Hello. If you have the correct version (people have bought the ps2 version before on accident) here are the directions.

With the console stood upright (with the power button facing you at the top left),
lift the flap on the top of the console. You will find the ports under this flap. Plug your mat into Port #1.

Make sure that your Wii is turned off before plugging in your mat.
Also, make sure the connection is secure to your console.
Then with the game in the Wii, turn on your console.
The mat should be recognized at that point.

I hope this helps!! Good luck and happy gaming!!

    Then check the other door next to the memory card slots!! If thats the wrong hook up then you bought the wrong one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have the Wii version of the DDR2 mat. There is only an SD card slot and red sync button under the flap on the console. There are no 3/8 round with a flat side shaped ports on the Wii console?

    Helen, There are 2 other flaps/doors on the side of the Wii, the larger one has 4 circular ports, those are what you need to use. Thanks!!

How do I connect my XBOX Pump it Up dance pad to the console?

It sounds to me like the dance mat/pad is made for the Nintendo Wii especially if it looks like the old GameCube controller connection is basically what you have described. I hope this helps.

If the plug on the dance mat is round, plug it into the side of the Wii in one of the ports pictured below.
Now, if the plug on the mat looks like the one below then you have purchased the Playstation version and it can not be used with the Wii.

Dance mat

The only controllers that plug directly into the Wii console are GameCube controllers (and USB keyboard for messaging and Internet Channel).

Everything else plugs into the Wii Remote.
