1. You better use the PAL version because you might need to update your wii

3. Do not update online - it will install system menu 4.2 which will prevent you from playing games from other regions
4. 99.9% sure you will play your games (unless they are not bad iso's or bad discs)
5. If you update online you will get the latest system menu and the only thing it ruins is playing imports (NTSC, JAP etc.). If you update using the new super mario bros disc you are safe :)
6. AFAIK we are not supposed to post links here but I believe the release you are looking for is New_Super_Mario_Bros_Wii_PAL_Wii-BAHAMUT
1. You can tell firmware by going to main screen on wii, hitting wii button, select wii settings, on the top it will say ver 3.4 most likely.

3. There are a few ways, the easiest is with the disk, but you have to make sure for a couple of things. 1) It has to be a disk in the same region as your Wii (NTSC for USA, etc). If you do an update using a out of region disk, you will brick your Wii. The other way is to use dopios - Dop-IOS/Dop-IOS MOD - WiiBrew . But you need to read first on how to update, and it is best to have an internet connection.
4. refer to #2. What are the games? (never mind I see, I would follow my suggestion at the bottom)
5. As long as the disk is the same region as your wii, the only possibility is not being able to play out of region disks. If you update from a NSMB disk that is in your region, it will push the system menu to 4.1U. I did try and it pushed mine to 4.1U. You can still play out of region.
6. Try tehparadox.com.
Follow your steps as described above but don't scrub the image with WIU1.1 because that will remove your update software. I would make sure the disk is in region (pal), it will say system update needed, update the wii and then run!
If I helped you out, click thanks!
- I've followed the instructions above and worked fine for my wii 3.2u ntsc-wasabi dx v3.0. I updated the wii to 4.1u using the NSMB "NTSC". Important: Patch the game image with the tool from wasabi site. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

I seem a little confused with your thread. Do you want to play the original disk (OEM Disk) of NSMB. Then ok, go ahead.
If you have a wasabi DX chip, and you want to play a backup, all you need is an unmodified ISO. Then go to the wasabi dx webiste downloads - Wasabi Wii Modchip - Compatible with DMS, D2A, D2B, D2C, D2C2, D2E - Upgradable from DVD - Simply the best Select BCA patcher for NSMB, and then patch the iso. Burn and enjoy. No need to do anything else.
I want to play original, it stops at the end of level 1 and I get error pls remove disk,

If it is dirty clean with a soft cloth and a tiny bit of water, wipe from the inside out, not around. If it is really scratched you have little luck but to try to have cleaned by one of those machines or replacing the disk with another one.
