Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Upgrade Problem I inserted a new game disc & It said I need to upgrade the System before play the game. I checked OK & upgrading was in progress. However, the electric plug was pulled out accidentally before it finish the upgrade!! I didn't try to power it on again since I think it's too risky before I know what situation I am facing? Any idea what will happen?

Hi cornet913,

It depends on what stage of the upgrade the Wii was at. If it was not near the end then you should be fine. There is part of the process where the Wii clears out the old firmware and replaces it with the new firmware, called flashing. If the Wii was switch off while flashing you might have caused serrious damage to the firmware, which can kill the console.

The only way to know is to try and switch the console back on. So give it a go, in effect if there has been any damage, then it's already done, turning the console on won't make it any worse.

If it doesn't work, call ninetendo, they might be able to repair it for you.

To solve this error :

Never eject disc while game is in use.
Delete all your messages.
If playing a game on disc, clean the disc off and ensure disc is inserted properly.
Upgrade your firmware to the latest version.
Under Game settings, set PS/PS2 Upscaler to Off.
Restart your Playstation 3 and try again.
If all else fails, the disc might be defective.

My wii won't play the new wii games.Need to know how to upgrade?It will play the older wii games.


hi there,
the best and easiest way to upgrade the firmware on your wii is to connect the wii to your internet and look for system update in the system settings and update that way. Altthough most games that need newer firmware come with the update installed on the disc, normally once you insert the disc it will tell you it need to update the system firmware in order for the game to work, so i'm not sure why this is not happening for you if your new games not playing. The only thing i can think of if it's not updating automatically is that the wii has been chipped/modded in some way, has it? If it has'nt just connect the wii to the internet you should be able to update it that way.
Hope that helps

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade
