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.

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.

Wii consoles are region-specific and different regions also use different television standards.

You have potentially three problems:
  1. Wii consoles are region-specific. Games for US/Canada won't work in a European Wii
  2. European Wii consoles output PAL video signals. US/Canada/Japan TVs except NTSC video signals.
  3. European Wii consoles likely require 220-volt power. US/Canada/Japan is 100-120-volt power.
So now your solutions for each:
  1. You need to get games from France (or at least Europe)
    You can also look into a device called the Freeloader, but I'm not sure if it works with Wii games yet (the original allowed Gamecube consoles to play games from different regions)
  2. You'll need a multi-standard TV, or a television standards converter. Tourist-y camera shops often sell converter boxes. You need to convert from a PAL video signal to an NTSC video signal in order to connect it to your TV.
  3. Check the power adapter of the Wii. If it lists "110-240 volts" or "100-240 volts" (at least a voltage number in the 100-something range) on it, then the power supply will work and you just need an international plug adapter. You can get these from most travel stores and electronics stores.
    If the power adapter does not list a voltage in the 100-something range on it, then you will need a step-up transformer - that will convert power from 120-volt to 220-volt or 240-volt. The transformer may or may not have the right type of power receptacle, so you may also need a plug adapter. Check your local electronics store for this. Tell them you have a device from Europe and want to run it on your local electrical power. They should know what you need. If you have a choice, get one that is designed for computer or laptop use, as the cheaper ones provide "dirty" power which is fine for hair dryers and such, but bad for electronics.
Hope that helps...

Nintendo wii consule (european german version)


Hi,

The Wii Sports manual can be downloaded here

The manual for the Wii console itself can be obtained here

As for changing the language in Wii Sports, I am not sure, but it usually gives you the option when the game first starts up, otherwise it might use the system language.

Thanks.
