say format dics.
