    Hi there,
    Thanks so much for the guide - I'm really grateful for this info.

    One of the main reason I wanted to use the softmod is to play NTSC Gamecube games on my PAL Wii. I'm pretty sure that usually the only difference between PAL and NTSC Gamecubes is regional lockout and that if this is disabled, then I would have thought that an NTSC GC game would run just as well on my wii as a PAL one, especially as I am using component with the Wii set at 480p output.

    The problem is this: My NTSC burned version of Wave race blue storm (one of my favourite ever games) looks blurrier than my retail PAL version.

    Also, the ratio displays differently on the NTSC version. The Pal version will display full screen (stretched, I know but I perfer it to bordered) but the NTSC burned version has borders (albeit small ones)

    The game looks just as blurry in progressive scan mode as in 480i mode.

    I would much rather play the NTSC version as it displays at 60hz.
    Thanks for your time,

    GameCube

    This is what is meant by gamecube section, not within a guide to install necessary software to get them to run.

    i need same help i can't get backup laoder working not sure if anything i'm doing is right. i play wii games on USB but i what to play gamecube backups . i check at Wii Drive Chip Database and said our drive most likely has the following chipset:
    • There is a 50% chance the chipset is Combined GC2-D3 with no drive chip.
    • And there is also a 50% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip.

    You more than likely have the undesired chipset if it is not working, based on your info.

    If your Wii was manufactured in December 2009 or newer, then more than likely you have a DVD drive that cannot read backups. If you think that your Wii can read backups, then look at the guide in the first post, there is a cMIOS there you can install, do not use a different cMIOS installer. Usually a green screen when trying to play GC backups means you didn't install the cMIOS. Use the DVD -R, if yo must use DVD +R then make sure to set the book type to DVD-ROM.

    It works with original games as well. It gives you an error but the gam runs. Just putting it out there.

    Does anybody know why Nintendo used different drives? Was it just to prevent playing backup discs, or are they cheaper?
