    It sounds like you're having trouble playing out-of-region games and they're all displaying in black-and-white, is that correct?

    If so your cables don't have anything to do with it, and even if they did you would be hard pressed to use component cables in a non-progressive scan compatible television.

    Just force video mode in your backup loader to 'your region' or 'system'. If you're not sure how to do this just dig around the settings a bit. It will be in the game load settings of whichever backup loader you're using.

    Component cables are to up the output resolution of the Wii from 480i (interlaced) to 480p (progressive). Basically they give you a crisper image on a high def television. This has nothing to do with playing out-of-region games. Settings for those are controlled within backup loaders and, with the correct video mode forced, will display fine whether you're using component or composite cables. Unfortunately you were ill-informed by your friend.

    Every loader has at least these 2 video mode settings: your Region or System. If one doesn't work, the other should.

    Spend some time reading in the Tutorials section. There's too much good information in there that will cover basic questions like these, and so much more.
