    Hello from Ireland

    Hi guys, thanks for having me. I am on my second wii v4.3E, after modding the first one I let my nephew have it. I followed the guide soft mod any wii, (thank you for that).
    well I'm looking for some advice about playing games from another region if anyone has the time to help I would really appericate it. thank you.

    Welcome to WiiHacks! For region free gaming you should need only enable the region free option in Priiloader, then your out of region discs should read

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    thanks for that, the wii I have is the black one can I swap drives with the one I gave my nephew to play dvd's as he does not use his for that purpose. or is there more to it than just swapping disk drives

    Why would you need to be swapping disc drives?

    Sorry I should probably give you a bit more info on what I am trying to do. After soft modding my black Wii 4.3E, to play region free games I mistakenly tried a DVD that came with the game my friend sent me from Canada instead of the game itself. that's when I taught the region unlock did not work, but after realizing it was not the game that's when i decided to test one of my own DVDs which did not load either, I tested them in wiimc and still nothing, so I looked around this site and seen a lot about disc drives in the newer Wii's don't play DVDs. that's where i had the idea of taking the drive from my old Wii that does play DVDs and popping it in to my new Wii. my question is. can I get my Wii to play movies from disks Ive purchased without swapping drives ?. thanks for your patience and sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Honestly, I'd buy a cheap $20 DVD player from walmart instead of trying to jack-up a Wii to do what you want.
