    Say Hello for everyone and Help needed :-)


    This is Merv, a Chinese from Australia -- the time in here is 420am ... but I still could not get to sleep as I was fail to figure out how to use my Red wii to play burned copy :-(

    I have one Mario limited edition Red Wii, the original system version is 4.3E...

    I checked with one hk forum -- and successfully installed homebrew Chanel and IOS236 Installer -- i am not gonna to mention the hardships of the process in here :-)

    Everything has been done, however, I tried to insert a burned game copy to this modded Red Wii... it couldnt be recognized by system, I changed a genuine NTSC copy (we belongs Pal), still doesnt work.

    Here, just hope, can get advise or instructions from people , i really want to play burned game rather than use HDD.

    Many thanks.

    Colored Wii's will not play backup discs. Usb loading is your only option.

    Hi Merv! I'm afraid you'll have the same problem as me with my black, the disc drive cannot play copied discs (or DVD's, anything other than wii/ GC games), You can only use USB HDD or SD card. Or you can buy a drive for it and fit it so you can play discs, but tbh i think it's more hassle then it's worth.
