    Hi, I just came across this forum and read a few posts. They are very informative, but I have yet to find a post that has had my issue.

    I got a Wii as a gift a few months ago. However, this Wii is a Japanese model and it was modded.

    I’ve been able to play burned games as well as real ones. I bought Guitar Hero III here in America and it works perfectly fine with my console. However, yesterday morning I bought SSBB and my console couldn’t read it. I understand that a few people have had problems reading the Brawl disc b/c their lasers couldn’t read the dual layer so they sent it to Nintendo. However, I obviously will not be able to do that since my system is modded.

    I do not know if the mod is a chip or a software that’s installed on the Wii. Regardless, I cannot tell if the reason for not being able to read Brawl is because my system is Japanese (out of region) or because it is modded. Does anybody know how to possibly change a Wii to “all-region,” or “un-mod” the console? Or if you could link me to a place that could possibly give me the answer, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Either your Wii has problems with DLs, or you have a Wiikey.

    you should have checked before you buy ssbb

    your best bet imo is to wait for a wiikey update
