    Playing PAL .iso on NTSC system, modchip dvdburn

    So I see a lot of threads on softmods but my system has a modchip in it. I have tried regionfrii and had no luck, any other suggestions? I have burned this game before but I don't remember what I did to make it work on my wii. Thanks!

    I find your lack of details disturbing... What system menu? What game? What chip? If you're on 4.2 you lost the ability to play out of region games.

    I'm new to this, hence the "Newbie" discussion form. The chip is a wiikey, my system is first gen so D2B, the game is Mario Kart PAL and it is a .iso. Thanks for the help

    Go to wii settings and in the corner you'll see a number like 3.4, 4.1, or 4.2. Might be another number as well. If you did an online update to 4.2 you can no longer play out of region games via disc.

    Ok so if that is the case is there a way to reverse it, or is it just not worth it. Cuz there are a lot of games available in PAL that are sometimes harder to come by in NTSC

    Fortunately for you, mauifrog has recently come up with just such a solution for you here (presuming you're hardmodded and on 4.2)

    Mauifrog has a guide on restoring region free to 4.2 but if you're not comfortable with that if you are on 4.2 you either have to softmod or stick to games from your region

    Either way, to a degree it involves softmodding ---- unless user sticks to in-region only titles --- agreed.

    Thank you so much for your help. I have the upgraded 4.2U, at least thats what it says on the wii system menu. So problem, I didn't quite understand the mauifrog instructions properly, and I don't want to mess anyhting up. From my understanding I load the first file onto a SD card and open it, but what of all the extra files? And is it possible to do it by USB. Once again sorry for the newbie questions I just don't want to mess anything up.
